This is my front wall. Even though I have a woodland theme, I allowed myself one brights wall because I love brights so much :)
This is what you would see from the back of my room all the way to the front.
This is my left side of my board.
I am loving my today's date and table points vinyl headings.
Here is my compliment jar. When the students earn all their stars, they get some type of celebration.
If you look right by my door, you will see this display where my kids' work will be hung up.
If you've visited my blog before, you may remember last year's display board:
Right next to my white board, you will see my objectives board. We are required to have our objectives posted and I decided that as long as they have to be displayed, why not have them look cute? The headers can be found HERE and the Objectives were created by the talented Debbie at Croft's Classroom. You can find them HERE.
I love these lights from Party City!
When I want it nice and soothing, I turn my lights off and I let the front lights and my back lamps light the room. It's very calming (especially right after lunch recess.)
This is my side wall. I have my word wall up along my cabinets. I've never had this much storage in my life! It's amazing!
Zooming into my counter you will see my woodland themed teacher toolbox for this year. Next to it, I placed these owl lamps from Walmart.
Located right next to my toolbox is my little command center with my monthly bins, stapler, tape and paper trimmer. I decided this year that I was going to get rid of my filing cabinets and switch over to my monthly drawers and binders. I'm liking my BTS and EOY drawers! The labels for the drawers can be found HERE.
At the far side of the wall is my sink. I made this curtain to hide the pipes under there and this now provides a little bit of privacy for some clutter I have under there :) I also have my subject drawer bins here where I place my copies for each subject. These bins can be found HERE.
Here is a closer view of my bulletin board. I picked this wood grain paper to match the woodland theme and I added my green bows that I used last year.
This ottoman, turned tree stump, was a serious endeavor this summer. My mother-in-law was over to help me with it many days over the summer. I love sitting here and reading stories to my kids! They love sitting on it to share their writer's workshop stories as well! So comfy too!
Over on my tables I decided to use some supply caddies from Lakeshore. Next to my caddies are these little trash bins from the Dollar Tree that I decorated to look like mushrooms. They really help to cut down transition time!
Below is my library at the back of the room. My teaching partner also left me these gorgeous bookshelves! I think they totally complete my room with their warm woodsy feel! On my very first attempt at some kind of a theme, I had Alice in Wonderland cut outs in my classroom. Hence my blog name Learning in Wonderland. I had to have a touch of Alice somewhere in my room, so she is located here on the side of the library. (My Author of the Month heading is not up yet in this picture.)
On the other side of my library are my Ikea shelves where my buckets (also from Ikea) hold my read alouds for the first couple months and my math manipulatives. (My manipulatives are not organized in this picture by the way...)
Here is a view of my intervention table with my reading tree. The reading tree is a way that I track my student's reading through progress monitoring.
Another view of my intervention table. It's a whiteboard table too! So excited about the possibilities!! I made the little toad stool cushions this summer. The polkadot carpet is from Ikea.
This is a view of my whole classroom from my front door when you look to the left.
So that's my room for now! I know I'll be changing some of it as the year goes on, but I'm loving it so far! Want to check out more classrooms? Head over to Swimming Into Second and take a peek at everyone's classrooms and even link up your own!
