Classroom Reveal!

Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to share my classroom with you! This is my third year with my sweet shoppe theme. However, it's my fourth time setting it up (I got moved on the fourth day of school one year)... And it's the third school with it too. So, I'm not sure if my sweet shoppe is very lucky considering how much I've moved classrooms with it (this last time by choice thankfully), but needless to say... It's easy to move and I love it regardless.

I'm linking up with these lovely ladies, Ashley from Schroeder Shenanigans In 2nd and Angie from Lucky Little Learners for my classroom reveal and their #2getherwearebetter series. Because let's face it, as educators, we are better together!

I also get to link up with the lovely ladies of Bloghoppin for their classroom reveal linky party as well. Woohoo!

Here's the view of my room from my teacher desk area. This was taken on the first day of school... Note how clean it is. 

This was taken today (from the other side of the room). Note how not clean it is.

Here's my favorite part of my room! This is my first time ever having a SmartBoard. I've had so much fun figuring it out too. It's like a whole new world!
(Inflatable donut & outdoor string lights are from Five Below, candy garland is from the party section at Hobby Lobby, Word Wall cards can be found here and color posters can be found here.)

Here's the beginning of our writing board:
(Cupcake fabric from Joanne's, writing anchor charts from A Year of Many Firsts. The candy in the top right corner is a paper plate wrapped in tissue paper. 

This is the first year that I've done center rotations (rather than Daily 5) and I am absolutely loving it! I created some center rotation cards to help me and the kids stay organized. It's helped us a lot and plus, it's no work for me. My little leaders come in in the morning and rotate everyone down to the next center. It's wonderful.

You can find these editable name cards here

Another favorite part of our room! Our classroom library! Insert all the heart-eyed emoticons here! The colors, the labels, the stickers on each book. Oh my word, I'm in heaven with our new labels. I just can't get enough of them. Not to mention my kids actually put books back... In the right spot. I do nothing to keep my library organized. It's all in my little six year olds' hands. I just can't believe it sometimes, but I love it. Find them here

Classroom Leadership Roles can be found here! They are right by our door so that the kids can see them everyday. 

 A close-up of our daily schedule! You can find these editable cards here

 A little look at the whiteboard area of our room. I love the after pictures of classrooms so much more than the before. I feel like this shows the real life to my classroom. The kid writing, kid work, anchor charts, etc. This is our calendar area. Please pay no attention to the two broken boom boxes sitting on the floor. I seriously don't know why I have them sitting there still.
 This picture was taken before school started. The board is very, very full of love right now. The counting grid is from Really Good Stuff found here

My Word Wall! Totally in love with this as we get more words on there! Can you believe I found that Target lamp for just $8 at a garage sale? Can you believe that it has a crack in it that I didn't notice when I bought it? Psh. I digress. You may notice all these random desks placed around my room. This are for my centers. My long term plan is to buy some tables from IKEA, but August broke me (like it breaks all of you) and so desks will do! I had 5 extra desks and so therefore, they are center desks!

Last, but not least... Here's my post to show that I'm a real teacher. I hope we all have an area like this... An area of just straight up embarrassment. What on earth is this? I call this little corner in my classroom the black hole. This is where things get pushed to be forgotten about... Like that sad little broken chair, my mailboxes which have barely been used this year, and those sad little manipulatives that need to be given a home. Don't even get me started on that poor, poor bookshelf. Le sigh. This is real life, people. 

And, that's it! I hope you enjoyed my little slice of heaven!
