I have a little announcement to make. Tomorrow I will no longer be sharing the adventures of a third grade teacher. Tomorrow will be my first day teaching fourth grade! I am so stoked. I have loved teaching fourth grade for the past four years, but I am so excited for a change. Since I'm changing grade levels, this blog is going to have a name change! I might even be planning a giveaway for the announcement! :)
So here is a look into my brand new fourth grade classroom! Even looking at these pictures I realized there are still a few things I need to do! It's a never ending job ladies and gentlemen. Switching grade levels, changing rooms and a love of summer make me feel a little less prepared than I would like to be, but I'm still in love with my room!
The View from the front of my room. I have 26 students! AHHH!
I'll be teaching NC History, so this is my NC History Board
Class Rules and Calendar. The How Do We Get Home Chart and broom is hidden behind the door when it's open.
Adorable name tags from Hope King's Pack. You'll be seeing several things from her Patterns Chalkboard Decor Pack!
A place for anchor charts to hang.
Numbered Hooks for Bookbags
Didn't my mom make me the most awesome curtains ever??
Word Wall on the cabinets!
View from the back of the classroom. Ladybug Teacher Files adorable alphabet and Motivational Sayings from Miss Nelson are above the board.
I'll be hanging the I can Statements from the ribbon.
A place to hang student work. I just laminated stationary paper and hot glued a clothespin.
My favorite. My classroom library! These are all my fiction books. Love the IKEA rug and Lamp from Dollar General!
Here are my nonfiction books. Love the Really Good Stuff Baskets in lime green and purple.
Genre Subway Art. I LOVE These!
Individual Student Boxes from RGS. They aren't labeled yet, because I wanted to let the kiddos choose what color they wanted.
Small Group Table with IKEA seats. Also, do you see that little white table back there with the black basket on top? It is the most adorable chevron table...see this is the top....
My mom found this for me. ADORABLE.
It's a little dark but I made this pennant with scrapbook paper that I laminated. I put it together with chevron duct tape. It's not in my other pictures because it fell down about 20 minutes before Meet The Teacher! I need to hot glue it back up after school this week! :)
Cute Scholastic Posters!
I still love my little blue chair and painted stool from last year!
I made these today to add to the front of my tables. Sadly, we can't hang from the ceiling!
I'm going to give these to the kids at the end of the day tomorrow. Normally I make a little treat like this for orientation. But.....the night before we had orientation I went to see the Backstreet Boys with my BFF Elisabeth and the treats didn't get done!
Be sure to go check out some other awesome classrooms!
So tomorrow is the big day. I have ten of the same students from last year and I am so excited to be teaching them again, as well as 16 brand new students! It was so fun to see soooo many familiar faces at Orientation.
