Five for Friday/Classroom Reveal
Link up time! Apparently the term is "Fraturday". But that's okay, I'm tardy on the subject matter too. This is a peek at room 10 with a few additions this year.
{1} Overview

{2}  Classroom Library "READ" Letters
I picked up these paper mache letters from JoAnn Fabrics and used some spray paint that I had on hand to create this fun addition to our library this year.  
It was super quick and easy!

{3} Cubbies
So, when did everyone start naming their child starting with "A"?  Way back when it was "J"!
All of the names are on and notes are in!

{4} Vintage Shelf Unit Make-Over
This old treasure is part of the original school furniture. That would make it 50+ years old! I just love the size, narrow depth and we all know that they don't make them like they used to. But, with some stains and chips on the Formica on the top, it needed a little make-over.  Gotta love chevron contact paper!  The unit now holds writing center supplies for the students.

{5} Fill'n our Buckets!
If you aren't familiar with this story, you need to be!  It has been a pleasure using this in my classroom!
In addition to all of our individual, invisible buckets, we have a visible classroom bucket which we all contribute to with visible drops.  Did you notice the drops hanging from the ceiling? 
 I cut the drops from foam that would fit the bottom of this bucket. I got both from JoAnn Fabrics.  When I notice something special going on in the classroom (individual or class) we add a drop to our bucket. When we fill the bucket, we will celebrate with a party!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend :)


  1. I like the idea of foam drops to fill your bucket. CUTE idea!!! I just got my Five for Friday up today too!! Life is too busy right now!
