1st Week of School, My Room, What I Made! & Mini Me!!!

I have finished my 1st week of school, and it was a wonderful week with the kiddos!  I have been so busy these last few weeks...I have so much I want to share with you!  First pictures of MY kids first day of school...can't believe they are as old as they are...time flies!

I had a parent who took pictures of each of the children for me with my '1st day of 3rd grade' frame.  Right now I have 34 children...whoa!...but this group has been WONDERFUL so far...last year was a VERY challenging group & we spent most of the year in rows {YUCK!!}...this year YIPPIE...back to groups!!! :-D

For 2 years I have wanted to make stools out of the 5 gallon buckets...I have made 4 so are a few pictures...
I also made over my two stools in my room...I DO love that staple gun! I used Scotch's colored masking tape for the legs on the one stool...didn't have the tape or time to do the other one that way!

Here are a few more pictures of my classroom...more to come soon...I hope!

Our school got rid of several small trash cans and gave us this one mondo trash can... :-( ...oh the upper left of this board I have my 'In this class we...' poster I made through Vistaprint.

This poster from Vistaprint didn't look that was dirty and had tape marks all over it, so I just cut out the elements from it & stuck each of those up...actually like it better this way! :-)

Here is a close up of the Love & Logic poster.

On my fire extinguisher box are the girls & boys restroom passes...magnetic frames...tried acrylic frames last year early in the year but they got busted...this has worked much better...on the picture below are the girls & boys hand sanitizers... they leave them on their desk when they sign out for the restroom.

More pictures to come!!!

I am SUPER DUPER THRILLED with my 'mini me' by 'The Library Fox'!!!!!! It was worth EVERY penny!! Now I just need to research how to redo my 'signature' at the bottom of my posts!!
Have a great week everyone...I will try to post again soon!!
