Classroom Reveal!

Hi all!! I've been MIA for a week now, and with good reason. I was finally let into my room last Monday and have spent 10 hours in that place everyday since. All boxes are unpacked, the room is decorated and today I just put the finishing touches on the desks. Here are some shots(from my phone because I forgot my camera!) of my classroom. I'm super excited to link up with Courtney at Swimming into Second. Enjoy! I have to thank pinterest and Jennifer Findley for all of the inspiration. Everything came together beautifully! Pictures are tagged with links to stores or pages where I found materials. Some are my own creation, but I haven't uploaded them anywhere yet. 

I'm super excited to meet the kiddos this year!! I could seriously live in this classroom. =)

So Excited!

I finally get to see my new room tomorrow! I am losing what little patience I have! Since I've been sitting around while other teachers in my district have been working in their classrooms, I decided to get all of my decorations prepped. I never do this stuff ahead of time, and thanks to Pinterest and TpT, I have had a blast! I'm so excited about my technology theme. I couldn't have done it without Jennifer Findley's bundle on TpT. She gave me so many ideas, and then I just took it from there. Here are a few pics of what's to come for my classroom.

This is just a small sample of what I've created for my new classroom. I am so ready to move my stuff in and see the end result. Tomorrow is going to ROCK!  Good luck to anyone else returning tomorrow!

Sneak a Peek at my TpT purchases!

So, I shopped til I dropped this weekend at TpT. I cleared about 20 items off my wishlist, and I got everything at a great price. I CANNOT WAIT TO GET BACK TO SCHOOL! Of course, my family will have to go without some essentials (groceries, maybe?) since I found so many great things. =) Here's a peek at some of the awesomeness I consumed. I got way too many things to list, so I'll just provide a few. I'm sure more will be in my future posts. Everything was so super cool!

First, I had to get my theme laid out for the new classroom (which I still can't get into) I LOVED the bundle I got from Jennifer. I loved it so much I got the same clip art as well, so I could make some additional things for my room. Pictures coming soon!

Next up,  was from Math and Science with TLC. I can't wait to use these in my room. These resources are helping to ease my anxiety about teaching math solo this year. I was feeling doomed without my partner, Lauren. She was the best. 

I snagged quite a bit from Jennifer. She is probably one of my favorite sellers. Here are a few things I grabbed. Of course, mostly math related. Her stuff is REALLY good. 

 I got my hands on a nice set of math centers, too. I think it will be a perfect addition to my workstations!

My last peek is at a first week math activity that I snagged from the ever-so-popular Runde's Room. I'm very excited to try this when the kiddos come in!. 


That's it for now. I'm so excited to link up with Blog Hoppin' for this super cool linky party!
