classroom pics and snack sheet

My room is slowly coming along. Thursday evening is meet the teacher and Monday students return, so I still have lots to do to get ready in a short amount of time. Here are just a few pictures of what I have been working on.

Labeling everything using my new fonts from Lettering Delights.

Making a ton of Kim Adsit inspired reading comprehension posters.

I am still missing border but this is how I show students birthdays. I put the kid popsicle sticks from Lakeshore in each bag. I have the child's name and birthdate on the stick and it pokes out of the bag. Before when my calendar had pockets I would put the birthday sticks in the correct pocket on the calendar.My kids always love pulling down a new bag at the start of the month to see who will be celebrating their birthday that month. I also keep a birthday sticker for each child in the bags.

I made a banner out of cupcake liners. It was super easy. Just grab some cupcake liners, ribbon, and a glue stick. My husband painted this amazing chalkboard in my room and I love it!

My new and improved science focus board inspired by Mrs. Jump. I made the scientist, he is still missing a hand and instruments.

You may not need this but I will share anyways. In my classroom the parents donate snack for the entire class for the whole week. It works well. On meet the teacher night parents sign up to bring snack for a week. Click below to download. I included one for kinder and first grade.

I love this snack sign up! Such a great idea! Thank you for sharing! Could I possibly get your help with something? I have tried to upload a document picture, like your snack worksheet, to my personal blog and have it linked to google docs, but I cannot figure out how to do it! I thought maybe I'd ask an expert like yourself If you have a minute, could you please reply to this comment and tell me how to do it? I'd be so grateful. Thank you!

After you upload your document in Google docs right click to save picture as. Go to share and change settings from private to public on web. When you do this you will get a link, copy the link. Upload the saved picture into your post and paste the link. You can also save pictures from PowerPoint. instead of saving as a pdf save a a jpeg image. Then you would still link that picture with the link you copied. Hope that makes sense.

Fantastic ideas! I forget birthdays and the little bags will be a perfect solution since the kids manage it.
