Here is the view from the door to the classroom. I am in LOVE with the polka dot lanterns from Schoolgirl Style. It's no accident that the lanterns and supply boxes for each table coordinate.
Here are some additional views of my classroom. You'll notice lots of bright colors and polka dots (my two favorite things).
I used cardstock to create most of the bright materials on these bulletin boards, in the hopes that the cardstock will have better fade-resistance than the construction paper I have used in the past. These boards are all a work in progress - be sure to stop in again to see what these boards are all about!
The banner above my workspace is also from Schoolgirl Style and it is my absolute favorite detail in the classroom. I love how it is such a fun statement piece. It's also a great way to display my name as a reference for students when they write.
A glimpse at my personal workspaceSome homemade gifts, pictures of my parents' dog Hope (from her puppy days), inspirational words of encouragement, and picture of myself and my denim-loving students from last year, and a fun photo of some cute shoes!
I am so thankful to my good friend Steve Thompson for capturing the colors and fun of my classroom in these photos.
