Classroom Decorating: Day Nine

It's almost done! Just a few finishing touches and all will be complete! Here's what was accomplished today:

Accomplished: Student work display over cubbies
***I've been wanting to have these adorable bees by Sarah Cooley in my classroom since I first saw them. Are they not the cutest things ever??? 

***Couple of things to note. 1. I ran out of bees. I was two short, so that's why the right side is lacking and 2. I still need to add names to each paper

Accomplished: Most of the door...I'm wayyyyy ahead of schedule! I was doing my door the day of parent night last year! 
I saw this door at the school we went to Wednesday for the NEAECC. I still need to put the letters up. It will say "Ms. Leslie Ann's Class is Something to Tweet About"

I also moved my 'mailbox' to the side of the door (instead of on it) and added my name.

I'm loving the name plates I found this year! I love the green polka dots. Here's how they look on the students' desk:

There isn't a whole lot left to do which makes me so happy! :) 


  1. Love love love your door and the bee wall... super cute!

  3. Soooc cute! I love the ideas of using the bees to display their work! I'm going to use your idea with the birds and "Work to "Tweet" about!" Love your classroom!

  4. Love it all! Question: Is that a mural painted on the bricks to the left of the door (the area where your mailbox is now located)? If so, did you paint it? WOW!!

  5. I see you have a basket on the desks. Does this stay on them? I was wondering how it works out for the students when they open their desks?

  6. It looks great. I love the new blog design too...easier to read. :-)
