Amidst all of the craziness, however, I was surprisingly able to keep my classroom! I am so thankful that I didn't have to pack-up and move to a whole new area. The science lab construction is directly beside me, which makes for some loud days, but I am very fortunate compared to some of our teachers.
With that being said, here are the official pictures of my room for the 2014-2015 school year! While I've maintained a lot of the basic themes and ideas from last year, I feel more organized this year after experiencing the routines of a classroom:
|View looking in from the door!|
Last year I had to seat enough for 30 students but
this year I only have to accommodate 20; I love how
much more room there is!!
|My Math Area at the back of the room.|
For a close up of my "Do You Think Like a Mathematician"
posters and a free download, check out my classroom revealpost from last year!

|View of the west wall of my room. I added the curtains as an|
accent this year and made them out of plastic tablecloths and duct-tape!
|The Chill-Out Area!|
This year I was able to add a beautiful carpet depicting the
seven teachings! I love how the colours through the carpet and
my posters tie the room together.

This year I added the numberline along the top of the whiteboard.
|The News Area section of my whiteboard. Each class has their|
own area but I've also housed the master Interactive Notebooks
for each math class to keep track of.
I also got a new filing cabinet so I'm no longer holding supplies under
This area holds all of my teaching resources since I got rid
of my desk last year. The top of the counter holds our hand-in box,
my out-box, and an area for extra photo-copies.
|Our Tech Area!|
This area is used for our blogging projects and is where the
hook-ups for the SMART Board are.
While not a lot of large-scale changes occurred this year, I am loving my classroom and feel way more prepared this year!
Wishing all the teachers out there an awesome back-to-school start!
