Cute Classroom Creations!

This week I have started to work on a lot of little things here and there for my classroom and honestly can say that I don’t feel that any of them are “finished”. Am I the only one who feels like this?
 

After my training on Monday, I stopped by my classroom to pick some things up. The pictures above is what I was greeted with despite not being how I left it. Yes, I got frustrated but had to tell myself to not let it phase me because it wasn’t going to change.

Then, I went up to my classroom on Thursday with my hubby and we spent 6 hours in the classroom! HOLY MOLY! My goal while I was there was to get SOMETHING done in the classroom. I didn’t care what it was, but at least something to be able to prove that I had been there.

I began working on my two shelves in the back of my classroom while hubby worked away on my Pom-Pom erasers on my dry erase markers. {We ran out of pom-poms since I have SO many markers!}

I was able to accomplish all of this organizing while I was there. It doesn’t look like much but after taking out 2 full boxes {18″ square} and 3 full commercial trash cans of trash, I am so happy with what I got done. The prior retiring teacher left a TON!

Before we left, hubby slanted my desk a bit in the back corner to truly have an area that is mine. I can now keep my colored paper behind my desk and won’t have kids coming and helping themselves. :)

Since we were at school, I had my secretary print off some things in color for me since she loves me. In the video below, I am sharing with you all of the things that I had printed and how I will use them. Links are below to all the goodies over at TpT! Make sure to check out my TpT shop as well!

Please take a moment to fill out the Google Doc so that I can start creating a list of great vocabulary to teach my 7th and 8th grade students this year.

    Love, love, love the table job labels! I only have the option of having groups of 6 so I’m thinking of perhaps adding a cheerleader (~need better name?) and time manager? How do you sort out while role each student will be? Passing them out, etc….I’ve used roles in game groups, etc. but not at tables – love! Happy to hear more details if you’re willing to share the nitty gritty! :-) p.s. I’d made the twitter sign too ~ going to have my students tweet 1x per period — I made a separate account for just my kids/updating parents. Ah, great minds! ;-)

      I’m so glad that you mentioned this. I pulled up the file and added on two new jobs as well as some blank labels for people to use. Hope this helps you out!

      I simply put them on the tables and since students never know when we will be doing group work, they don’t really “pre-pick” a seat based on that. I also don’t assign specific desks persay but rather, each student must sit at their assigned table.

      I created the @4mulafun account for use for all school stuff since I’m an avid scrapbooker and my @LiveTeachCreate is taken over by that. I did have it used a few times last year and I hope that the kids will continue to use it this year as well.

Leave some Love...
