Teacher Week: Classroom Digs

Yeah yeah, I know I'm a day late..and probably a dollar short, but this week has been crazy! I've been in meetings from sun up to sun down since Monday and 7pm is the earliest I've been home in a while! I have my first kiddos coming tomorrow, so my classroom is finished..for the most part. I have a pile of stuff that is for Student Council that I am waiting on a file cabinet for, so it's in a corner of the back of the room for now. Hopefully I'll get a file cabinet tomorrow or Friday.

I know  I should have linked up to this linky yesterday, but I didn't want to take pictures before it was completed! Plus, I keep getting asked if it's ready or for here's the unveiling.

P.S. I know I'll add things as I acquire them throughout the year, but being a first year teacher, I can't fork out ALL my money for my classroom quite yet! It's hard to decide how decorated to make your classroom when you're a middle school teacher!

Well, this is the plant my mom and stepdad sent me for my first day of teaching! There was a dr. pepper right in the middle...buttttt that didn't last long.

This is the view from the doorway.

Another view from the doorway into my turn-in corner.

This is my bulletin board, for now. I'll probably change it and move the rules somewhere else so I can use this bulletin board for fun stuff. It's my only one so I have to be stingy with it!

That's my desk area! 

A closer view of my teacher area with my paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling. I look like I have a greenhouse growing in my classroom! I'm going to need a classroom helper to help me remind me to water them!

That's the outside of my door, minus the ladder. The janitor hadn't made it back to grab it and put it away from me! The office is across the hall from my room, so the ladies reccomended I cover the door with something otherwise my students will be focused on who is walking in and out of the I got some fabric from JoAnn's teacher appreciation days!

My pretty banner that has my name. It's just a bit to big to let it hang, so I had to tape it up there in the middle... I'm not sure how I feel about it. 

So that's all! Go and check out the rest of the linked up blogs for some more classrooms!

With love,


  1. I love your classroom! It is so fun and inviting, which are 2 words I'd never use to describe my middle school classrooms :)
    Good luck on your first day tomorrow - I'm sure you'll do great!
    PS I'm super jealous of your desk area - fridge and Apple computer?! Wow!!!

    The Fabulous Life of an Elementary Teacher

    1. Thanks! I try to make my classroom as fun as I can since I know most kiddos aren't excited about social studies! The fridge is actually mine from when I was in college, I figured it was sitting at home doing nothing so why not!? Andddd the Apple computer is fantastic, however it has Windows on it, so it's not really an apple. ;) Silly school!
