Classroom Tour 2012-2013

It's time for the reveal of the new classroom theme!
Chevron Floral Mix!
The goal was to modernize my existing colors while calming the environment and making it feel like a home.

Classroom Library

Meeting Place

Meeting place from the back of the room
 Standing at the door looking in

 From door (again)

 small group area and classroom library

 computer area

 computer area again
 

quiet phones 
(broken headphones that block out extra noise for those who need it)
     
                      left side of word wall with newly covered chevron ottoman                    
    
   teacher/small group area

 Closer view of the library 
(my mom covered all my pillows with the new fabric and made my curtains!!)



 I had planned to frame some corkboard myself and paint it black. 
 I found this framed corkboard at hobby lobby in the 50% off section!
It was cheaper to get it than make it myself!

 Back of the room from the door

Opposite wall of the classroom library 
Our Daily 5 book boxes will go above the cubbies
I usually put our anchor charts and units of study info on the blank wall. 
First up will be our beginning of school anchor charts.

 standing at the cubbies looking at the rest of the room

 Opposite wall of the library
 reference wall and backpack hooks

Back wall with new lamps on sale for $5! hooray!

  View from my teacher table at the back counter
I am sorry if some of these pictures got redundant!  I tried to get every angle around the room.

I am so excited about the makeover!  I was overwhelmed and unsure as it began, and with the help of my mom, it started to really take shape and look the way I had envisioned.

Thanks for being such inspiring teachers, friends, and colleagues!
I love looking into everyone's classrooms!

  137. This is a simply outstanding classroom set-up. I'm a high school teacher at an alternative school and I'd love to have such a calm, welcoming environment. Looking at your room it's like walking into a home - a living room. It's simply awesome. I congratulate you on your makeover. Minus the elementary school environment, I'd love to make my room so calming. I have lamps, a lava lamp, and a candle wax burner. Kids love it, but the walls need to be repainted and it's just so crowded and busy. Your room isn't like that. It looks roomy and all.

  156. At what age did the higher-ups determine children no longer learn well in this type of environment and should be switched to wood and metal desks lined up in a row? I am a new teacher and am trying - slowly - to make my room feel like home away from home.

    Great job...this is my goal!! Thanks for posting.

  157. I am in hte process of redecorating and reaarranging my room with the help of my room mother. She has been great. My colors are primary green (our school colors), Robins egg blue and brown. Your room is beautiful. I wish mine could be like that. We have no storage space in our rooms. Oh what I would give to have cabinets to store things out of sight. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  158. I am currently a stay at home mom, but taught for 8 years before this. I have a son with Sensory Processing Disorder and he struggles in a typically decorated classroom. He is overwhelmed by how busy EVERYTHING is. Your room is so soothing and perfect for a kid with his sensory issues. What a great place of learning you have created. Kudos to you and I will be stealing your decorating pallet when I go back into the classroom ;)

  159. The only thing I didn't see is where the students put their book bags. I am simply in awe of how warm and charming the room feels. Well done!

  160. I graduated 4 months after my first son was born. I had planned on teaching for a while before we had kids, but God showed us his plan :) After seeing your room, it makes me excited about teaching again! Maybe one day, God will put me back in the classroom, but for now I am content and happy that there are teachers who clearly still care about their kids!!! No one who didn't care, would put this much effort into their room.

  165. I agree....I could live in your room! The colors are beautiful. Did you paint it? I'm getting so inspired seeing everyone's rooms. Mine is so plain but that is how the school was when I came. We couldn't use bright colors or fancy borders. Everything had to be muted tones. I love your color scheme. Warm without being plain! It also makes me crazy that I have really no bulletin boards! My room is getting a makeover this summer!! THANKS for sharing!!
