Welcome to Pirate's Cove!

Classroom photos linky party? Yes please! TBA is having a party here and I couldn't wait to join in.

Open House was tonight, therefore my classroom looks the best it will look this year RIGHT now. Not that I don't love having my students in the classroom, but we all know they can wreck havoc on a neatly organized classroom at times.  Lots of pictures follow...

My classroom library (the zebra print rug was leftover from my jungle theme I had the past three years).

Close-up of the sign and the "netting" in the "cove" created by my sister.

Our behavior cards (and our pirate book by the lovely Deanna Jump). Ignore the ugly white boxes. Had to cover up my kiddos names. 

Classroom view from the front of my room (ignore the "snails" on the desks.) 

The students' bag of gold and "homework."

Books for the first day/week of school.

Work Board
 View from the other side of the room. 

Hall passes and Writing area (notice the cute bottle of sanitizer... I got that as a gift today from one of my new sweeties).

My teacher area. Got rid of my desk that collected junk and took up space. I think I'm going to love this set up... and yes I have a binder issue. I love them.... and no, they will not stand up on my shelves. It drives me CRAZY!

A few framed posters I found online. 

Station board and Math Wall. The baskets on the table were for Open House and the multiple forms parents have to fill out before they can leave.  (Random tidbit - After the first 15 minutes of Open House tonight, our power went off for about 15-20 minutes. Thank goodness my classroom has windows so were weren't completely in the dark!)

The outside wall and sign-in table. 

My banner in the hallway. The first grade hall is called "Frog Freeway," hence the frog on my banner. 

I met my kids tonight and love them already. I just know it's going to be a great year :o)

It looks great! I have binder issues too, ha! They are just so much easier than file folders though.

I have a pirate theme classroom too! Where did you get the letters that say "Work Stations" and "Ahoy Mateys" in the hallway?
