Today was the official first day of school!
It is always a joyous day filled with excitment and jitters.
Here is a peek at my classroom that greeted 18 new First Grade students today. I created a slide show with tags on where you can purchase some items. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
I have been cruising a nautical theme now for years. I like to stick with nautical in general and just add some pizzaz to it. Last year I added the flamingos. They bring a nice pink brightness to the room. This year I had to add some beach shack vibe with my "shiplap" fadeless paper. Yes, I may have watched a little too much of Chip and JoAnna Gaines this summer.
New this year is the decor on the front of my classroom door. I had seen a picture on Facebook and asked my local monogram store, Leisa Lovely, to make a vinyl sticker quote for my door. Last year I had ticky tacked all the individual letters and over the year the kids moved them or wrinkled them. Now, I don't have to worry about it. It looks great and I don't have to worry about it being ruined. A big kudos and thanks to Leisa for letting me be her guinnea pig for this idea. It's been a hit with just 24 hours.
Another new item is the idea to upcycle the pages from my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. I knew I wanted to save some of the pages to create a fun bulletin board, when at the last minute I decided to make the letters and laminate them. I also used a few pages for background accent.
I hope you enjoy the tour of my new room.
