Classroom Makeover Sneak Peek

This afternoon I was finally able to coordinate with my design assistant (AKA my awesome incredible fabulous amazing Mom!) to help me redo my bulletin boards.  Since I realized today that I haven't shown y'all my new classroom, I thought I'd give you a "Before & After" sneak peek at what I've been working on over the last few months.

WAY BEFORE

My first day moving in. This is the students' cubby area. Be thankful you can't see all the boxes I dragged from my old school behind the counter!
 

SOMEWHAT  LATER

 Getting better.... Am I the only crazy one who brings a feather duster to school?

AFTER

 Ahhh....much better! I just can't stand piles-o-stuff out where everyone can see.
Better feng-shui with bins from Target. :-)

BEFORE

Blah corkboard above the Student Supply Center I am creating. (Hey - I just noticed someone wrote "hi" on it....hmmm.......)

AFTER

Black paper with giraffe animal print trim. I've always loved black background paper- things just seem to "pop" out more.

BEFORE

A small blackboard and super loooooooooooong corkboard at the back of the room.

AFTER

Black paper and alternating zebra / cheetah print squared sections. Let me tell you - maneuvering that huge piece of paper was a bear and STILL it has ripples.  Oh well - there will be other things covering it up!

Just two more weeks to add the finishing touches!
Okay, I'll try not to freak out about that now.......

So what have you all been doing to prepare your classrooms?

  1. You are making progress. I guess I can say the same about my room, but I feel like it is taking forever. I have some before pictures and a couple of after pictures posted on my blog. I will post more when I'm completely finished. (Hopefully by this weekend.) Good luck with the rest of your room.
