Decorating my classroom

Yesterday, I took my mom into my classroom to show her around. I do have to admit, a big reason why I took her with me was to help me with my bulletin boards. She was a BIG help! There is NO way I could have done it without her. I don't know if anyone else has seen the big rolls of fadeless paper, but they aren't easy to maneuver while standing on a chair with a stapler in one hand and the roll in the other. I can only imagine what that would have looked like!
View of the metting area. I now have my calendar all set up and ready to go for morning calendar time. I love my new rug!
Close up of my Calendar and Weather Pocket Chart! I love this thing. It is so cute and has so many awesome pictures to put into the pockets for different holidays and occasions!
This is the bulletin board where I will display my classroom jobs. If you look closely, you will see the border has bugs reading books. I bought really cute bug cutouts at the store this weekend. I will write the kids names on them and put them up under the job title. I hope it is as cute as I think it will be!
My job bulletin board, my number line and my yellow bulletin board for "Who's here today" This will allow the kids to flip over a picture of themselves to show me they are at school. It will be an attendence taking tool! The other pocket chart is for the behavior punch cards. When they flip their picture, they will grab their card!
My ABC bulletin board. This has bugs on it too! I guess I am going to have a buggy room!

Hi Christy! I am so happy for you!! Your classroom looks bright and fresh and welcoming. Your kids are very lucky to have you as a teacher. I remember my first year of teaching- it was the hardest year and also the best year!! I loved my kids so so much, your first class will always have a special place in your heart. Have a wonderful year and have fun!!!
