Before Classroom Pictures!

I thought all of you would like to see some before pics of my classroom, so here they are....it's a disaster, but it WILL be finished tomorrow, if all printing gets finished...keep your fingers crossed!!!
This is the old safe place and friends and family board.

my library in progress (see the stacks of books on the floor?) and a picture of my awful CHAMPs board.

my word wall was above the computers, but I took it down before I decided to take a picture. Most of this is storage and will stay that way....cause I'm crazy messy like that!

My door and my NEW Smartboard!!!!!

My Smart board and half my alphabet, because it had to be taken down for the Smartboard. 

My MESSY personal space/reading group table

Wall o' Windows and classroom library.

Back white board that had the I Can statements, calendar, and CHAMPs board on it. Things will change a little because I will now need this board since I have a NEW SMARTBOARD!!!
That's all for now! Hopefully by the end of this week, I will be able to have a BIG classroom reveal, until then....

Well folks, I finally got my library labels finished...which means, that my classroom library is coming along. I'm going to make this a quick post tonight...just long enough to show all of you a sneak peak at my library labels. Tell me what you think!!!!

That's it for tonight!! Tomorrow I'm headed to my class to get a little bit a lot done. I'll take some before pics, just because it's fun and a GREAT motivator!! I'll be back tomorrow, hopefully!!!

library update, reading game update, and August Currently

SO I have have been MIA since I got back from Vegas...actually, I have been hold up in my classroom trying my hardest to finish my classroom library. I am almost there, I just have to make my bin labels and then labels for my books to match the bins and I am done. I have already sorted the books so I will only have to put them in the respective bin. I REALLY hope it works out for me. The labels are almost finished and should be finished by Monday!!!

My reading game/incentive is also almost finished...as soon as I have the finishing touches added, I will post a preview of it and upload it to my TPT store. I REALLY hope this works too!!

I have also been busy working on a cute stool for my class that will be a watermelon color with some zebra and my last initial...it will be super duper cute, I just know it. As soon as a I get this much needed printer I am dying to have, I will be able to finish several other projects that I need finished so I can get my room together. I have 3 days....oh, please let this get finished....I really want it all done before teachers report back...keeping my fingers crossed.

Before I hop off and head to the store to get more book buckets and search for the perfect computer, I am going to link up with Farley from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for her Currently Link Up!

I can't believe I am 10 days behind on getting this up, oh well, better late than never.

Head over to Farley's blog and link up!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!!! I'll check back once I have more to tell.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot....I have 50 FOLLOWERS!!!! WHOOP!!!
