It's About Time!

September 3 was the first day back for my students. I finished the room late Monday. Well, almost had it finished. I think there are a few things left to do still. I finally picked up my Glofish for my aquarium.

The new principal is forcing our staff to post the lesson plans online. I have been posting them for awhile, so I am considered one of the experts to go to for help. That contributed to my finishing my room at the last minute. I took some time this morning to revamp and update my webpage. I wish I could just make it a blog, but the Super wanted some uniformity, now it doesn't seem so important to the tech department, so I may revamp again. I have learned ways to customize the other system, but it isn't unique like I want it.

My neon rainbow room is unique to my grade level and the school. Without further ado...onto my pictures. There are many!

Love my Reading Poster from Creekside Teacher Tales

My room is bright with lots of color. I love it. I will be posting a little more regularly, now that my technology issues are almost resolved and I am settling into a routine. Have a great week, I know I will.


  1. I love your colorful and very organized classroom. I've got the color...and I'm working on the organization part!

    1. Thanks for the compliment. It can never be organized enough for me. I hope I can keep it up. With another teacher, a full time one-on-one aide, and fifty-three children sharing this space, everything must have a place. I still need to help the students know where everything goes, so they can maintain the space. Hope your year is off to a great start.

  2. Your classroom looks wonderful! Love the neon colors! Wish mine was as organized as yours is! I consider myself an organization queen but I've got nothing on you! :-)

  3. Huge library. How are your baskets labeled. By genre, level, author? I am struggling with my library. Right now mine is alphabetical by author, just shelved. It was all I could do this year as I incorporated two retiring teacher's libraries into mine. A HUGE gift but . . . need ideas.

  4. Your classroom looks beautiful! I love your frames for stellar work and bucket fillers! So happy to have found your site as a great resource! I've also been using this site as a resource: Teacher Clipart Borders
