Classroom Tour

I have managed to make it through my first 7 days of school!  Woohoo!  My group this year is SO sweet and I love them already.  I have a lot of REALLY high kids, so I'm already learning a lot this year myself!  I'm really loving this challenge and excited to see what I can do with them.

So on with the classroom tour, because I know how much teachers love looking at other teachers' classrooms!  ;)  I'm linking up with Blog Lovin' for their Classroom Tour day.  Perfect timing!  :)

Ever since I started teaching 8 years ago, I've had the same classroom theme: brights and black.  It's one of my favorites and I just love, love, love it, but this year I needed something different to look at. I was inspired by a piece of fabric from Hobby Lobby, which became my door curtain.

It reminded me of something Caribbean-ish or Mediterranean-ish.  SO calming and soothing!  I found everything turquoise and light-lime/mint-green that I could.  Can I just say I love sitting in my room and just staring at it?  :)  I'm just going to list all these pictures right in a row and at the bottom I'll try and list where I got everything.  Oh, and we are allowed to paint our rooms, so I used Valspar Limonata on the wall with the window.  :)
