Today is the day people all over Blogland reveal their classrooms!
I don't have my room totally set up yet since I don't go back until September 3rd, but I'll show you a few things I'm excited about.





I promise I'll share more once it is ready.

One other sad note.  I'm not perfect.  Not even close.  I play this song a lot in my room.

A dear coworker found an error in my Write It:  A Year of Sight Word Puzzles :(

I have updated the file and it is ready to be re-downloaded if you purchased it already.  The page you'll want to re-run is page 41.  
My apologies!!

Link up with Blog Hoppin' with photos from your room!

    1. I got the bins from Really Good Stuff. They came in a pack with red, green and blue. My team worked together so each of us has a set of all the same color.

  11. I used the vinyl dots at the beginning of the school year...my students (kinder) couldn't stop picking at the edges and I finally had to remove them all - so disappointed!!! I found my dots in the dollar bin at our Walmart :)

  14. Where did you get the cute number labels for your book bins or did you make them? I love them. You have such a nice classroom. I am thinking of trying the dry erase spots. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You can get Brag Tags through a couple of companies (http://www.schoollife.com/). I gave them to kids when they met a goal. For example, they got a Number Ninja tag when they learned all their numbers to 100. They are super fun!

  20. Where did you buy the dots for your GR table and what are they called??? I have been looking for them but not sure what they are called to look for them online!

    1. Hello! I got them from The Board Dudes but they don't sell them anymore. I've found similar ones at Office Max/Depot, Home Depot and Lowes. Bed, Bath and Beyond sell them, too. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/wallpops-removable-dry-erase-message-dots-and-marker-set-of-3/132464?skuId=18558246&mcid=PS_googlepla_nonbrand__&adpos=1o1&creative=43742621749&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CI2U_-nFwMcCFQYvaQodY80LpQ

  21. Your classroom looks amazing. Just wondering if you could use contact for the dry erase dots? Would that work? Also, maybe material shops like lincraft or spotlight might sell vinyl to cut into circles or other shapes for a cheaper option.

    1. I'm not sure if contact paper would work...you'd have to make sure it could be written on. It's worth a shot though!
