Slowly but surely, the classroom is coming together. It still looks like a teacher supply store exploded all over my classroom and I don't know where in the world it's all going, but it is coming together. :) Here's what I've accomplished so far.
Focus Board started. I found these two cute cupcakes in my cabinet that I had bought a loonng time ago at Pier One. I decided to use these for this board and create a "Sweet Treats" theme. I should have taken a close up pic of the cupcakes...they kinda look like pineapples in these pics :)
Aren't these shelves neat?? I am loving how they look and how much storage they added. I found them at Lowes on sale. The baskets are sold separately, so it was a little more than I planned to spend since I bought two, but I think it will really help keep everything organized for my centers. It also helped form the reading area.
Something will be on top of these shelves, just not sure what yet.
Mailboxes. They will look much better when I get the names and labels on each box. I'm also not loving the three buckets I have on the top, but I like the idea of the buckets, just not these.
Small group meeting area. The word wall will go on the wall behind this, so that'll help make the space cozier. Check out my spray painted chairs :) I've got two more to add to this area, but they are currently being painted by my dad.
Don't be fooled. Those books may look like they're sorted into themes and categories, but they're not. :D That's on my to do list. The board behind the cubbies will be a student work display like the bee board in my old room.
Math board: The theme for this board is Curious George, which I'm really hoping turns out as cute as it is in my head. Does anyone use the series Go Math! ? We just adopted this program and they incorporate Curious George, which I didn't know until after I had decided to theme the board like this, so I thought that was kinda neat. Any thoughts on this series? I'd love to hear them! It looks good, so I'm excited about it.
This board is really cute, but the picture of it isn't good. It will be the concept question board.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
