    Thanks. Finally, the link worked! I did get to work in my room last week a little. I'll post updated pics in a few weeks.

    I volunteered to move due to miscomunication. Our enrolment declined and I knew that one of the new teachers would have to go. I figured that since I was last to be hired, I would be the one to go. No one told me that I was okay. The other teacher was a temp. It was she who was supposed to go, but no one told me. So, one day I went to the principal and told him that I was interested in the 3rd grade position that was opening up. Instead of getting third, I was moved to 5th! Of all grades! He said that since I mentioned I was interested in moving up, that he would give me 5th since I student taught fifth. I still have no clue what I"m doing. That student teaching assignment was a long time ago. Oh, and the temp got rehired and got to stay in the kinder position.

    But, I like to think that certain things happen for a reason. So, maybe I'm supposed to be in 5th.

    We'll see. :D

    I feel the same way! I never thought I'd teach first grade, until I got more experience. But somehow I ended up here and it's been quite a ride! I've learned a lot and feel like I was meant to be here. The last year and a half were like teaching bootcamp!

    Thank you! I didn't post the picture of the other side of my room but the whole wall is filled with students writing. The only poster up in the room was by my morning meeting area. My favorite part of the room was their student names that they made. I had my aide stencil their names onto large manila tag paper. Then, one center was just to rip paper. Next day, they glued the ripped colored papers inside their name. Then, I outlined their name, cut the letters out and glued onto blue or green construction paper. THen, I hole punched the bottom of their name and tied a yarn with a wooded clothes pin. Whew!! It took a lot of work. Every month, I would hang up a art project. It looked really cute. You can kind of see one the names in the picture above.

    It's a brand new classroom!! When I came in last Monday they only had four walls, so at least now it has carpet and a white board!

    I HOPE IT WILL BE READY! I'M REALLY SCARED!

    It will be fun to compare a before/after picture. haha.

    This looks familiar, we built a new school this year, and we were supposed to move in, in the middle of the year, and the whole school looked like your picture! We ended up having to wait until the end of may, instead of the en of march, so everything was ready, but we were very nervous that things weren't going to be done! I pray that your class and school will not have this problem!

    I hear different things every day. So I have no idea. Sink area may not be ready until after school starts. They are going to come back during the year and put in more doors. Sounds like a yearlong project. Then once I finally get settled they'll probably send me to a new room. This is my third classroom at this school and this is going to by my second and a half year teaching!

    Mmm-hmm. :hugs: :wub: You know I'm just kidding with you.

    Her room truly is amazing. I wonder where her storage is and how she remains so organized.

    Her room seems so small and there is little storage, and no teacher desk. I wonder if she has a storage room, or an office somewhere else in the school? I want to email her and ask her secrets. haha

    I know. I have all kinds of colors in my room and it's nice, but I got this incredible feeling when I saw her "color scheme". My middle room is really organized, but nothing... nothing looks like her room. :) LOL.

    :wub: I have decided to be a clutter-less woman, yet it may not work too, too well. Maybe I'll just go to the dump!! :woot:

    I look at pictures of my room midyear last year and YUCK! Too much clutter! How did I get all this clutter in less than two years teaching?

    I do like her color scheme too. I also have lots of colors in my room.... but I'm thinking maybe with my walls this year I'll stick to like two different colors of bb paper. Hmmmm..

    I have been trying soooo hard to unclutter my room. Organizing my desk was the first step. Hoping once I get the rest of my room put away/organized- I can start on my file cabinets.

    I absolutely love your tables and chairs!!! I would love to have tables and chairs like that! I was supposed to get new chairs last year...and they got ordered a couple days before open house :( They rushed them...and when the arrived, they were so large that when I sat in them my feet dangled...needless to say 4th graders got new chairs!!! I had another set of desks in my classroom...but they were much much too large so I switched to these antiques that I'm using now! :rolleyes:

    I still have forgotten to take the camera to take a picture of my mess!
    Yesterday I went to work and a teacher desk and chair had appeared in my room. I didn't want the desk and the chair is GROSS. It looks dirty.

    Thanks Ellensmom! I love setting up my room at the beginning of the year. I can't focus on academics until my room is done.

    :)

    Zoe,

    I too, try to do too much in one day! And my classroom is ancient and "smells like wet dog". :( This forum gets me so excited and it is quite comforting to know other teachers get excited like I do! My husband does not understand my enthusiasm and passion when it comes to my classroom. :) Can't wait to see the pictures! :)

I FINALLY got to go in and look at my new classroom (first year teacher so I'm VERY excited!!) today and I took some pictures. I will be the 4th grade Reading teacher! If you have any ideas for anything please let me know..because I'm trying to find a place in my room for a reading corner and all of the "corners" are taken! :eek:hmy: Any suggestions would be helpful! :2up:
