ROOM reveal

Camera Dump! Classroom Reveal 2013-2014 I'm linking up with my sweet friend Tara to show off my Monday Made It. I put together my room! Yay it's almost done. I'm also link up for Classroom Digs (classroom tours)  for Teacher Week.

I found this sweet idea from Tammy. Check out her post here
I think building relationships is so important in all grades. I'm going to invite my students to let me know what's the buzz in their life.
When a child wants to tell me something or just chat I'll have them write it on a little post-it. I will be sure to make some time to discuss their latest buzz!
I also made some What's the Buzz discussion cards so I can get to know my new little ones that are coming next week.







Overall view this year

Word Wall 

Buzzing through the years- class pictures from previous years
Love book covers that double as seat pockets. $1 at Target.

Word Wall and Bee Binder Storage Area

Synonym Daisies plus reading area

Reading area

Stop It and Drop It- Students drop off money, notes to the teacher, etc.

All of my bee souvenirs are located in the bee basket. I get tons of bee stuff from my sweet students. See that Monster High  BEE Doll? It was from a sweet student last year. The students LOVE it.

Reading Area- Books sorted by genre and AR


Working with Words Table that doubles as a Math Station during Math Block.
Yellow mailboxes where handmade by wood. They are so sturdy!

Technology! We supposedly have wifi now. I can't wait to try it out!

This will be my writing center. I still need to add some more writing resources and anchor charts.






Love this! Students file notes, homework, etc.

Hobby Lobby ... of course I used a 40% off coupon

Bees- idea from Sarah Cooley

Best pencil sharpeners EVER!

Really want a black one! They now have great colors.
Love hiding junk under the fabric!

This is the best idea EVER! Who started the teacher toolbox? I'm in LOVE.

Made this wreath last summer

Bee Binder Storage! Hoping these vinyl numbers last!


Making a mess! Wouldn't have it any other way.

How I organize my math centers. I also do READ for Reading Workshop
R-Reading to Self
E- E- Learning ( technology)
A- At your seat ( phonics)
D-Daily Writing



Darling BEE from a sweet family last year!

Ready to snip when I hear Fire Marshall is on campus. LOL


Love the labels from Quite a Pear
Caddies from Target last season

Wire baskets from Wal-Mart many years ago. They hold folders for table groups.


Scout benches. Hold up to 300lbs. I have some AR books that need labeling hidden in there!
I can order SCOUT products if interested.

Thanks for taking a peek at my room! Here is a quick 7 second video if you haven't seen it!
I can't wait to see everyone's room reveals. It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!
Happy Teaching!
