For those who don't teach, I thought I'd give a wrap up of setting up a classroom.  Here is my room after sorting out all the items that were NOT mine:

This tree was given to me by Adrian.  He is an amazing artist!
Dad came by to help.  I had him put the crayons and markers in bins for me.
Mom was kind enough to come over and take out the HUNDREDS (no, I am not exaggerating) staples left in the walls by the prior teacher(s).
Whew.  Now it's starting to look like a classroom!
Had to take a lunch break, right?
Our school's AC isn't quite up to par yet from the summer.  It's very hot in the classrooms, hence the multiple drinks.

Calendar/lunch choice board (border was given to me by Jill Hildwine years ago and I still use it!)

Student of the week board!  
Bulletin board in the hallway.  Going to add pics once the students start!

Birthday board!
Cursive alphabet

Job board

Pretty much the only thing "educational" up so far, besides the alphabet :)


  1. Nicely done!! Kids are going to LOVE you. Have I mentioned they are the BEST group of kids ever? I had some of them twice. Here's to a great new year!(And the staple removal is ridiculous! How did THAT happen?)
