Sneak Peek of my Room and Fan Freebie

I am trying desperately to soak up these last days of Summer Break, but they are just slipping away TOO.FAST.

I am stuck somewhere in this place where I feel like I am accomplishing so much in my classroom, but there is SO much more to do.  Every time I finish one job, I add five more jobs to my list! Luckily, I know most of you are in the same boat with me so at least we can feel like we are drowning together right???

I am linking up with my good buddies over at Blog Hoppin’ to show you some bits and pieces of my room!

I have had lots of requests for the labels below and sweet Krista said I could offer them as a Fan Freebie on my facebook page!  In order to do that, CLICK HEREphoto (39)

The Alphabet and Number Cards from below are part of my Class Black and White Pack!photo (41) The blend circle posters are from my Blend and Digraph Pack.  My new school has this amazing poster maker and I have already told my new team that I would take my Blend and Digraph Chart and make it into a large poster for their rooms! So exciting to play with new gadgets!

I had a slight panic attack when I realized that my new classroom only has ONE bulletin board, but then when I looked around the school at the way all the clever teachers had utilized their space I felt much better!

My reading area is not yet complete, BUT I think it is off to a great start!

  12. Katie,
    Like you, I have a bazillion cabinets and 1 bulletin board. I am wondering what you used to back your word wall? Is it just butcher paper? If so, how did you get it so incredibly straight? I'm horrible at getting things straight - border is my friend that covers up all of my crooked-ness!

    1. Deneice- I used scrapbook paper from Michaels. I am not going to lie- it wasn't a cheap purchse....but I will use these for several years. Could you laminate the butcher paper and see if it stays straight?

  13. Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends Window fans use little energy and can provide effective cooling in many climates. Window fans are best used in windows facing away from the prevailing wind and exhausting hot air from your home. To cool as much of your home as possible, tightly close windows near the fan and open windows in rooms far from the fan, preferably on the windward side of your home. Windows near cooler, shaded outdoor areas provide the best intake air. In multi-level houses, the fan should be located on the upper level, if possible, and the open windows should be located on a lower level. If that's not practical, you may want to independently ventilate each level of your home with separate fans.. Check it out thanks.

  14. Hi! I LOVE your number labels! I just tried to find them on facebook as a fan freebie and the only thing showing up is the vowel chart. Am I missing something?

    Thanks!
