Hollywood Class Day 2

Hello everyone!!!

This weekend I was able to go into my room.  Yay!  I was so happy to be able to work on some of the chaos in there.
Saturday I was only able to be in there for about 3 hours because we were taking a trip to the zoo in the afternoon.  So I got to school at about 7 and left at 10.  I was on a mission this day because I knew that I didn't have long.  I was able to finish both my bulletin boards and add my writing board.  I really liked how they came out.
This is my writers board.  I love how everything pops on the red.  In the blank part I am going to add the samples of all the things they can do during writing center but I have to fix them to fit my theme.
** Since Angie and I posted pictures of our rooms, we've had TONS of inquiries on the posters and things you see on the Writing Center wall! I can't take credit for any of these fabulous resources, but I also won't leave you hanging! The Writer's Eye came from one of our favorite bloggers, Cara Caroll:
The "What do Writer's Write? pencil you see came from another one of our favorite bloggers, Lindsey, at The Teacher Wife: 
This is my word wall.  I still need to add the title on the top.  It will say "HOLLYWORD" but I didn't have enough time.  Remember I was on a time crunch!
This is my other board.  No you are not reading it wrong.  It is suppose to say Daily 5 but I lost the a somewhere and I didnt want to wait to put it up.  I am actually going to take the letters off and add a white background and then put the letters on so they can stand out a little more.  I will post the finished product later.  

So this is all I got accomplished on Saturday.  I was pretty proud of myself since I had to laminate, cut and put everything up.  

On Sunday I convinced the hubby to come to school and help me out.  Ok Ok I will be honest I kind of had a little bit of a meltdown.  I feel so overwhelmed sometimes trying to get the classroom done, the kids, and working on my masters.  I swear I was going crazy.  So I guess the hubby felt bad for me and decided to come help me.  

Here he is putting up my Alphabet Line.  I tried to get him to take a picture but he didn't want to and I wasn't going to get on his bad side as he was helping me out.  I love him!!!!
He also hung my sign above my library.  I am kind of in love with it.  I still need to add spotlights but I wanted to show you.  Our schools mascot is a superhero so thats why I went with the super readers.  

Well that was this weekends work.  I was pretty proud of what I got accomplished.  
I will go back this week and work on my reading group area.  So stay tuned for those pics.  

Oh by the way aren't you all obsessed with Angies classroom.  I am seriously obsessed with it. She is just too crafty.   Love ya, Angie!
