Classroom Reveal { Whooo's Ready for School? }

Sunday, August 11, 2013
I have been so busy getting my classroom ready and I get soo giddy like the rest of you I'm sure.  I always tell my hubby that Back to School Night is like the prom for teachers...ok well maybe not.  But, it takes a lot of prep and you get all nervous and want to look good...etc.
Here are my owl themed classroom pics.

My sweet mom in law reupholstered my rocking chair cushions, a kid chair and made me darling owl chair pockets....HELLO!!!!  How great is she?!?!?
For my instagram followers...remember those glitter tape clothespins?!?!  Here they are in action, I will hang their work from them ~ easy peasy!!!
I don't care for 'jobs' so I pick a helper of the day and they pick 1 friend...It's so simple and all I have to do is move the pencil to the next holder.
Owl nameplates waiting for some names to be put on before Wednesday!!!!
My owl table numbers hot glued to a tissue accordion from party city.
If you like my owl things you can purchase my Owl Themed back to school pack { here }
My class library...I made those READ letters in the summer if you want to read about how to do that click { here }
This is where I will be putting 6 laptops that I just found out I'm getting for FREE from a friend of my dad's HOLLA!!!!!!  It will already come with downloaded 1st/2nd grade software.  God is good!!!
I always put something like this out on the first day...some people don't make it out to Back To School Night and I'm always amazed at how many parents come in on the first day and grab some of these to donate to the classroom.  I'll take the help anywhere I can get it. :o)
My chevron desk...I just need to add my Erin Cronden planner which is at home and I'm all set.
I sewed this cute banner up real quick...don't get too excited I'm sooo not a seamstress but this was soo easy!

My class is kinda on the girly friend told me I had a 'girl' classroom so does that mean I get all the girls?!?!  I like it and since it' s my home away from home I'm sure I can get the boys to love it too.  I can't wait to see what your rooms look like.  Welcome back friends!!!
