Throwback Thursday

         Since school is just around the corner, I am linking up with Throwback Thursday for Freebielicious, to share about my classroom set up from last year.  I haven't been able to get back in my classroom yet, but for those of you already setting up, maybe this will give you a few ideas!

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

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. I'm teaching third this fall, and I'll be dusting off my cursive alphabet which I haven't needed for the last 8 years of K, 1, and 2. Teaching handwriting is actually not even in our curriculum here any more, but I think it's a must-do. But you're right; keyboarding is now way more crucial.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Debbie! Good luck this year in third! I'd love to hear your ideas throughout the year.
