Open House Classroom Tour

Phew! Our first five day week coupled with Open House Night made for one very tired teacher! At least Open House was on Thursday night so we only had Friday to get through to make it to the weekend. The hot mess my class was yesterday can probably be explained by the number of kids who stayed up late eating pizza with babysitters while their parents came to visit! Since my classroom was in tip-top shape for the big night, I thought it would be a good time to share some pics of my home away from home.  Take a peek:

My secret to an "Open House-Ready" Classroom - shove everything that doesn't have a home yet under your desk where the parents can't see it!

Well, there you have it - my little corner of the world. I've tried to make it a warm, cozy place where we can learn and laugh, and hope that it makes the kids smile each morning when they walk through the door.  Can't ask for more than that...

Have a great night!


  1. Thanks for sharing pictures of your classrom. It looks so inviting and fun! Have a great year! Amber ~ Kindergarten Rocks Blog

  2. Your room looks awesome! I love all the cupboards above the cubbies...great storage and a perfect place for the word wall! Thanks for sharing :)


  3. Your room looks great, so colorful but not overboard! I wish I had your storage that must be nice to have a place to put everything even if it is under your desk. Thanks for making it real! What type of adhesive do you use to keep everything up on the walls?

    1. Thanks Sue! If my principal asks, I only use sticky tack, I swear! But I've heard (wink, wink) that clear packing tape stays up all year!

  4. LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing! Hope you are having a very restful weekend :)

  5. I lllllove your room! What did you use to make the jeeps? Is that Mickey Font on the cricut? I love the name class sign. I made it last year after seeing yours. Do you have any tips on printing...when I made it and sent it Sams to be a poster it was a lot of white and small amount of names...

    1. Kelly,
      If you email me I'll send you the png I used so you can see the ratio of white to names that I used when I had it enlarged. As for the name jeeps, I was a total slacker and just used Trend cut out letters...


  6. I love your Class Sign! How did you make it?

    Thanks for sharing pictures of your room!


  7. LOVE the jeeps...and your room is amazing, as usual!

  8. Thanks for the tour of your classroom. I just pinned your clock display but I love so many different parts of your room. Have a great school year.

  9. What a beautiful room! So much attention to detail with the flowers on the little drawers for paperclips, post-its, etc... Amazing!!!

  10. I love your classroom! How did you cover your reading table with the fabric?? Did it hold up all year?
