Busy Busy Day in my Classroom!

I was so excited to get into my classroom for the first time today that I woke up super early and couldn't fall back to sleep. I can not believe how much I got done today even with a broken toe. I was a little worried when I first got there because all my furniture was pushed to the front of the room and my tables (which are VERY heavy) were all up on their sides. I thought "Oh boy this is gonna be fun" But I guess the ibuprofen I took must have helped because I was able to get all my furniture in place and I was able to even get some of the decorating done too! I am going back tomorrow to try to finish up so I can enjoy the rest of this week.

Here are some pictures from today

Here is what it looked like when I walked in (AGGHHHHH!!)

See my tables were all like this! 

and all the rest of the furniture was all pushed to the front - I was expecting it but it was still a little overwhelming

I got to school at 8:30 and left at 2:15 this is how it looked when I left...
My door - I love it!!

another view of my door and my owl welcome banner
The view from the front door -all my decor is on the tables but at least all the furniture is in the right place now

One of my storage shelves and my puzzle cabinet - and and the bulletin board with the plastic tablecloth from the Dollar Tree! LOVE the ides for this- no paper!!

This is my reading rotation charts - not quite finished needed to laminate the pieces. 

My clip chart

My word wall! 

My group center area and my theme book shelf

My teaching area

Now for my absolute FAVORITE thing I did today!!! I put up my READ PLAY LEARN letters and some sticky wall decors and it came out SOOOOOO cute!!! Although a couple of my letters kept falling. I'm not sure what to use to keep them from falling. Any suggestions??

my reading area - right next to my housekeeping area

I am SO pleased with how this turned out - now if I can only keep the letters from falling off the wall. 
I am going back tomorrow to work some more and will post more pictures then!


  1. Your Read Play Learn wall is adorable! I am so impressed with all you got done today! It all looks awesome!

    1. Thank you Brenda! I couldn't believe how much I got done either. However, I am paying for it tonight, my broken toe is really throbbing, but it was totally worth it!

  2. OK Girl, now you're just making us all look bad. I need to go in and start arranging my room!! Goodbye summer. :(

    P.S. - your room looks great!

    1. LOL thanks! I can't believe summer is almost over. Bittersweet, I'm excited but want my summer vacay to last a little longer LOL

  3. You got a lot done for the first day back! I can't get into my room until July 30th. I'm so anxious to get it organized! Your room already looks inviting! I hope your toe feels better!

    1. Thanks Lisa, that's always my goal. I want my room to be inviting. I want it to look like a great place to learn :-) My toe is starting to feel better too :-) not as much pain this morning.

  4. Ok I'm glad I'm not the only waking up and not being able to sleep!!! Your room looks great!


    1. I did it again this morning Greg! I was up a little before 7:00, for the summer time that is unheard of for me LOL I thought for sure I'd sleep a little later today since I'm not as anxious but I guess not. As that old commercial goes I guess it is "time to make the donuts" LOL

  5. Wow you are superwoman! I can't believe you did all of that did a broken toe! I love you Read Play Learn sign...that is adorable :)
