    Yea, it's official! I got to get into my room today and started setting it up. My hubby came also to help with bigger stuff. He was a GOD SEND!!!!! :angel: :angel: He kept me sane when all I could do was walk in circles.:eek: Thanks to his great vision, we got the room set up and ready. He had to leave for a little while and when he came back, he had bought all kinds of different indoor plants for my room!!!! Oh how I love that man:love: Well anyway I just had to crow about my room and my hubby.

    I too went to my room to set up yesterday and spent the first hour just stressing over where to begin. The former teacher left so much junk laying around! And...she's just moved downstairs.....so, I asked the principal what to do with it. She said to stack it by the front and put a sign for the custodians to take it to her new room.
    Once that was out of the way, I was able to get the room going. I'm proud to say I got it 90% done!
    I would like to get indoor plants too. What kinds are the best for a hot classroom with little light? Jen, what kinds did your dh buy? (What a great guy!)

    Classroom Plants

    He bought a closet plant, diffembacia(?), and a rubber plant. Ivy is another good choice, I hear. I can not tell you how big a difference they made in my room. I think that was the single most important thing yesterday. My room has life to it now, not some drab classroom. Not to brag or anything, but, I think the kids will want to come to class because of the relaxing atmosphere.;)

    :love: Jenn

    How exciting!! I went to my class today and was met by the V.P who gave me my own room key!!! Holy Cow!! My very own room key… I felt like taking a picture with my key… Now my decorating skills are not that good because after I got done with my bulletin boards I took a step back to take a look at the board and it looks like a 1st grader put everything up… I think it looks pretty good for my first ever bulletin board…

    Great Plants: Philodendrom, Wondering Jew and Ivy are three great plants. I enjoy a Poinsettia to add holiday cheer at Christmas. Amaryllis bulb is fasinating plant. It grow 2 or 3 inches everyday. It will get about 36 inches tall and big beautiful blooms. You will need a towel stick to put in by the side of it so it doesn't fall over. It makes a super fun graphing project.

    I am so jealous! I want to see my school. I have no idea how many rooms are in it. I am guessing two classrooms and a multipurpose room.

    Gosh, I have been working on my room for weeks. The walls are done. The organization of all the stuff, stuff, and more stuff, is what's killing me.

    I really like spider plants and goose's foot.
    I stay away from ivy. It is finicky about watering..
