The Room part 2...

I am not nearly done just yet!  I still have some banners to hang from the ceiling and my door to decorate.  I can't put that up until our Open House, which happens the prior to the start of school, because we have kids and parents that sometimes roam the halls trying to figure out which teacher they have and it all has to remain a huge secret.  I'm really not sure why.  I'd love to be able to send a "Welcome to Second Grade" postcard before the school year begins...but no, it's all "Hush Hush" around here. So basically anything that has a student's name on it will remain in hiding.

I am very sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, but I just can seem to take a good one!  I think I need to invest in a better camera.  Especially if I'm planning on posting pictures of all the things we do throughout the school year...

So here is my room so far.... I'll post more as I complete projects!

I really can't wait to get back into the swing of things.  It will be here before I know it!  I wish everyone a great school year!

Label Freebies

I know I haven't posted classroom pictures just yet.  I need to go back with a real camera and take more photos. The ones I took with my phone camera were just terrible!  So to make up for it I am posting some folder labels for free.  I set them up to print on Avery 5160's.  However, I alway print my labels on the "shipping label" paper because no matter how hard I try to get things just right... I always manage to lose about a third of my labels due to them not lining up! ARRGH! Does that ever happen to you?  I know that cutting them out can be a pain, but I'd rather not let any go to waste. So anyhoo, click {HERE} to download them and have a wonderful, fantastic Saturday!

The line I have above the text on the label is where I write student names.

The Room...

I've been working away at getting things organized in my room.  I wasn't going to post about it until I had  it all ready, so all I have are the before pics for now.

I have all the furniture in place, except for the desks, and my bulletin boards have paper on them...that is about it.  I'm going in again next week, as many days as it will take, so I am hoping to have DONE pictures by Friday.  In the meantime, I have been busy getting lessons ready and making classroom decorations for friends.
I just finished up this classroom set in time for back to school.  It is so much fun to create things, and this time around I thought I do a little ode to my blog. Tell me what you think!

Well I am off to watch some more Olympics! Go U.S.A.!
