All because of ONE director’s chair which turned into three. Go figure.
There are a lot of pics. You’ve been warned.
Another warning: I took the pictures with my hubby’s fancy camera and, as I imported them to iPhoto, I realized each picture was crooked. This is either because the fancy camera is gigantic and I can’t hold it up properly, or it’s because carrying my heavy school bag on my left shoulder has made ME crooked. And yes, I do have one of those nerd carts, but I just don’t want to use it because I think my ten year old Kenneth Cole school bag is way cooler. Plus, it goes better with the Mini. And I don’t have to put the back seats down in order to transport it.
Half the time, I think I should just use the Mini as my rolling cart and pull it to class with a rope.
Let’s get on with it, shall we?

So much classroom envy right now!! Those cubbies were well worth the extra time because they look adorable. The flags, the director's chair, the ribbon details, I just can't get over it! Wonderful job on your room!!

Your room looks SO good! So bright and organized, I love it! I love the writing center too!! And the windows with the flowers… I could go on and on…
Mrs. Lindsey says
Your room is so bright and adorable!
Mrs. Brooks says
Oh, I love your lime and blue… it's like a breath of fresh air! 🙂 Adorable. I have to laugh about the hanging things… we are NOT allowed to have ANYTHING within 2 feet of the ceiling. Fire Marshal rules and our school gets mega fined if we break them. And you don't want to be the one breaking the Fire Marshal's rules and costing the district a bunch o money, right? Yeah. Me neither. So bummer on that. 🙂

Ahhh…..the infamous bear! lol!
Super cute room- I love your colors! I laughed when I spotted the "infamous" bear from across the room picture. I gave my bear away after your little picture issue- I don't think I could ever look at it the same. haha Have a great school year & keep the blogs rolling (I need the laughs). 🙂 Carol

I just love your room! The colors are my favorite so of course I am biased. I think the flowers in your windows are my favorite. They add such a cheery touch! Your bulletin board with Hadar's craftivity makes me queezy. The craft is adorable, but the number of kids you have is insane! So many firsties! First grade where I am has in the mid to high teens. Yikes! That bear just kills me! I will never be able to look at it the same way again! No bears on bulletin boards for me ever!

We have a similar color scheme. I love that lime rug in your library:)
I plan on doing a donor's choose project for stools in my classroom. I simply cannot afford it.

Looks like a lot of natural light! I love the color scheme. 😀
You Might Be a First Grader….
Mrs. Phillips says
Where did you get those adorable stools for your listening center?!? I MUST HAVE!
Susanna Westby says
Gorgeous, colorful and fun! I am with you regarding the hanging things. I'd never take down my huge butterflies, pompoms, rainbows, etc, etc,…love the way it looks and feels. Plus I'm almost as short as the kiddos so we navigate just fine under all that stuff. Tall people do have some issues…

Your room is adorable.
I think you *might* have a Fun Friday Chart obsession…. just maybe.
I LOVE the way you lined your cubbies.
I swear our schools were built by the same people. Our rooms are almost identical.
You classroom looks great! I love the blue and green, it is so calming 🙂 The kids will love it!
Three Cheers for First Grade!

Can I bribe you to make me a banner with my name on it???
Kindergarten: Holding Hands and Sticking Together says
LOVE YOUR COLORS and your room- and just every single post you post. Oh my gosh I actually did LOL when I read your comment about mama bear. SO funny. I don't blame you for taking down/putting up in the morning. Our fire inspector is tough… NO fabric at all. (cause apparently paper doesn't burn but fabric does). AND our janitors took everybody's glitter one year out of closets- because they didn't want us to use it. 🙁 REALLY SAD moment as you can imagine.
Kindergarten: Holding Hands and Sticking Together
I am completely enamored with your classroom library. I wish I had the space for that! The rug and little chairs make me want to do a jig. Everything looks fantastic.
@Carolyn… they look your glitter!? That, my friend, would be an act of war. WAR.

I am in the same boat with the hanging thing. I mean what the hello kitty do they think is going to happen with something hanging is going to spontaniously combust while we are teaching that great unit on FRACTIONS!! Oh my word this topic gets me fired up! Love your room and your hanging things. I am leaving mine up and playing dumb 🙂
Love your room! Bright and cheerful! 🙂
I love how bright and cheerful your room is! Where did you get your cubbie liner from? Mine are totally discusting and I can't stand it!
Dawn Bright says
I just love your cubbie name tags! Where can I get or make some like that?? The room is adorable – great job. 🙂
Dusty Drosche says
LOVE it! So much inspiration to steal/borrow! Have a great year!
Jeane Anderson says
I love your white curtains? Where did you find them?
Love, Love, Love your room. Our principal reminded us that the fire inspector only comes once a year. I think because he was told to take down some of his stuff that he didn't want to take down…he is kind-of looking the other way at the things we hove hanging from the ceiling.

Your room is adorable! Where did you get your cute window flowers?
