A Class*y Cruise...Around the Classroom Linky! & Giveaway

I am linking up with

for the

I am very excited about this linky party because I switched school this year so I had an entirely new classroom to decorate!  I have done an ocean/beach themed room for the majority of my years teaching.  I did an up north/camping themed room when I taught 3rd grade which went very well with studying Michigan.  But last year I decided on a MSU/sports themed room and decided to do it again this year!  :)

This is a view of my calendar area.  My new magnetic whiteboard is very weak.  If anyone has a suggestion for a good place to buy reasonably priced strong magnets, please let me know:)  I am so excited to have a real classroom rug this year for my first time ever!

I am loving all of the storage in my new room!  With having to store two grades (1st and 2nd grade), I need it!

This is a view of my library and tables.  The word wall is one I made (baseballs and basketballs) and can be purchased in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
I am also loving having 5 computers for the kids and one at my desk!  The one thing that I am missing is a kidney shaped table for guided reading/guided math (and I can't get one).  If anyone has any pointers as to how to best teach those, I'd greatly appreciate it!

In celebration of my new sports themed room, I am offering to giveaway anything sports related in my store to the first two people who comment with their e-mail and their sports product choice from my store to this post.

Well, I hope that you liked your tour of my new room!  I am looking forward to school starting on Tuesday!  :)


  1. Your room is spacious and well put away!!!!
    I love the Sports Themed End of Year Memory Book!!!

  2. I love how much room you have in your classroom. Nothing looks crammed in or overcrowded and you have room for so many different areas.

    I love your Football Math: Partner games. They would really motivate some of my boys (and even some of my girls)!
