Hellloooo everyone! So after months of following lots of AMAZING blogs, I decided to create one of my own! I have been inspired by so many wonderful teachers and hope that maybe I can inspire others by sharing a little of my classroom with all of you! I always LOVE looking at other teachers’ classrooms, so I thought I’d start off with a little classroom tour of my own! I didn’t have time to take recent pictures, so here is a collection of pictures that I’ve taken since the beginning of the year! Enjoy!
The Clutter-Free Classroom is having a “Let’s see your teacher bag linky party!” I love, love, LOVE my teacher bag! I got it on an after-Christmas trip to the outlet mall and was obsessed with the pink interior! I told my hubby I HAD to have the bag, since it was pink! He didn’t quite understand why I wanted a bag that I mainly liked the inside of, but that’s ok because it’s now my bag and I love it! AND as a bonus, I have been able to keep it much neater than my old teacher bag! I love the motivation that comes with getting new things! Here’s a peek inside:
My three FAVORITE books that I carry around with me everyday! Love them!
Notebook from one of my kiddos and notepad for all my random notes and to do lists
My Erin Condren teacher planner and life planner!!! These are AMAZING and make my planning so much more organized and colorful! AND right now the life planners & gift labels are 40% off!
Weekly planning section… Ahhh, isn’t it amazing?!
Thank you notes from our recent field trip… delivering these this weekend
Box of girl scout cookies that I bought from one of my kiddos for one of my trainers
and of course my computer
And that’s all! Still nice and clean [and it’s been 2 whole months]!
Back table for group work and meeting with students… this one turned out a little blurry, sorry!
CAFE board, genres, and reading corner
Front of the classroom with some wonderful [colorful!!] printables I found on pinterest.
Side view of the classroom… I LOVE all of the windows and the light they let in!!
[Spooky banner from Halloween… this picture must have been from October :)]

Of course they are now filled with lots of great books!
Thank you Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for the idea!
