It's a new year, same old room, but new decor. To start the year off I made this frame to use on the first day. I actually took the kids pictures having them stand in front of an alphabet print fabric backdrop
I feel like I've been planning my room all summer long and it still isn't complete-but whose classroom ever is finished? I think mine is always in a "work-in-progress" state.
My library used to around my rug area. It bugged me that the kids would play with the books when they were supposed to be focussed on me. I decided to make my library a separate area in the classroom. So, I searched the internet for an inexpensive, fun rug. I found this black & white chevron rug at rugsusa.com. They had a 65% off coupon that day. It is huge (7'10" x 10"10") I actually have it running up the wall behind the book cases. It was only $88. Such a deal. It is busy... but I LOVE it.
peachsuite.com they were on sale for $1.99 each. I ordered 36 of these. It did take about 3 weeks and a few emails, but they arrived two days before school started. I had all my labels printed, laminated and waiting. A little hot glue to adhere them to the tubs and they were complete. I already had the R-E-A-D from last year but made the bunting banner this year. You can find that in my TpT store in red or black.
