It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like a Classroom!

Tanya and I have been BUSY!!  We finally have almost all our furniture in place.  We have cleaned out and organized EVERYTHING!  Tanya has kept her Cricut buzzing along.  Things are getting put up on the walls.  Tomorrow we will decorate the hall outside our classroom and we will start putting together our orientation packets.  Lesson plans will be made and name tags will be put on desks later in the week.  And, we will have the room all set up for meeting our new kinder friends on Monday and then having our parent night Monday night.  Here a just a few new pics of what we have been working on:

Tanya used her Cricut and the western cartridge to create our super cute "Birthday Buckeroos" wall!  LOVE IT!!
This is our calendar area. Tanya used her Cricut to make the words (they look like rope). I borrowed "Make Every Day Count" from someone on an awesome blog but, I can't remember which one.  I bought the calendar pocket chart and the "Counting the Days" pocket chart from Really Good Stuff.  I've never had one of these before.  I have always just added what I wanted to my calendar bulletin board.  I use the little pig next to the "Counting the Days" pocket chart as another way to count the days in school.  We add a penny each day and exchange pennies for nickels, nickels for dimes, etc.
"Chow Time" - lunch menu posted over the shelf that we will use for lunchboxes.  Love all the western fonts we found on Lettering Delights! 
More photos to come!  


  1. You have got to love a Cricut and Lettering Delights!! I would add a Diet Coke to that and it would make my day!! Your room looks great!

  2. It's looking great! I love to use my cricut and our school has one too so that's even better!

  3. Thank you for the comments! BusyBees, I LOVED the pics of your classroom as well! And I would have to add a Diet Dr. Pepper or a Coke Zero to make my day!
    Megan, our grade level bought one with left over funds from last year to use at school, also. Everyone was so excited!
    Have a great day, ladies!
