Here it is!!

The pictures of my classroom! I finally got it just where I *think* I want it today...and truthfully if students walked in tomorrow - it would be ready. Although, I'm sure I'll change several things before Wednesday when they actually do come in.

So this week I went back to work - just teachers, no kids yet. I've had lots & lots & lots of meetings, but also lots of time to work in my room. My sister came in on Monday to help & she did so much for me - I am blessed. Here is a glimpse at my new room!


This bulletin board will be finished by the kids on the first day - it will be a mural, created by them from the characters in the book Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing...which will be the first read aloud...


Here are the beautiful curtains My Andrea made for me - aren't they the greatest!! Again, I am so blessed...


Side view of the classroom (notice the disco ball? I couldn't help myself - it had to come with me...)


Library book basket & board that I 'scrapped' over the top of the chalk board. Now I will use it with magnets for posters, info, etc.

That's all for now...

Wow! It looks wonderful, Honey!!!! You and your slaves have done a great job! The kids will appreciate the tone you are setting and learn all the more. I am very proud of you. Love, Mom :)

It looks great Jessie! I love it! Can I be in your class? Better yet, move back here and teach 2nd grade next year. :)
