With the end of the school year coming to a close I have come to the realization that I never really got to make my classroom my own.  I took a position at my school late into the summer and had roughly 2 weeks to get my room ready.  I came into a classroom that still had 3 file cabinets full of files…YES THREE! I had a closet full of stuff that wasn’t mine and decorations that I didn’t love.  Well, five years later I have finally decided to lessen the clutter and create a classroom that I LOVE!

Here are some fun things I have been up to this month.  I have successfully cleaned out all of my files, created binders for each subject, professional development activity, and management tool, and have started cleaning out my classroom closet.  This is a summer job in itself.  I have downsized to only one file cabinet and I am so happy to see extra space (something I lack in my very small room). 

I am in LOVE with Kinder Craze and her classroom.  I have decided to do my room very similar to hers with the rainbow chalkboard look.  I love her silhouettes and bright colors with the clouds backgrounds.  Can someone say adorable?

I went on over to Kinder Crazes TPT Shop to grab these super cute rules chalkboard posters.  I LOVE these and I love that they are in frames.  I headed over to Michaels to see if I could snag any of those adorable frames, but of course they were nowhere to be seen.  I did however come across these beauties for $4 in a clearance area and they had all the colors I wanted, which equals NO SPRAY PAINT! Yes!

This picture is from Kinder Craze and if you click the image above you can grab these cute posters from her shop.

Here’s a look at what I tried to recreate today.  I love the bright frames and the price.  The frames were larger than the 8X10 print, so I found some cute rainbow chevron scrapbook paper to place behind them to make it work.  You will notice there are only 4 frames not five.  They only had 4 of the different colors so I had to make it work. 

I also ordered the chalkboard cut out from last night for under $5 and even scored so really cute tissue pom-poms to help with decorating bulletin boards for $1.99 each or two 6inch for $1.99.  I love

I am not a huge fan of Wal-Mart but they did have the cutest chevron mason jars and containers that I just had to put a twist on.  Check out my before and after pencil holders and birthday bucket to house my balloon treats.  The birthday bucket says, "Birthday Wishes." I made that cute cut out with my Cricut. 

I am pretty excited to see it come together in the end.  On a side note…my little bug turned two this weekend.  If I have been MIA this past week it was because I was stressing out about party plans and the fact that my little baby wasn’t really a baby anymore. UGH ; (

  1. Purchasing your advance online is the most likely the least expensive approach to take out auto fund. Auto advances are offered by the high road loan specialist and dealerships however verifiably these are normally anything other than the least expensive and the lion's share charge high financing costs. cash advance san-diego
