Room Makeover!

Opening day is quickly approaching.  I will be teaching fourth grade for the first time ever....19 years in third!  Our school system has redistricted and placed fourth graders in the primary buildings.   Luckily, I did not have to move buildings or my classroom and made the choice to move up.  I have six returning students and was ready for a room makeover.  I wanted to give my room a different feeling for my students and myself.  I choose to do a Rock and Roll theme this year.
 I have worked very hard the past few weeks and was inspired by many photos on several blogs and Pinterest.  Here are my results.
The children will autograph a star.
I added spotlights and gold cellophane for lights from the ceiling.
The sign in station for attendance, lunch and bathroom.

The cards are from Teacherclubhouse.com.
I attached the stars with Velcro so that they can be changed weekly.
My Bucket made from a Target pail.


The children will add bucket filler slips to the pockets.

I got this adorable birthday download on Teachers Pay Teachers from Hope King.
Their birthdays will be written on notes.

My favorite new addition...my tool kit.
The download is from http://mrsrojasteaches.blogspot.com/.

The writing center is actually my teacher desk covered with a tablecloth.
Many ideas are inspired from Pinterest.  Check out my link.

My social studies board is ready for a US Postcard Exchange.

I will add pictures of book covers as we share during the year. 
The download is from http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bnewingham/myweb3/teacher_resources.htm.

My mini-listening center. 
The cubes are from Target and have storage.

My CAFE board is ready!  The download is from proteacher.com.

The calendar and math took kits.  I have math vocabulary to add as we go.


My VIP Multiplication passes...stars will be added to each table passed.
I created a file folder to correlate with each reading story.  It includes, title, author, genre, skill and vocabulary. 
The skill sheet was downloaded from
http://blogs.scholastic.com/top_teaching/2011/03/my-march-top-ten-list-nonfiction-reading-resources.html.

My teacher corner is ready for students!  Yeah!!!


The book corner is organized by author and genres, there is a bookcase full of chapter books to the left.
