I have a little less than 3 weeks before teacher work days begin. I have purchased and made almost everything I want for new school year.
I am slowly getting my classroom bulletin boards ready for the new school year. This is my first completed one. What do you think?
I will be taking pictures of my students wearing a cowboy hat and bandana and placing it on the wanted job posters. I am going to use the sepia setting so that it will stay with the theme.
I have a long way to go, but when I finally finish my classroom I will post a room tour.
Here are the three borders I am using throughout my room. I purchased the borders from Scholastic and Mardel’s:
These are the other things I purchased from Mardel’s. I am jealous of those of you who live close enough to visit their store. I have only made online purchases.
Did you notice… my classroom will have a Western theme?
I purchased this pocket chart from Walmart for $12.97. I was surprised to see this in the store. It is well made and has 27 paper slots. I saw them in red, blue, and black. I know a lot of teachers use it for students’ mail, but I plan to place graphic organizers, reading response sheets, and other forms that students will need on a regular basis in it. This way they have access to them without needing my help. I can also clearly see when more copies are needed.
I purchased these two pocket charts from Target. If I remember correctly they were $3.00 each. The first one shows the folders that I will be using in them. The second one shows the folders that come with the pocket chart.
I purchased new library book baskets for my room, too. They came from Michael’s. They were pricey but I won’t have to purchase new baskets again. They come in 3 sizes and I purchased the medium and large ones.
Both baskets hold a great number of books. The smaller baskets will hold my series and author study books. The larger baskets hold books by genre and all of my nonfiction books. I will do a post on my new library in a couple of weeks.
I have two items, genre posters and calendar pieces, in my TPT store that I made for my western theme. You can pick them up by clicking on the pictures below:
Before the end of the week I will be sharing the chapter books that I have chosen to read to my students.
Until next time!
