My Second Home

I never got around to sharing pictures of my second home, my classroom, with y’all. I know several of you asked so I thought this would be the perfect time to share pictures with you all.

I was able to get some pictures of my room right before our Meet the Teacher night started. A few things have changed in my room, but this is what it generally looks like.

The Vintage Modern Wife's 1st grade classroomI took this picture from the back of my classroom. Up front is my word wall, calendar, white board, and a projector that acts as an interactive white board. I also have 2 bookshelves for a reading area on the right, and a discipline chart on the left, I arranged my desks in groups of 5 which has worked really well!

The Vintage Modern Wife's 1st grade classroomThis is more of the room. I don’t have a traditional teacher desk because I felt like the kidney table AND a teacher desk took too much room. I put my computer on a tiny computer table, and put my kidney table next to it. It works really well. I also have my Math board on that wall with boxes underneath for our math stations. I like to keep organized if you can’t tell!

Love the way The Vintage Modern Wife did her teacher about me board! Love the pictures with the captions!This is my teacher about me bulletin board. It’s right behind my desk so the kids can get to know me better. They love asking about ‘Mr. Wolfe” and Pearl. They always ask for them to come visit, which I think is adorable.

This classroom job chart by The Vintage Modern Wife is so easy to make and really cute! I need one for my own class! I made this job chart for my classroom with cute circles from Mardel and some ribbon. It was too long to make all one, so I divided it into two and it works really well! I rotate the jobs weekly and the kids look forward to me announcing what their job is every Monday. I put their class number on the clothespins so I could keep using them every year and not have to worry about putting names on them!

So there ya have it! There’s more to my room now- like bulletins on all 4 sides of the walls with actual charts on them, and I didn’t ever take pictures of the back of my classroom because it was an empty bulletin board and a row of computers, but maybe I’ll take some updated ones soon.

Regardless, this place is my second home and I love it. As a first year teacher, I think it looks pretty darn good!

  5. Love it! I’m a SAHM and one of these days my work area will be pretty too, but I don’t want to decorate an apartment when we won’t be here that long.
