Five for Saturday...Room Reveal, Back to School and more!

      I survived!  I just finished my first week back at school for the 2014-2015 school year.  Monday we had Meet the Teacher Night, Tuesday was all day meetings, and Wednesday was our first day with our kiddos!  What a busy week! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching (a day late) to show you a few pictures, ok maybe a lot of pictures from my week! 

1. Since Monday we had Meet the Teacher Night, I decided to start with some pictures of my classroom.  If you follow my Facebook page, you have already had a sneak peak!

2. This is my first year ever starting the year with a critter in my room.  One of our new teachers was able to get free caterpillars and eggs, so we are starting our nonfiction/life cycles integrated unit super soon.

3. How cute are these kiddos?!  Loved having the first day of school frame!

4. When I was in school, we learned cursive in second grade.  Our kiddos learn it in third grade.  They are SUPER excited to get started and then after a while the interest fades!  Do you have to teach cursive?  Our ultimate goal is that they can sign their name, however, I still feel that teaching typing would be even a greater benefit with today's technology.

5. I had to close the blinds to because it was so sunny, but I LOVE our little banner.  We did this last year for the first time.  The kids complete, for homework, an all about me banner after the first day of school.  I found this on TpT last year, so if it is yours, let me know and I will give you credit!! :)

Have you started school yet?  If not, enjoy those last few days!  Those that already started, I hope you are already having a great year!


  1. Your room is so inviting and looks like a great place for lots of learning and fun to take place!

  2. Your room looks fabulous! I love the color combinations and brightness. The last year I taught third grade I took a picture frame photo every month. I just changed the border and added seasonal decor. At the end of the year I created a digital scrapbook for each students and included the monthly photos!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  3. I am obsessed with those black bookcases - they really make the bright colors of your book bins pop! Congrats on making it through your first week :)
