My Classroom... 2013-14

This has been a weird year so far. Due to some scheduling issues, we had 4 teacher days this week and then kids start on Monday. I have never started school on a Monday in my entire life. Typically, teachers start on Monday and kids on Thursday, until this year. I really hope this isn't a trend that continues in future years because it has been the most stressful start of the year ever! Even with an extra official day, I don't feel ready for kids on Monday and that really freaks me out!

Either way, I took a couple of pictures of my room to share with you guys :)

Walking into my room, here's my door, inspired by @rachelrosales...


From the front of the room, here is the view from my podium...


And finally, the view from my desk...


You may notice that my room looks a lot like it did last year. That's because all of the math classrooms in my building are identical to each other. The only difference is that the math rooms at the end of the hallway have doors that open up into a science classroom for collaboration. I'm sure I'll post pictures of that collaboration during the school year.

I just wish I felt as ready on the inside as my classroom looks! :)

Your classroom has a nice, soothing look to it. I'll bet your students feel comfortable from the minute they enter the room, especially since you have a welcoming message greeting them at the door!

Good luck on Monday. We've done Monday starts for the past 4 years and it is rough starting with a 5-day week, but it's worth it to be done with all the beginning of school year formalities at once.

I start on Monday too. And I'm also stressed and woefully unprepared. We got a whopping two hours of prep time this year. I do believe I will be spending most of my weekend at the school.
Best of luck to you. Your room looks incredible, and I'm sure you'll be ready to go when those little cherubs come bouncing in on Monday morning.

It looks great! Good luck on Monday. I just finally was able to get into my classroom yesterday. I felt like a deer in the headlights as to where to begin. I start back Aug 28th and kids start Sept 3rd so I still have a few weeks to go.

I love the messages on your door! Good luck with the start of school on Monday. My first day with kids is September 4, but we also go deep into June.
