Another Classroom Update & Behavior Chart

I promise I will get back to the whole brainer posts soon! However, I worked all day on organizing my room and am excited to show it off...

I still haven't really been able to start "decorating" because everything needs to be organized first, but it's starting to look like a classroom.

I am still avoiding sorting through and organizing all the books though because it is going to be quite the process...

Alrighty, I'll stop blabbing and reveal the updates...

Alright so these are the shelves from the previously very unorganized closet area. The picture on the right shows the now pretty organized math manipulatives and literacy games. The picture on the right definitely may change, but currently there is nowhere else big enough to hold long construction paper and sentence strips. I don't really want to invest in big draw bins, but I may do that. Currently the paper is in hanging folders so I can easily grab one color at a time. I have cute curtains from last year that somehow will fit perfectly (I checked) just have to get a tension rod, hopefully they make one long enough to fit!

The picture on the left shows my now beloved art closet. It turns out there were tons of art supplies in the closet, but they needed to be organized (and there was plenty of other "stuff" to be thrown away). This closet now has very organized art supplies! On the right, I am so excited that I got to use my sparkly curtain somewhere. I am hoping it will discourage students to use the exit near my desk after they hang their coats and backpacks and encourage them to use the other opening.

The picture on the left is the fabulous book shelf behind my desk that is the perfect size for all my teacher manuals, curriculum binders, etc. On the right is a future post in the making. This is part of my new revamped behavior management system. I will post about it soon! But in the meantime, check out the "polka dots & sweets" behavior management clip chart from my TPT store by clicking the image below. It's only $1 and I will happily make you your own that fits your theme or has different words/color theme if you ask :)


Okay, a few more classroom pics...
On the left.. the BEST purchase I've made for my classroom! $28 at Big Lots... I saw a similar one (different colors) at Michael's for $50 which was too much for me, $28 I could handle, thank you Big Lots! On the right, the best piece of furniture found in my room! Love that this fits perfectly near the coat closet and can be used for the kiddos mailboxes. Plan on dressing it up with cute little polka dotty or striped numbers.

Last pictures...

On the left, another good find in the room (still in the box) put it together then didn't know what to use it for and it dawned on me how wonderfully organized my small construction paper could be with it! On the right, my room is looking like a classroom... the most important part of my room (learning circle) is looking like a learning circle, yay!

Alrighty, hopefully I can refrain from posting pictures until the room starts looking cutsie and like a classroom :)
