School starts in just two weeks! I can't believe how fast the summer has gone... and yet I have already been to school and have most of my classroom set up. Of course it looks a lot different than those Super Kid classroom pics I've posted in the past! Didn't think those would "fly" in 5th grade! I loved it, but time to move on. My classroom had to grow up!
So I started with Dots on Black from Creative Teaching Press. It's very versatile for a 5th grade classroom with bright green cabinets! Tones down all that green, but has lots of colors for me to pull out in other ways. I have all of the borders, labels, desk plates, computer paper, everything! I love their new chalkboard Inspire U posters. Would LOVE to have those! I haven't ordered them yet, but they are definitely on my wish list. CTP has a lot of new stuff, I can see a lot of teachers wanting their new mustache line (I know students would get a kick out of that!). They are also having a HUGE giveaway, giving ten $200 classroom makeovers for Back-to-School. And who doesn't love a makeover?
I must say, our room is looking pretty good! I still need to tweak a few things, so I'll post pictures as soon as I make it over there again. Even though it was hard to give up the superhero theme (I did go to Comicon in June, after all!), I do love the new look. Hope the kids love it as much as I do!
