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.
** 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!
