Still working...

It's the never-ending job of setting up your classroom.  You work for hours on end, look around and think, "What have I done all day???".  Here's some updated pictures of some of the things I've been working on...

As you look around my room, you will see many inspirations!  As you already know, Pinterest is my new best friend.  As I set up my room, all I had to do was glance at my classroom board and was reminded of all the awesome things I wanted to do!  Two of my mini-projects so far came from
Clutter-Free Classroom


I used the clocks and numbers from Mrs. Lemons.  I have seen many pictures on CF Classroom that inspired me in little spots around the room.

These pictures were taken on Tuesday before we had our Open House.  In our district, the Open House is a chance for parents and students to tour the school and peek into the classroom.  Our doors are locked so that they cannot come in because the teachers are not present.  So I tried to get as much done as I could and make sure that everything looked tidy.

Since then, I've rearranged and changed my whole calendar area and worked on other small areas of the room.  I'm waiting for my husband to grab some 2x8's so I can have a few shelves for book storage as well as cut the plywood for my crate seats.  I also bought some supplies from Michael's, Target and Dollar Tree to make a few crafts.  I'll share as soon as I get them finished.

Do you have an open house?  How does it run?  Do you have a Back to School Night as well?  I love to hear how things run in other school districts!

I'm off to bed.  All this work is exhausting me!  The good news is I went to the dentist this morning and got a good report.  Even better news is I have an appointment for a hair cut tomorrow morning!  ♥
