Classroom Sneak Peak...

I was fully prepared to take pictures of my finished classroom before our Open House tomorrow. However, sorry ladies… it just not in the cards to happen! That little hurricane about to hit the South is messing up my blogging plans! Tears. However, I will eventually do a full post of my classroom pictures! Pinky swear. In the meantime, please keep those in the line of the hurricane in your prayers to be safe during this time. 

Since I cannot do the full unveiling of my new 1st Grade home… I will do a sneak peak of what I managed to snap on my camera phone. 

My new math tub area, and AR Quiz Line {which I posted about last year/ but I will post my new AR Line soon for you to download and use in your classroom}. BTW I am loving the picture frame that says Math Tubs… in my shopping spree for teacher goods I could not pass up some cheap frames from target. I figured eventually they would come in handy. Glad I listened to my shopalolism voices. :)
Last year, like many nights I randomly stumbled upon whole brain teaching you tube videos… who knows what I was actually searching for. However, I am so lucky to have found whole brain! If you have not yet, youtube search for whole brain videos! Worth the few minutes of your time. 
Below are the posters I made to go with our rules that I adapted from some of the videos I found. I added the sassy ribbon… because I felt like it. No other reason. 
Now here is my little piece of home in my classroom. Feather lamp? Necessity. Three sassy frames with a picture the band took from our wedding… best night ever, a picture of my little nuggets, and my BFF Ms. Thomas. She only deserves the best hot pink sequin frame, am I right?
Lastly, I am just proud of my bow I made for my pointer holder. If you only knew how many SAD attempts it took before I made ONE decent looking bow. Bless my soul if I have a daughter… I guess I will be purchasing those overpriced bows in order to spare her from the embarrassment. 
I am SOO excited to show you the entire room! 
Until then, I hope everyone is safe during this time and that all we get in LA is some rain… I finally found my rain boots and gosh darnit' I want to wear them on my day off playing in the rain!
