    1. Those are a Carson Dellosa set. I wouldnt suggest putting them
      Up with Velcro though. Magnets would be better I believe. I did make my own. The pictures on the tree were purchased from TPT. Email me and I can send you a link.

  25. Absolutely adore your room!!! So organized, colorful, and inviting!!! I am so doing the crate idea! I teach 4th graders but we are self contained...the crates will be nice for some extra storage. How'd they hold up for you? One student per crate or two???

    Your room is so cute and I am feeling inspired. We have a new building, new room and I wanted to do an owl theme, but I was stumped. Thanks for the inspiration, you did such a great job. I was wondering about the crates you use for cubbies, did I read correctly.... do you put them in the hallway? Just wondering how that worked out for you. Did the kids knock them down since they were stacked like that? Thanks again! :)

    1. Great!!! I'm so glad my room could help! Love knowing that others are getting ideas!!! They are from Walmart $3.00neach. Yes they are in the hallway and eye are actually screwed into the wall via boards. We screwed them into 2x4s and screwed those to the walls!! Super sturdy!

  32. I am doing the crate cubbies this year. I read how you attached them to the board and wall. However, How did you attach them stacking on each other. Have you had problems with regular sized bookbags fitting?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I didn't personally attach them to the wall myself. I will have to look to see how they are stacked. The other teacher's son-in-law did them for us. I have had NO problems unless its a rolling book bag. Which those aren't allowed anymore!!

  49. Hi Elizabeth! Teacher to teacher, I just wanted to help you out a bit. If you want your polk-a-dot lettering to show up better, mount each letter or word with black. Also, I just have to mention (as a friend) that you have a few typos. ;/ Sorry, but as an educator, I thought you would want to know! *** EX: View of my Desk. The Letters are hard to read. The bulletin board by my desk has calendar, menu, news, snack calendar anew ill have pictures of my husband and I up.*** "and will," "have pictures of my husband and me (or myself)" ***Fabric Make shift board.*** "all caps or all lowercase" ***Word Wall CAbinet*** "cabinet" ***There are lots of incomplete sentences. If you want to just label things, there's no need for punctuation. *** With only love... :) I really enjoyed seeing your room! It is beautiful, and your students are lucky to have you in such a fun and happy place! Have a fantastic year!

  56. This is my first year teaching, and I am teaching 5th grade. I love your student folders! I am trying to figure out a way to organize my students papers. Could you tell me where you got your hanging student folders? And if you did not buy them, could you tell me how you made them? This looks like something that would be perfect for what I am trying to do. Thank you so much for publishing this!
