    Very cool! At first I was going to ask about the black bulletin boards but I recalled you saying in another thread that you have a N.O. Saints theme. :)

    Too bad they wouldn't let you paint the inside of the door black or gold, eh? ;)

    I know, Ted! I did paint the door to my storage closet, lol! Unfortunately, each wing at our school has doors of a specific color, and ours is blue. I'd just love to have it repainted so it doesn't look so nasty!

    I love the black. It really gives the room a clean feel. Also love the toolbox for those little items.

    Thanks, ThirdGrade! I think it makes my room look bigger, and between that, the curtains, and the soft white paint on the columns/walls, it definitely looks cleaner!

    Ted - YIPPEE!!! I just got off the phone with my FANTASTIC P - she said to paint the door, and she would deal with whatever the district says about it!!! I'm just going to paint the inside, lol.

    That's awesome, Pwhatley! :) Please do take photos when it's done. I agree...that blue has seen better days. :p

    Seeing as you do the saints, you should do a brief history on the fleur de lis (that IS their symbol, right?) Or a variation of it?

    Yes, the fleur-de-lis is their symbol (and practically that of the entire state, lol). Third grade's Social Studies focus is Louisiana (history, geography, etc.), so I'm planning on incorporating as much as I can this year!

    Interesting...we don't study our state, California, until Grade 4.

    On what do you folks focus in Grade 4?

    New Pics!

    [​IMG]
    Per Ted's wonderful suggestion, I painted the inside of my door to look much cleaner & match my Saints decor! (Yes, got permission first, lol). I still need to paint the door frame.

    Check out my students' lockers! I still have a little touching up, but they are basically done:

    Whew! I'm pooped!

    The room is looking great!! The lockers turned out really well. I scrubbed on my nasty ones yesterday and thought about how much I'd love to pain them. How did you end up painting? (roller, brush, etc?)

    Oh, and just a correction - 4th grade does general US social studies (geography, regions, government, economics, and some history). 5th does straight US history. (I LOVE 4th grade, but covet 5th grade's social studies! lol Ours is just so random.)

    Of course, I love it! I told my children that I was positive that read about someone doing the Saints team. Love the gold lockers. We are definitely ready for "black and gold in the Superbowl."
