    Love it! :) Your room has such a cool flow...I'd love to have that reading nook!
    My room is pretty much done, but I won't post pics until much later, because my laminating isn't done, and won't be done until right before school.

    Thanks buck! I need to finish the bulletin boards on the far wall, put some random things away, and put up my word wall still. I'll repost when I get 100% done! :)

    Thanks! It was in my room when I took it over (my room was a storage/spare room last year). Finders keepers, loser weepers! :)

    They are permanently on the whiteboard. Every whiteboard in the building has the sentence lines. I like it. I just wish it didn't take up half of my whiteboard.

    I have decided two things:

    1. If I was a kid I would want to be in your class.
    2. I think you should take a mini- vacation to Ohio and help me set up my room!!!!!

    Thank you!!! That's so sweet! :)

    I'm such a profectionist about it, and sometimes I wish I wasn't. I changed the long, thin bulletin board by the library twice. It used to be the word wall and have different border. Now the word wall is on the little doors above their lockers.

    It is well worth it! You would have a heart attack if you walked into my room. I can visualize bulletin boards etc. I can NEVER make them look very good. My neighbor has a knack for this like you and her walls always look terrific and I always have the bland and boring walls. I know your kids will love it! Don't change a thing it looks great! Is that a tattle ear on your board? :lol: A cooperating teacher used one before. The kids looked so silly going up to talk to a giant fake ear.

    Random question....where did you get your trait posters? Because I LOVE them! Of course, I inherited a great trait BB but I decided not to use it because each trait was so akwardly shaped....they didn't flow well together on the wall! Sigh, I've become way to anal about my room this year. I liked how I had a week to just throw it together before new teacher orientation last year...I didn't have time to really think about! :)

    Yes! I love it! I got the idea from a conference I went to this spring. One of my students last year asked to go tell a tattle to the ear. I said OK. When she came back I asked if the ear gave her any advice. She said, "Yeah. It told me to let it go and move on." :lol:

    I got them at United Arts and Education last summer.'

    I have Beth Newingham's genre posters on the bulletin board next to the 6 Trait Writing posters.

    Hmmmm....I frequent United Arts a lot, and never saw anything like those. Oh well...I spent a few hours making some last night. I'll probably use those....I just typed up the ones I had, but they are all the same shape/size. So hopefully they'll look better on the wall! :) Your room really looks great! :)

    Here's mine. It's mostly finished. I still have to do a few "polishing up" things, but it's ready enough that I could have class and function in case I run short on time.

    Click the picture to see the slideshow. You can click pictures within the show to read more about the room.

    Beautiful room, Ima! I have a tank for the first time this year, too, and I'm super nervous. I'm not very good at consistency, and I'm worried I'll forget to add something or check the temp or something. Guess what's getting added to our job board....?

    Steal away . . . that's where I got it. :lol:

    If you decide to use the chili pepper letters from Trend, make sure you buy two packages . . . only one H per pack. That's why I'm missing a letter there. :rolleyes:

    Just spent day 2 in my room :) I went in at 7 and stayed until 5 :eek: It doesn't look like 10 hours of work, but I was copying, cutting letters, laminating (120 feet worth that I now have to cut :eek: ). Somehow, my room is now WAY messier!

    Anyway, here are my day 2 pictures (my room is getting less white!). I still have a math poster and 3 science posters to hang. I bought them after I laminated (which means I have to go back :( ) *sigh* still having blurry camera issues. And I have no idea why my book area picture is sideways!!
    Link to previous pictures is on the bottom.

    [​IMG]
    Freshly painted giant green bookshelf now full of stuff!

    Book area (I hate those wooden boards nailed to the wall there :mad:

    Side wall/math wall. BBs are my next project!

    Back wall w/science and writing.

    I love the library cMcD! Are those all bins from Target??

    I haven't finished my room yet, been too sick. I have some pictures of the room as I saw it for the first time though.

    giraffe your room is really coming together! :)

    Everyone's rooms look so warm and inviting. All of the new students have wonderfully caring teachers to be taking so much time to prepare these spaces just for them...
