2014 Classroom Reveal

So, after weeks of work that included a complete classroom decor makeover, I am FINALLY ready to reveal my classroom! BUT FIRST, a blast from the past--

Alright, here it is!!!! My 1st grade classroom for 2014-2015:

Welcome to my hallway! This is the brand new bulletin board right outside my classroom door.
The giant letters idea came from Doodle Bugs Teaching and I made them using my Silhouette Cameo. A worthy investment, in case you are interested.

View into my classroom from the hallway! (blue rug from Target)

Word Work containers that will be leveled/differentiated.

Sight word list mastery board

Book bags

 Outside door, reading/partner activity corner (rug from Sam's Club)

View from the outside door
