I used this organizer from Target for my centers last year and loved it. I repainted it gray to go along with my color scheme. I found all the bins at Target. Can you believe those cute metal ones were in Target’s Dollar Spot?!?
This is my desk area. I purposefully left my desk out of the picture. It is a hot mess right now!
Everything pictured here is from Hobby Lobby except for the dice (hand me downs from my sister), small black and brown smile sign (Target), and the Good Vibes Only sign (Linen and Lace Shop).
I don’t know about you, but curtains in a classroom drive me nuts! They get so disgusting with dust! This year I decided to not use curtains and go with something different. I found these tassel garlands at Hobby Lobby for half off and of course had to get.
Next up is my rug. I originally bought a flower one and ended up taking it back for something that could handle dirt a little better. This is actually an inside outside rug – they are much easier to clean!
If you already own these or have some coming your way, you can download the number tags here.
I changed out several of my posters to match my color scheme. You can download all of these here.
We have two white boards in our room, and every year I always go a little crazy trying to figure out how to make the extra one useful. It is too high for most of my kiddos to reach so it can’t display anything that is too interactive. I decided to put my math word wall on it this year so that the math vocabulary is visible to everyone from any spot in the room. You can read more about how we use our math word wall here.
Here is our classroom birthday banner. I will just write the kiddos names and actual birth date on the clips. You can download this one here and the one I used last year here.
…and lastly, two bulletin boards that are outside of my room.
This one is right outside my door. I will display student work on it. I plan to change out the words on the chalkboard to go along with whatever is displayed. You can download the Welcome Back banner here.
This bulletin board is in our grade level workroom. Choose Joy is one of my absolute favorite verses from the Bible and is something I constantly remind myself to do not matter what the circumstances are.

Andy Grammer Something about kids singing “Don’t Give Up On Me” hit me right in the damn chest. Either I’m an over dramatic emotional artist or this just is as stupid powerful as it felt. Thanks for letting me join you Gregg Breinberg (PS22 Chorus Director) ... See MoreSee Less
