Classroom Reveal

After a short blogging break, I am back to show you all my classroom!

Let me tell you, this first year teacher was EXHAUSTED after the first week of school! Simply teaching this week was tiring. Then throw in setting up my classroom from the ground up, the extra trainings that I went to last week and working a part-time job...yep...that all happened. It was SO nice getting time to just sit back and relax this long weekend.

My classroom is still a work in progress, but I am happy with how it is turning out so far! My whole school is broken into teams, and I am on the Bat team. That's why my room has bats and batman :) I went with a purple, lime green, and  teal theme and I love it!

  My word wall and crates for student work.

 I used bat cut outs to label my desks and found those purple and green dots that went perfectly with my theme!

 It's definitely a tight squeeze in my lil' old classroom!

I used teal and purple tape to hang up my Springboard posters above the cabinets.

 My "Ms. Paddy" section has all of my classes from student teaching. The kids love trying to find themselves in the photos.

 My mentor and his counterpart, Ms. Gates,  have these great light covers in their rooms. They came in to see my classroom and I told them how I NEEEED some because I was spoiled. A few hours later I came back to my classroom and Ms. Gates had left me hers. Seriously, so sweet! One of the nicest things anyone has done for me!

Thanks for taking the tour of my bat cave! I am so rested after this weekend and can't wait to get back to work. :)
