And the work begins...

I started working on getting my classroom unpacked and put together this week while my son was at football camp. I have found so many cute ideas on how to decorate and organize my room and can't wait to implement them.

So here is what my room looked like on Monday:

I wish I had taken a picture of my room, mainly the floor on the last day of school. My floors were in terrible shape from the kids moving around in the chairs. I got rid of desks and went to tables last year and the chairs wreaked havoc on my floors. So this year I bought used tennis balls (not the most attractive solution). My wonderful hubby helped me cut all the balls and put them on my chairs and tables. (Notice - the tables are in place, but there is still a huge mess).

My daughter decided to help me organize my books. She spread them all out and alphabetized them. Wish they would last that way more than the first week of school.

My goal is to have my room completely put together before we report back August 15 and still be able to enjoy the last part of my summer.

How is your room coming along?


  1. I found you on the blog hop! Great site. I love when I find a good upper elementary blog that I like! My classroom is organized, but I've been putting off the academics :/

    I'm your newest follower! I'd love it if you stopped by mine!


  2. Thanks for following me! I am like you, so excited when I find a blog with great ideas for my grade level. I can't start working on lesson plans unless my room is put together. Hoping to finish that this next week. I'll definitely stop by your blog and check it out!

  3. Hi Katie! Your room is looking great! My room is still in tornado mode...very scary!

    I am happy to be your newest follower. I am a Texas teacher too. =)

    I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance.
