Birthday Wall: Right next to our library are the tall, plain cabinets that had old tape and chipped paint on them. Last year, I tried to cover them the best I could with posters. But to achieve a cohesive look, I decided to use the Fadeless Weathered Wooden Paper again on the front doors and made it our Birthday Wall! Paired with a bright, white border, the cabinets are now functional and pretty!
Student Work Display Board: I’ve always wanted to have a student work display board, so I decided that I would do so this year to help motivate my writers to do their very best! Using wrapping paper from a local store along with a Oriental Trading’s black border, green, mint, and pink fans, and streamers, this board is now functional and gives my classroom a much needed splash of color!
Word Wall: This summer, I created my own jumbo letter signs for our Word Wall. The signs are big enough to be seen even across the classroom, but small enough to all fit on our dry-erase board. I can’t wait to fill it up with sight words and have my students use them throughout the year!
Classroom Motto: Since our classroom is an interior room with no walls, I struggled to find a display that would fill up this HUGE space and is meaningful to our class. I thought of making separate focus boards for each individual subject. However, the drawers and floor cabinets underneath of this big board, makes it troublesome for me to hang any anchor charts or posters. Therefore, this inspirational quote along with these easy-to-make flowers are perfect to brighten up our classroom!
Thank you so much for touring our classroom! I had a great time decorating our little space and making it organized and functional for my students! The items below are products from Oriental Trading! Click to the image for additional information.
