I'm D-O-N-E. Pics of my finished classroom.


Update June 2012 
**I'm linking this post with The Applicious Teacher.  I know that birdies and green/blue are very popular this year.  Maybe someone will get inspiration:)  
For the 2013-2014 School Year I plan on decorating with Mermaids.  I'm also making some class decor packs for friends at work that you'll find in my TpT store:)  Right now I've got Zebra and Animal Print.  Ladybugs, Polka-Dots and Chevron, Monsters and SuperHeros to come:)

My classroom basically looks like pintrest jumped out of the screen and landed in my room!! *WARNING* PIC Heavy Post

When you enter my classroom door, this is pretty much what you see.  


This is my classroom library and all the different shots of it:) It's probably my favorite spot in the room!
  
To create the pillows, I just printed a full page sized letter and cut it out to make a template. I ironed wonder-under onto the material.  I traced, cut and ironed the letters onto the pillows.  I used mod podge around the edges b/c I didn't have any frey check.  
I know I downloaded this from a blog of a Kinder teacher, but I can't find it.  If it's your creation, please let me know!

My great work spotted wall!  Again, inspired by   http://clutterfreeclassroom.blogspot.com/  

You'll find the text features at primarypunch.blogspot.com

I'm not finished with my Q of the Day (I put a header on it, but didn't like it. So I'll make a new one before school on Monday).  You can find the Q of the Day at one of my favorite 3rd grade blogs

You can find the clipchart at thecolorfulclassroom.blogspot.com
I got the hand signal signs from   http://clutterfreeclassroom.blogspot.com/  during the TpT sale
I also got the pieces on my focus wall from one of my fav 3rd grade blogs -

This is organized, for me.

My $3 find at wal-greens!  The other one won't open. I have to take it back tomorrow...
This was my 1st birdie.  He kind of inspired the room.
Above: Flower Stickers that I glued Magnets to!  Cutie
Inside my crates.  I put those HUGE erasers in there.  Pencils aren't a huge issue, but erasers are hard to come by in my classroom!
I labeled every table to match the Exit Ticket Poster.  

I found this pic online of a vinyl cling called Tree of Knowledge. I tried to re-make it using stickers from the Dollar Tree.  The Letters READ are from a Baby Shower Banner I found at Wal-Mart on Clearance for .55c!!  Sorry the pic isn't great, the one from the front had serious "glare".  Yes, I ran out of hot pink border, but luckily a friend down the hall bought light pink!  Normally I don't 2-tone.



The things hanging from the ceiling are killing me!  I feel claustrophobic.  I think they have about a week and then I'll take them down.  I know for many of you, a cute, pretty classroom is fairly easy to create but not for me!  It seriously took me weeks of planning and I think it looks great!!!  I'm a wonderful copy-catter!!!

I love your room! Your bulletin boards are adorable!

Deniece Frideley said...

Thanks! I love the focus wall, but I'm not good at keeping it up. Having it cute isn't helping either! I want it to stay cute and not cluttered.
