Classroom Decorating Day 1

Happy Tuesday, y'all! I went back to my classroom for the first time yesterday and worked a little bit. I didn't get a lot accomplished. I placed most of the furniture, but that was pretty much it. I'm getting rid of my teacher desk and another big table this year in an attempt to declutter! Anyways, here are the pics. I know it isn't much to look at, but it's fun to see the progress! Gotta start somewhere, right? 

Here's the view when I walked in. Those desks weigh a ton! It took forever just to get them all down and placed.

It's so easy to find decor for my black and white theme! These two rugs are from Wal Mart and TJ Maxx. This will be the reading area. 

I'm thinking 4 groups of 6 desks...I'm liking the way it looks, but I may change to 6 groups of 4 if there's enough room. See all that stuff stacked on the table??? That's tomorrows project!

Future small group area. Fun fact: I've never used a kidney shaped table, y'all! 

Future VIP Area. Don't know what this is? Read all about it here!

This blue table needs to find a new home. Mission Declutter has officially begun!

The teacher desk will also leave the room. I usually sit at my small group table anyways and I'm trying to make more room for the kids to read and work around the room instead of sitting in their desks all class period. 

Hopefully boards will start going up later this week and I can share some "cute" pics with y'all! :) :)

  1. Looking great! I am really hoping to decluttter this upcoming year also! Good for you!

  2. I'm jealous that you can work in your classroom over the summer. I have difficulty getting into my room even the week before school starts! Can't wait to see the finished design!

  3. I love what you've done and I especially love your tables! We just finished school about a week ago and I thought that I wasn't ready to start planning for next year already but now I'm thinking I might be! Good luck! Can't wait to see more

  4. Can't wait to see what you do! I got rid of my teacher desk two years ago and it was the best move ever! I, too, do not use a kidney table, but my assistant does. I teach first grade and last year we had 27 kiddos with 3 groups of 7 and one group of 6. I didn't have enough room to do smaller groups but this year, I am teaching a transition class of first grade that will have 15 students with an assistant so I will be able to do much smaller groups! I will be able to get back in my room in about three weeks. They just finished summer school and now they are waxing, *sigh*. Have fun!
