A Peek Into My Classroom {with freebies!}

My classroom finally looks done!

Here are my new no sew curtains made from a queen size fitted sheet and ribbon.

How I'm going to track progress on Fry Words:

Where student work will go:

Whole Class Graphing
(blurry picture, but I will write the graphing question on the dry erase plate and label the columns. Students will put a magnet on the one of their choice and then we will count and compare.

This will tie in nicely with my morning messages. Most have a graphable question for each day.
Behind my kidney table (my hubby hung the Wal-Mart oil pan for me, I'm disappointed that it won't dry erase like a cookie sheet, but it is magnetic)

My new sensory table that will work in conjuction with my dry erase cart and bulletin board:

And now the freebies:
I'm trying achievement badges this year to take the place of prizes. When a student gets to wear one, they will wear it all day and even get to wear it home. I hope they all come back, but if not all I have to do is reprint and grab some yarn.

We repainted the bathrooms and needed a new sign to indicate boys and girls.
Just click on the picture to download these free from my store if you need new bathroom signs!
It is a relief to have this part done! Now onto planning and getting activities together for my kinders!
Leave a comment with your link if you have classroom pictures up already. I'd love to check them out!

  1. Your room looks awesome!! It looks so cheery and inviting. I haven't even been in yet... summer school took over my room so I'm scared to see what I'm going back to in August!

    1. Thank you! I think I would be scared to go in if they had summer school in my room! I hope everything was left like it should be!

    1. My friend found it on pinterest. What did we ever do before pinterest?! All you have to do is fold your fitted sheet in half over your curtain rod. Then you add your ribbon and your ribbon is what holds it up in the middle. Last I safety pinned a bow on the front. Super easy! Here is a link to the pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/101331060339134992/
