Here is what my classroom looked like before:
Since I was able to stay in my room, I was able to leave my bulletin board fabric up. That did save some time getting set up.
I decided to work on my library first.
Now for the after photos:

My desk & my co-teacher's desk (against the board)
Here are some close-ups of my bulletin boards:
|My Jobs Board. Paper is recycled newspaper. I created the bulletin board set, and it can be purchased in my Teacher's Notebook shop! (Everything 20% off until Monday!)|
|My CAFE Board. I just realized I didn't get a picture of the whole thing. You can see the sports-theme CAFE posters and the Daily 5 posters above the board. Both available in my Teacher's Notebook shop!|
And to celebrate the first day of school (and to thank you for sticking around to the end of this extremely long blog post), I am giving away a freebie! I am going to give my students gifts on the first day of school. They will get an eraser, pencil, a penny, and a pack of smarties. I will put them in a lunch sack and attach this to it.
All I ask is that you please rate my shop! I have had a lot of sales and not one is leaving feedback!
