First Day of School!

AhhH! It's finally here!! The first day of school is TOMORROW!!! I've got my room set up, my lessons prepared, and my outfit for the first day hung on the door and ready to put on! I feel
like this day has been years in the making and I'm ready to just get on with it! Time to meet the kiddos and get started on a fun and successful first year! I really am not that nervous. I learned a lot during my classroom experience last semester, so I am not stressing. There are a few 2nd and 3rd year teachers that I know that are freaking out more than I am. Anyway, so now.... for the big reveal!! Here are some pictures of my classroom that I spent many dollars and many man hours perfecting!

But first, a few before pictures, so you can see what I had to work with:
I couldn't have done it without lots of help from my mom and Mason's mom who came up to school to help me. Here is Mason's mom helping me construct my word wall:
The finished product, WELCOME to Miss C's 6th Grade Math Class! :)
(Had to have some love for my Longhorns. I have the UT football schedule displayed in my room, each game UT wins they will get a reward...I am brainwashing them ;)
(Our school theme this year is "A League of Champions, Equipped for Exemplary". My champion wall is where I am going to hang classwork and also Benchmark scores, homework challenges, etc..)
And that's it! :) Soo excited to get started! Now I just have to try and get some sleep tonight!! I plan on watching Grease 1 (and maybe also 2). It is a tradition I have, that I started when I was in high school. I always watch them the night before school starts! Ok, well I will check back in soon to tell you all how it went! Wish me luck! :)

  1. Wow! I think it looks great - esp for a middle school classroom! All of my middle school classrooms were completely boring and without any charm whatsoever. Your's is full of it!

    Good luck! Tomorrow is the only "first" first day you'll ever have - enjoy it!

  7. Love the Miss Chatteron sign! Too cute! You're going to be so relieved when tomorrow is finally over! So much planning for this one day. :) I'm glad you're not stressed too much. (I'm so ready for this year to be over!)

  8. It looks like education heaven! I am so jealous... here in Oz we don't have our own classrooms, we have to move resulting in poor displays, no regualr table plans and dirty boards. In the UK (where I'm from) we had our own classroom and it makes such a difference! I have put one or two displays up but secondary school teachers don't seem to have the resources to see all this through!

    Good luck with your new class :-)
