Summer Projects

After teaching in the same room for 8 years, and having the same decor for 10 years, I have decided it is time for a change!  

Leading up to this year, my classroom color scheme was red, yellow, green, and blue.  When my class size increased I added orange, lime green, and light blue.  

In addition to these colors, I had a frog themed room (hence the theme of my blog).  The frog theme started, not for a love of frogs (because I don't), but because that is what all the rage was when I first started teaching at our local teacher supply store.  My classroom was soon dubbed the "Frog Room."  Throughout the year children and teachers began collecting frog things for me.  I naturally felt bad changing my theme the following year, so it stuck!

This year, I am going to continue with the frog theme, but toned down.  I am however, changing my colors.  My new colors are blue, lime green, and teal.  I am so excited to makeover my classroom!

My first project is spray painting.  I have several things that I am going to be painting.  The first project is my cubbies!

10 years ago, my hubby and my dad created these awesome cubbies for me.  They are awesome!!  They are 14" X 14" (perfect for a binder).  I use these for just bout everything.  Each child has a cubby that holds their book box, work folders, (interactive notebooks--new this year), and headphones.    

Here are some pictures of the cubbies before, during, and in the classroom.
