I know I missed the first Five for Friday of this school year last week, but I am excited to linking up with Doodle Bugs Five for Friday.
This has been quite the week!
I had the pleasure of helping my bestie set up some bulletin boards in her classroom on Monday. She is a kindergarten teacher in my old district. While I was there, I found out that I could get into my own classroom this week! Yay! :o)
The purple and green boards are two of the bulletin boards we completed. I love her bright colors!
Getting into my classroom on Tuesday was so exciting...until I started opening closet doors and seeing just how many goodies I had to go through and organize. The retiring teaching left behind some really great resources, but I am a bit OCD and I had to organize everything in my own way. Here are some before and afters.
I love the great storage space that I have in this classroom.
I was going to school on Wednesday to drop off my great new rugs. Of course that turned into a couple of hours of working on my classroom. Everything is still a work in progress, but here's the next round of photos.
Top Left: These are baskets to hold work for each day of the week. The clipboard on easel will hold my guided reading plans.
Top Right: Supply baskets in my great closet, labeled, of course!
Bottom Left: Classroom Jobs (more on this to come)
Center: Interactive whiteboard, I can statements, and 2 of the 3 rugs. I have always wanted a good whole-group meeting area and I finally have one! :o)

Yesterday, my bestie came to school with me help me out with my bulletin boards. I have one very large green chalkboard...I had the genius idea to cover this board with black contact paper. There is no way I could have done this on my own, so I am so grateful to my dear friend for all of her help!
I am so pleased with how everything is turning out!
