So I may be incredibly late to the party, but I always show up! So this year I made the change from Fifth Grade to Third Grade. That meant my Harry Potter classroom theme of 9 years had to go. I LOVED that theme, but it was;t really appropriate for my third graders. Here's what it looked like to refresh your memory....
|It was an incredibly MAGICAL room and I loved it!|
|When I was done taking everything down it was pretty depressing!|
But I didn't waste much time. It was time to start painting, time to say goodbye to the Magical Purple and Silver and HELLO to the heroic Blue and Yellow!
So I spent a a great deal of my Summer (the parts when I wasn't floating in the pool) getting my room ready to welcome my Super third graders. I didn't do it all by myself. My mother has never cut more laminate in her life as she did this summer. My Co-teacher created the curtains with help from her nice when it came to hand-painting the designs. Pun completely intended, but I think it looks SUPER!
|Here is my job chart and our SUPER Class behavior chart. Our goal is to move Superman up to the top of the skyline. When we do we turn a blue letter red and when the entire word is red we have a class celebration.|
|I hate the wood look of my room so I covered my closet doors and walls |
with laminated blue cloud bulletin board paper

|Remember all that laminate I was talking about!|
|Tables Power Up by working as a team|
|In this picture you can see the wood panels above my closets that I really thought aged the room.|
|I found these pillows at 5 Below- $5 a piece-LOVE IT!|
|All heres need a place to hide their capes- For my third grade heres it's behind these Superman and Wonder Woman curtains.|
|Window curtains- We used read because we felt it looked like a superheroes cape.|
|Saw this on Pinterest and had to make it outside my classroom for us to display our work throughout the year.|
|I spruced up this old mailbox by painting the outsides and|
placing laminated colored paper in each draw-another Pinterest idea.
|Loved this poster I saw on Pinterest and made it large to put|
near my mailboxes.
|With the lights out, it looks like my curtains glow.|
|My dad built this table and I completed the design. The best part its low to the floor so my friends can sit on pillows and work here.|
Thanks for joining me for what I hope will be a SUPER year!
See ya later!
