Classroom Set Up Craziness #1

Classroom Set Up Day 1

Okay, so I went up to my classroom today to begin unpacking and moving my furniture back into place. I'm sure many of you know what that's like... I was on my way and all excited.  I stopped by a couple of stores on the way to grab some must haves and actually got to school around 9:30. WOW! This is even with all 3 kids too. I open the back of my car to get all my things out and frantically realized I'd forgotten the bulk of it at home.  Arghhhhhh. I left my fabric at home.  That was the main thing I needed because the plan was to cover the bulletin boards and make skirts for my computer tables.  I'm sure I should've just unpacked things and moved furniture around, but who can do that if your room isn't already looking cute right? So what did I do? I turned around and drove all the way back home to get it.  I live about 25 minutes away so I was not a happy camper.

Once I got to the school, I had to move a few things around but honestly just sat there looking at the  mess. The floors are freshly waxed and the school looks great, but now I have to conquer getting the room back together. This year I decided to blog about doing that. I didn't want to just put up the final pictures. These will be true pictures of what most teachers go through. Why isn't there an easy button?
Just getting started...stuff everywhere!
I just shoved all my tables to the center of the room for now...

Gotta keep my 3yr old occupied! With coloring and playdough she stayed busy.
LOVE my daughter who helped to begin organizing my supply cabinet again.

Bulletin board fabric on....border on...Still haven't decided what to put on it though.

This is the back of my supply cabinet. I want to make it a usable space but I don't know what to put on it. Maybe class jobs or even make it a magnetic center. I'm not sure. I'd love some ideas!

This is the back corner of my room...just a cozy area. I hot glued a white board to the wall..shhhhh.  I thought It could be something the kids can use for the new common core math when working on problem solving.

These are going to be my students' book totes to use during the CAFE and Daily 5 reading I'm going to start this year. More on that to come. I've got some goodies I'll share with you on this one later.

I can't stand to see all the messy computer cables. So I put a fabric skirt on the table. I hot glue it.  It's a little long, but I'll cut it. I also added some cute ribbon to the top.

Love the ribbon!!! It goes with my polka dot theme.

Finished... It stays pretty well all year. I love doing this!

Stay tuned! I am taking pictures each day I work on my room. I like to go into preplanning week not stressing out over this type of thing. I love having it done ahead of time.


  1. Yahoo! Looks fabulous! I LOVE the idea with the white board on the wall for math. With Number Talks all the rage it will be very useful...I may steal this!:)

  2. Everything looks great so far! I love how you use every bit of space, like the back of your supply cabinet. :)

  3. Thanks Mandy and Lisa! More to come tomorrow..... I already have a headache. :) Why is this so hard every year?

  4. Your room already looks wonderful and you've just begun! I love the ribbon on the table edge. Isn't it amazing how the little touches really tie everything together?

    Thanks for sharing... I can't wait to see some more pics...

    Finding JOY in 6th Grade

  5. So jealous that you are in and started. My school is getting some much need updates this summer. 100 year old building. I was just in last week and it is still looking like a war zone. I am looking forward to getting started. Hopefully they will be finished soon.

    I like the color coordinating that you have done. I am wanting to stream-line my color scheme this year so that it isn't such a mess. It will depend on how soon I can get in there.

  6. I love what you've done so far! I am also glad you are blogging about it. New teachers and us veterans, need reminders of everything there is to do.(I will be making a list this week!) I can't get into my classroom unitl Thursday..wet wax.

  7. Hope that fabric is fire proof. Our fire marshall made me remove fabric curtains I made for my classroom. I had not treated them in a chemical to fire proof the material.

  9. Looks like you have a great start. Like the idea of putting fabric on the tables to hide the mess of the computers.

    Thinking Out Loud

  10. I love the fabric covering the tables w/ the ribbon trim. I'm wondering if it comes off fully at the end of the year because I'd love to do that in my room, but we're not allowed to make permanent changes. From your experience can you get all of the hot-glue off?

  11. You got a lot done today!! Your bulletin boards look great and I love your fabric skirt, so smart! I am itching to get into my room, but it will still be a few more weeks. Can't wait to see it when it is all put together.

    The Teaching Thief

  12. I can't wait to get into my new classroom and move things around and unpack boxes. I had to change schools so I'm really starting over. The first day is usually just tears because it's so overwhelming!

    So you hot glued a white board to the wall?? will it really stay?? I'm curious!

  13. Your classroom is beautiful so far. I like the polka dots too! Your idea of hot gluing the material to the table is super. I have a small table with a piece of material over it and it keeps slipping around, so I am going to try the hot glue and ribbon option. Can't wait.....thanks!

  16. does the fabric stay on your computer area well... do the kids kick it down with their feet? I have the exact same thing and I would love to try that

    1. It stays up pretty much all year even with the kids kicking it and pushing the chairs in.

  17. I love it! Fabric around the table is genius!

  18. Your room looks fabulous! I love what you've done, but was wondering what type of fabric you used for the table so that you could cut the bottom without having to hem it (or did you need to hem it?)
