The first week back to school was a success! As always, the first week was long and tiring but it was very exciting. I love my new class!
|My van all loaded up and ready to head to school to set up|
I moved from middle school to fifth grade this year so that meant moving to a new classroom. If you are a teacher, you know how much effort goes into setting up a new room for a new grade level. Here are some pictures of my room when I arrived two weeks ago
Here is what it looks like after I added my touch to it...
|The hallway outside my classroom|
I teach at a Christian school where all of the Elementary classrooms have the same theme. This year's theme is F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely On God) so there are plenty of frogs around the room.
|I wrote each of the student's names on the frogs|
|View from the hallway (Rug $19.99 from Ikea)|
|I have 18 students in my class so I felt placing the desks into 4 groups made the best use of the small space (Curtains from Ikea $14.99 a pair)|
|Table signs hanging over each group of desks- signs can be found at Teachers Pay Teachers|
|Continuing the Frog theme with my Birthday chart|
|This Fun Frog printable was FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers|
|I purchased these Frog themed Classroom Rules posters from Teachers Pay Teachers|
|One of my middle school students last year drew this scientist for me.|
|The empty bulletin board will be filled with speech bubbles and pictures of the kids. The kids will write their goals of the speech bubbles.|
|My cursive alphabet has a science theme. This is an easy way to incorporate more science into your elementary classroom. I purchased them on Teachers Pay Teachers.|
|I love working at a Christian school! I can openly share my faith! You can print the poster on the right for FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers and the poster on the left for FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers.|
|I love having a podium. The bar stool is from IKEA.|
|FREE printable from Teachers Pay Teachers hanging on the front of my podium.|
|One of my pet peeves is when people don't use these correctly. So I have these posters hanging on the walls. I printed them for FREE from Teachers Pay Teachers.|
|I purchased these Sterlite file boxes from Walmart and decorated them with an editable file from Teachers Pay Teachers.|
|Every time the students check the time they see this sign.|
I will be super busy the next few weeks with my class and with my additional coaching duties but I plan to post about some more of the fun ideas that you can see in my classroom!
