    Love your theme and your library! It is very organized too. I like how the groups of six desks appear like tables, and they take up less space too!

    And also, I love your windows with the trees in the background! :p

    Your classroom is perfect. I love the desks, the organization, the tree decorations around the room, and especially the giraffe.

    Your room is beautiful and very organized! It's obvious that you spent a lot of time and care in creating this atmosphere.

    Your room looks great. The kids are lucky to have such an organized and colorful classroom. I love the cubbies/lockers for the kids.

    Thanks everyone! I have worked really hard (especially with my mom - the artist!). She helped cover the computer chairs with fabric from hobby lobby. I am going to add some vines or a tree to my reading corner on the ceiling to carry my theme a little more towards that corner. I am also getting sheer lime green curtain for my giant windows. We are on the side that the sun shines right through and i don't want to close the ugly blinds!

    as soon as i finish my website, i'll show everyone that too!

    Your room is awesome! I used animals for years with a Noah's ark theme and last year attempted an underwater/ocean theme. Didn't do much with it. Your room makes me want to go back to animals!!
    What kind of shelf unit are your book bins on? Where did you get the zebra carpet? Do you change the tree in your calendar corner with the seasons? What color are your walls? In some photos they look a shade of yellew, others, they look green?
    Great job! I love the bright, cheerful feel your room has.

    The shelves are just built in, wood shelving. The zebra carpet was from a catolgue about 6 years ago before I went to college...everything in my dorm was zebra print. The tree stays the same...my mom helped put it up last year and it is still holding up!

    The walls are a very light tan color (wallpaper type covering).

    The sign that has my name was made by me :) I made it from broken glass, tons of junk and a cabinet door. It helps to have an art teacher for a mom.

    Thanks for all the kind words - it is really encouraging!

    Wow, great room! I really like your purple spotted reading chair and ottoman - neat!!

    Just out of curiousity, how long did it take you to set up? Did you have it all planned out ahead of time, or did you just make it up as you went along? Also, how many years have you been teaching? Do you switch themes every month/season or does it stay a jungle theme?

    Jeesh, that was a lot of questions. Sorry!!

    This will be my 2nd year teaching...so it is the same theme as last year. I am looping with my kids from 1st to 2nd. Next year I am planning on doing a whole robot theme, but we'll see.

    I had an idea of where everything was going to end up but I also kind of decided what to do as I went along. It took me about 2 days to get most of it done. I would like to spend one more day of full work (I get easily distracted at school) to finish it all and have it ready for the first day.

    I am also getting 2 gerbils next week! I am so excited to try a class pet. I had gerbils when I was younger, so we'll see how it turns out!

    Gerbils were my first class pets, also. Actually, the only class pets- I had them two years ago, and now only one is still alive. The kids really love interacting with them, and having them is completely worth every moment.

    I am going in to school Monday, so seeing your classroom really energized me. I honestly wish I had more furniture for my classroom library, but my "furniture" consists of cool pillows, a few milk crates covered to make a somewhat stylish "couch", a few wooden chairs with cushions spray-painted cobalt blue, my rocking chair, and a leather ottoman. I've been looking around for a cheap couch, though.
