So, my new room's smaller, but I love it now that it's done! This is the view from the doorway to the hall. We all were upgraded to Polyvision boards last year. They make Promethean boards look like slate boards! In this room, I have a TON more whiteboard left over, too.
Here's the view of my two little windows. I LOVE them, and especially the fact that they could be open in August in South Carolina!!! My friend Jennifer helped me hang the bunting, and thought of the flowers at each point. She's so talented!
Pretty much my whole back wall here - you're just missing some file cabinets. I'm in total love with the WALL SPACE I have in this room!
Our school theme is We're WILD About Learning, so I went with the safari take on that. My "noodle" tree, inspired by Deanna Jump's has the whole umbrella under all those leaves. I found the little shutter at Goodwill, added some silk leaves, and thought it helped the fact that my tree is planted in a cardboard box (a lot!). I will be adding student photos to the circles you see. They cover clothespins to hold student work on display.
Well, there it is! Today was the first day for students, and my class ROCKED! They were excited to be back at school, paid really good attention, and they seem to all work well together so far, too. It's gonna be a great year!
