I discovered something about myself at the end of this school year, as summer vacation drew near (I'm on it now). I am one of those people. You know, the one that hasn't finished their school year and already is thinking about the next. My co-workers may have been disgusted with me and I'm ok with that. I used to think that too until this year.
What did I do to get ready for the 2015 school year?
To get ready, I made my own class schedule labels, organization labels, binder covers etc.
I am moving rooms. My stuff is packed up and in the corner of my new room which needs a major makeover. Dare I post pictures of what it looked like as the current teacher was packing up to move to my old room? #yesidare #hopeshedoesntreadthispost
That orange is coming off!
She doesn't have many bulletin boards, so I need to get creative with the walls and cabinets. That file cabinet is gone with her and I took my black one with me.
People. Do you see what I have to work with in this portable? I'm dreading going in, but I know the outcome will be worth it.
Yes, we are switching rooms and grades. I plan to go in sometime this summer (it'll most likely be in July as August is now all training days for me haha)
What theme did I go with? I went with a color scheme of black, white, and teal/turquoise. It's classic, will last a few years, and is good for 4th grade.
Pillows and mat for the entry. We're in a portable, so there will be mud. Plus I got a rug to fit in my library.
Fabric for the 1 bulletin board in the room (well, there might be 2). Binders for subjects, substitute, reading groups, etc. I actually need 2 more of each haha.
Then I created all sorts of labels and posters for everything.
Today, I have a freebie for you! I made some motivational posters to go with my theme, but for you, I made the background black so they go with pretty much anything!
