New Classroom Pictures and Pinterest Craft Night

As I said in my last post, I finished my classsroom.  Then on Sunday, I took it all down and moved to the classroom next door.  It took me 10 hours, but I got it done!!  Thankfully, I had help from my husband, parents, and two friends.  I would have never finished it without them.  Click HERE to see pictures of my classroom before I tore it all down and started over.
Here are some pictures of my new classroom.

Calendar and Focus Wall (Notice my adorable alphabet from Katie at Queen of the First Grade Jungle. Love it!!)

Windows and a door to the outside

Tuesday night, a couple of teachers that I Crossfit with, got together and had a Pinterest inspired Craft Your Classroom Night.  It was a lot of fun.  Here is the frame that I made using my Cameo:
The students will hold this up so I can get pictures of each of them on the first day of school.
Here are the crafts that my friends created.

How cute are these owls!!!!!  Original idea found HERE.

She can use dry erase markers to write her lesson objective on these frames.  I searched and searched for the original spot for this idea because it is all over Pinterest, but could not find the original source.  If you know, please let me know and I will give credit.

I love these clipboards and they are on my list of things to make during our next craft night!!  This idea was found HERE
 So, now I plan on enjoying the last couple days of summer vacation!!  I cannot believe how fast the summer has gone 🙁  I sure will miss sleeping in a little bit and mornings at the park with my girls.
