I confess: one of my favorite things about teaching is decorating my classroom. Love, love, love it! I love thinking about new colors for bulletin boards and new things to create. I love changing up the layout of the classroom so that it has a different feel than the previous year. Today I went out to work in my classroom. This is what I open the door to:
Needless to say, there's a lot of work to be done, especially after I tore down the only two boards I left up, the focus board and the word wall. I have some cute ideas in my head, so hopefully they will turn out the way they appear in my mind. :)
The one thing I got done today was the fabric and border for the math board. I have NEVER made a math/calendar board that I have liked, or left the same all year. Soooo, I decided to theme this one around Dr. Seuss. I absolutely adore Dr. Seuss, so I'm hoping he will help me create a cute math area. I'm loving it so far, even if I haven't put anything on it yet :)
*** Disregard the number line. I'm redoing it and using my Dr. Seuss number line when I find where I've put it....
You really can't tell in the picture, but the fabric is red polka dot. It looks maroon in the pic, but it's more of a red red. Of course I forgot my camera so I had to use my iphone, which accounts for the bad pic quality.
More pics to come!
