Classroom Pics! :)

Well, my first week back was SUPER busy!! I can't believe that the students will be rolling in next week...aaaahhhhh! Luckily, we are staggering this year, so I think things will be pretty manageable.
Anyhow, here are the before and after pics of my classroom. You will see that I am not a huge fan of clutter, so things may look a little bare compared to some of the classroom pictures that you have seen lately.
Here are the before pics...
This is my whole group meeting area...look at that naked step. :(

Before view from front door.

Before view from back door.

Pretty blank & boring, huh?!

Here are the after pics...
After view from the front of the room.
Whole group area...no more naked step! It looks much better in red! :)


Writing Station
Computer Station

Another view of whole group area.

Reading Station- right beside whole group area

Listening Station- right in front of word wall & beside reading station.
Word Wall

Weird picture- I think I was trying to show the bulletin board color scheme...

These are my cabinets (duh!) They are to your left as you look into the room. I just love those zebra curtains that cover the open shelves. I hate looking at the clutter that is behind them! ;)

These are their mailboxes. They put their agendas & homework folders in them after unpacking in the morning. Ignore my purse & teacher bag..hee hee!

This is my teacher desk. You can see that the front of it is my magnet station & my pocket chart station is on the left. I have to keep my math tubs behind my desk because some of my students have "sticky fingers".

Job Chart. I will put their pics on a fat popsicle stick & then put it in the pocket for their job.

This is the back of my room. The poms hanging over the tables tell them what color group they are in.


Teacher Table~ pretty bare, huh?!
Chart Station~ look at that cute zebra curtain! :)

 Block Station~ They pull the tub out a little & then there is plenty of room to build.

Well, there you have it! I think that I love it so far! I can't wait to get the student's work up on the walls & bulletin boards so things won't look so bare!

How did you make your curtains for the cabinets? I have a similar situation in my classroom and need to make curtains ASAP!
