My Classroom and Bargains Galore on 64

Welcome to my classroom!!!! As you will see it is decorated as a farm! I love it!!!!

This box was cardboard brown. I painted it white then painted the drawers with chalkboard paint (since I change things soooooo often).

My cubbies that our very talented custodian built! My computer area!
View from my door.
More cubbies and a cabinet (another Matt original).
My library is housed it that blue cubbie thingy. Books on tape are on the shelf and all my Science materials are organized by unit in the baskets.
Reading area for my students.
Front of the classroom. View is from my desk. Those are my Math manipulatives and centers.
Hutch...another great thrift store find! It houses my printer, paper, stickers, books, supplies, etc. I took the doors off so I could get to the storage easier.
The back of my desk area. My papers, files, and fridge are hidden or just organized well!!!

This is my favorite...an old tool box turned into a paper towel and kleenex holder.
A Bargains Galore find....the shelf was $1!!!! It houses my Reading Lab supplies very well!!!!
My desk! That tool box is also from Bargains Galore it was .75! It houses my paper clips, notepads and sticky notes!

My writing center! Another tool box from BG. It was $1 and will be the container the students turn in their ticket work to!
Close up of the shelf....

Last but not least....a parrot from BG $1....for our Hawaii welcome unit.

First of all, your classroom is AMAZING! Wow, I wish you would have been MY teacher! :)

Secondly, thank you SO much for your sweet comment. I try not to take comments like that to heart, but sometimes I can't help it and it hurts my feelings. But know that YOU made my night! I read your comment out loud to my Husby and he said, "I love that lady!" :) So thank you. Some people just don't know when to keep quiet, huh? Ugh. Thanks again, sweet lady.
