The room is ready!

The time has come. School starts bright and early tomorrow morning. I think pretty much everything is in place for another school year. I always enjoy seeing pictures of other teacher's rooms when I look at their blogs, so I'm going to put up a few pictures from my room. If nothing else, I can look back fondly in a few weeks and reminisce about how clean and shiny everything is. 

I made a few changes to my room this year. I dedicated my main bulletin board wall to information about what each grade level is studying. In the past, I have always put up prints and changed out a few as the year went along. I purchased a bunch of vocabulary cards at the end of the year last year that I think will work really well on new bulletin board. 

Another change this year has to do with this blog. I'm going to try my best to attach lesson plan files to each new post. Hopefully this is helpful to people who read the blog. If there are any other requests for things you'd like to see on here, comment and let me know! Happy 2011-2012 everyone!

Your room is so neat! I love the idea of putting what each grade is studying. And, it looks like your artists have plenty of room to work. Nice job!

I just started my first year teaching elementary art, and i just found this blog. Great info, and pictures to boot! Your lesson plans are so concise, and I will definitely be back to grab a few more ideas as the year goes on!

Love the idea of showcasing what each grade level is doing. How are you attaching it to the paper? I always struggle with adhesive either not being strong enough to work, or it rips holes in the paper.
