Classroom Decor: Classroom Reveal!

This year we decorated our classroom with a Super Hero Decor theme, which was really fun.  In the video above you may notice some of the rooms and our super hero decor.  Here are a few more photos for you to look at:)

As we go on our virtual tour of our classroom... you will first walk through the front door and enter into our mud room.  This is where rain boots, umbrellas, jackets, and backpacks get dropped off.  We also have a friendly little reminder about what our  family rules are (they are included in the class rules set)...I added desk name tags to each of the baskets and used the editable bunting to put their names over their cubbies! Ok, now let's go down the hall to our school room.  

Inside of our school room I have our cursive alphabet posters for quick reference.  I used the editable labels for our lockers, overhead storage shelf, and pencil jars.  I also have our center posters and writing process posters on the opposite wall, to help me keep track of everyone's progress.  Now let's head on over to the kitchen table area:)  (This area is everyone's favorite place to work:)

I went ahead and made a bulletin board area on the back wall out of a table cloth, a welcome bunting, and napkins.  Everyone wrote their name on a napkin and what they thought their "super power" was.  Some put kindness, taekwondo, friendship, art, soccer, etc.  One of the first things we talked about is how they all have special gifts, talents, and abilities that make them unique!  Thanks for going on a little virtual tour today with us.  I hope this inspired you to bring some color and excitement to your "super" classroom this year:)


 I am now taking custom requests for product if you need a different font, color, or???  ~just ask!!

This is our flashback post from last year with our polka dot chevron decor: 

Hi there, welcome to The Traveling Classroom:)  As soon as I finished making this adorable bundle of polka dot chevron classroom decor, I immediately went to work on our classroom.  I couldn't wait to paint, print, laminate, and decorate!  

Let me take you on a little virtual you walk through the front door you will enter our mud room.  This is where rain boots, umbrellas, jackets, and backpacks get dropped off.  We also have a friendly little reminder about what our class rules are...

 On the front of our classroom door we have two clip charts.  One is for classroom jobs and the other is our schedule clip chart.  I use the clothespins to help us keep track of what everyone is doing and what their responsibilities are for the week.

The clip chart below on the right side is a behavior chart.  I plan on using it this year to help everyone have good attitudes and also to reward their hard work (or give consequences for their bad behavior).

 As you walk into our classroom on the right wall there are cursive alphabet posters, Hebrew alphabet cards, desk name tags, and our classroom labels.  There is also a desk area for three of my kiddos and their lockers.

I added a bunting to our window as a decoration and hopefully to help the birds not hit the window anymore!

 On the left side of the room is our classroom library, storage cabinets, geography center, and calendar.

 Our calendar was a really fun project.  I took an old magnetic whiteboard that we had, wrapped it with wrapping paper and decorated it.  I used polka dot washi tape, a hot pink boarder, and crayola alphabet letters!  My favorite part about this calendar board is that it is all magnetic and easy to use!  I also hot glued magnets to the back of our days of the week cards and put them on our lockers.

(Hot glue is key when decorating, just refuse to use tape and you will save yourself a lot of headaches-I speak from experience:)

 In another room nearby is my office.  I decided to turn my desk area into the writing center.  I hung up our writing process posters across the back wall.   When the kids are working on writing projects, they love to sit at my desk while we brainstorm and edit.   (If you are wondering what that wire is that I am hanging everything on - it is a curtain wire from Ikea!  Most of the decor in my classroom is from Ikea, including the lockers & chairs!)

Thanks for stopping by and going on a little tour with me:)
