I’ve been working in my room so I could write about this classroom reveal most of the summer! This room was previously used as a teacher workroom, the speech pathologists room, and an extra room for the paras to pull a few kids and work with them in small groups.
The past five years I have worked in the high school teaching art to grades 8-12, helping with credit recovery, teaching yearbook, and a miscellaneous assortment of other grades and subjects (elementary computers one year, 7th grade English one year, 8th-grade English another year). My resources for elementary subjects and classroom decor was gone. I had either given it away when I first moved to the high school or in stages the longer I was over there.
Now I’m back in the younger grades and I am starting over. Taking a room that is completely empty and overhauling it is a great time to do a classroom makeover. Are you ready for the major classroom reveal? If you didn’t see the before photos, there are in this post!
Building My Collection
I have been creating new resources, printing, laminating and cutting non-stop. There is a trail worn between my house and the school from the daily (sometimes multiple daily) trips I make to take something finished to my room and then bring the next project home. Teachers Pay Teachers is a great place to find resources for bulletins, handouts, centers, and more!!
If you haven’t browsed around there yet, I would recommend you check it out. I sell my own products there, but I have also purchased from a handful of fantastic sellers. Brag Tags and Classroom Economy for classroom management. Reading and Math bulletin posters and vocabulary cards as well as centers.
Bring on the 2016-17 school year!! I’m ready 🙂
Thanks for stopping by to see my classroom reveal.
