Winner of Giveaway and More Classroom Pictures

First, today was the last day to enter the big back to school giveaway. The lucky winner of all these fabulous prizes is Janine N.. You will be receiving your prizes soon.

For other news I have joined Corinna from Surfin Through Second's Classroom Theme Linky. I already posted a ton of pictures in my previous post, but I have some more to share.

I found this idea on pinterest. Just hot glued clothespins to my card stock.

This is my writer's eye wall. I am still working on my writer's area, so those pics will come later. I can't find where I got my owl posters but you can get a different set here for FREE.

This is my homemade pocket chart. I am not totally happy with the way it turned out but it will do. You can find directions on how to make your own here.

Here is my reading center. I have showed this in a previous post, but it is just my favorite part of my room. I worked so hard on this and am pretty sure the fire marshall will get me for it. But I guess until then we can enjoy.

These little letter owls came from here for FREE.

This is our listening center.

This is my school supply shelf and you can get the labels here for FREE.

 When my kiddos don't finish something they put it in the "I'm not finished yet tub."

This area is right behind my small group table. I know it looks like a lot and like it would be overwhelming to the students, but I plan to help them find the letter sound they are stuck on when in small group with me so they can figure the word out on their own. You can get them here for FREE.

 Here is my part of speech wall. It seems like no matter how many times you say an adjective is a describing word, they just can't remember. So, I thought it would be nice to have up all year. You can get these posters here.

Don't you always have the kids that want to turn their paper in first and miss half of the directions or write so sloppy you couldn't read it if someone paid you?? Well I found this adorable smiley work poster. This way they have to make sure they have done everything before they turn it in. There is also one for writing too. You can get them here for FREE.

Saw this idea on pinterest and HAD to make one. Just brightens up the room.

Here are my voice level posters that you can get here for FREE.

Here is our clock area. You can get the clock numbers for FREE here. I was very disappointed when I found FREE owl ones here though. The skip counting hands and feet can be found here for FREE. The key words for addition/subtraction can be found here for FREE.

Here is my new morning calendar area. I am using The Secret to a Successful Calendar that can be found here.

I am going to use table numbers this year. I get these adorable ones here for FREE.

I am also going to try the "Fill Our Class Bucket." I found this cute sign here for FREE and just painted a frame from the Dollar Tree for it. The rocks and green bucket also came from the Dollar Tree. We have 4 nine weeks so this sign works perfect for me.

I got this idea from here. You just make your own flash cards for whatever skill you want and they put the question side up in the top and it shoots it out answer side up. LOVE IT!!

Here are some pictures of the whole room from different angles.

Hope you were able to get something from this. Don't forget about the big sale from TPT. My products will be 20% plus the discount TPT is giving. August 12th-13th

Have a GREAT weekend!!
