Hey Y'all. Sorry it's been a while!! I've been knee deep in back to school fun!!!
My classroom did not get the "perfect pinterest" set up I was looking for this year. At the end of last school year, I had to pack ALL of my things up. I was only able to move back in two days before teachers officially returned back to work. It made for an interesting week and half...of no cooking, barely eating, no laundry or house cleaning! So we've spent almost *ALL* day today getting our life back in order lol. I couldn't believe how outta control the house was! Not to mention, I have no clue what we've been eating because the fridge was quite bare. I hope I'm not the only teacher out there that the first week of school really takes a toll on!!!
Like I said, not Pinterest worthy but it's functional!!
We have a "Meet and Greet" before school starts and then "Open House" two weeks after school starts. I made these little Printable Signs and placed them in spray painted frames from the Dollar Tree. Click the picture to download your free copy!

I purchased the chevron bins from the Dollar Tree this summer. I wish I would have purchased more. When I bought them, I wasn't sure how I would use them so I only got a few.
I used my Chevron Library Labels to sort out my library. My library is organized by theme. This is where all of my extra money goes!! My husband hunts, I'm a book hoarder :)
This is my small group area. I left most of my bulletin boards blank this year. Last year, I ran out of room for anchor charts. This year, my goal is to have MORE anchor charts AND they will ALL be student created :) I plan to post about this later in the year :)
My favorite little spot in my classroom. My rock that says "I will Take Care Of You-God", My Gift from my kiddos, and my daddy. What more could a girl ask for?
On our first day back, our admin sent us on a little scavenger hunt. Such a blast. I was picked for "energetic". Naaah..not me ;)
Throughout my room, you will see these homemade banners I made. I used Teacher Created Resources Chevron Funtastic Letters on triangle colored paper. They turned out great and it was super cheap!!
That's the end of week one. Even though it was a short week, it felt like it was the longest one ever! Hopefully, next week will breeze by ;) Wishful thinking haha :)
