Super Classroom: 2016-2017

Hey yall!

I'm not sure about you, but we are officially back in the swing of things at school. This is week 3 and we are FINALLY ready to dig into some meaningful learning! Every year, I forget how difficult it is to set those routines and expectations. I wonder just why don't they get it! 

But then, after 2 full weeks of practicing, practicing, practicing, we were ready to finally start some station/small group work today. And let me tell you....these kids blew me away!!!
My teacher heart was just bursting with pride with how well they did today. 
Seriously, you guys!

Since we are finally in the swing of things, I figured it's time to show you are space!
Last year, the whole 3rd grade team decided to go with a superhero theme. Since I have a huge navy wall and red cabinets, my choice was of course....Superman!

So here it is, my Superman themed classroom:

Room 112. The "Welcome" banner can be found in my Superheroes pack.

Superman sign from Hobby Lobby.

This area houses our sink, tissues, hand sanitizer, clipboards, crayons, pencil sharpener, turn-in basket, and extra copies.

Classroom jobs can be found in my Superheroes pack.
"I Am Done!" sign from First Grade Fancy


Our writing board, reading buddies, standing table, and station cart.

The station cart holds all of our stations. The basket on top is housed with dry erase markers, erasers, and cleaner

This is where we house extra supplies.

I snagged these headphones from WalMart...only $7 a piece, yall!

Our Kindle station and chapter book library. We currently have 6 Kindles...I would like at least 4 more!

Our computer station. They are old and don't always work...fingers crossed for new computers this year!
We are the lions, so ROAR is our school motto.

Our picture book and audio book library.

Yes, I put a couch in my classroom! I bought new couches for my home this Spring, and I had this love seat just taking up space in my office. I figured it would get much more use here at school. And...I was right!

Our small group table. The bulletin boards will hold anchor charts and vocabulary cards.

Love my vinyl! But thinking I need to add a little Superman above the words...

My desk area

Love my little space!

My desk wouldn't be complete without a pic of my beloved late husband.
And I absolutely LOVE this quote from Deanna!

This houses my Elmo, printer, other important papers, and of course, pictures of some previous classes.

 These it is, folks! My little slice of heaven for the year.
All of those superhero words you see hanging around the room are from Oriental Trading.
I have a few more finishing touches to add here and there, but overall I am loving our space!

Happy school year, friends!
