Classroom Digs- Teacher Week '13

As some of you know, I have my classroom completely set up and ready to go for this year teaching second grade, then I had an amazing job opportunity open up at a school district closer to home! So, I took it and here it is!!

Here is the big CLASSROOM REVEAL PART 2!!

These are random and not in any sort of order!
Windows with my homemade drapes (shower curtain rod, fabric, iron-on hemming). I blogged about this a few days ago. 

Close up of my READ letters in the window.
And a few of my owls.

My Daily 5 bulletin board, plus my Listen to Reading area. 

My computer and word work area. 

Word Work tables. Love it! 

I'm excited to have a designated word work area. 

My guided reading/small group area!
I'm TOO excited to have a kidney bean table again!!! Missed it since my kindergarten days. 

Teacher corner with three bulletin boards and a white board I separated up with painter's tape. 

My Eno board,2 more bulletin boards, and another white board that I separated with painter's tape. 

Sink, behavior, filing rack

My student cubbies (plus a few of my 26 cabinets)...
Yes, we have exactly 26 cabinets. Perfect for my word wall!!! 
And my apologies for the messy cubby appearance. Some of the school supplies started rolling in, and I haven't found a home for those books and binders on the right.

Number, name, and owl to label their cubbies. 

Panoramic shot of the room.

View from the door.
Quite spacious!

Calendar area

Close up of the teacher area! 

Most of the owl items in the room can be found in my owl/chevron decor pack.


  1. Your classroom looks awesome Jessica! I am so jealous of all your space and cabinets. I just received keys to my new classroom at 3pm yesterday, so I am days away from a classroom reveal. I will definitely be borrowing some ideas from you.

  4. I'm impressed with the 26 cabinets. A teacher had to have chosen that number! I have exactly 4 cabinet doors in my room, and it is a bottom cabinet with a sink. I am very envious of your storage!!

  5. Love your homemade drapes - it gives such a homey feel to the whole room!
    Thanks for letting us peek inside.

  9. All those cabinets are making me sick with jealousy! I guess they actually provide storage in new schools! I am glad you were able to get a teaching opportunity closer to home! I am sure you will love first grade!

  10. Wow! You have lots of space Jessica! I don't think my new classroom even has enough cubbies. It's not like our class size is going down anytime soon!

    Thanks for letting us browse around. I will be sharing mine too...except mine is all in boxes in the school district storage area. We aren't allowed into the new school until Tuesday. I'm so anxious!
