Final Class Pics and First Day Jitters

Wow this week has been crazy busy.  I have not even had a moment to blog stalk.  Blog stalking will still have to wait because I am heading to the beach this morning to enjoy my last little bit of summer break.  The first day of school is tomorrow.  I met most of my students at meet the teacher last Thursday evening and they seem very sweet.  My parents seem really involved as well, so that is always a plus!  I am so excited about my classroom this year.  I made a few change and moved some furniture around as well as added many new great ideas from Pinterest and blogs.  I want to thank all my bloggy friends for being such an inspiration to me.  Here are the final classroom pictures.  My husband laughs at my classroom because he says it's very "Jerseylicious" and I say it's perfect then! I'll let you guys decided, what do you think of my classroom make-over?

(View from the back corner of my room)

 (my new guided reading area) Check out the seat crates!  I added ribbon to each of my seat crates to help with easy assess.  
 (my teacher desk and ABC center.  TV center is cut off a little bit but that is what the big red thing is next to my desk)  I absolutely love my TV center.  The students watch different learning videos, usually from leapfrog.

Hope you like my classroom because the fire Marshall did NOT.  He told me "No more on the walls!"  I smiled and nodded and rolled my eyes a little when he left.  Shhh.....LOL.

Here are some new things I created for my classroom.
 Love this idea from Pinterest.  This is my friend's daughter.  She just got here drivers license and she stopped by my classroom to brag. Oh and ask for my car...LOL.  She wants to buy my Nissan Altima.  
 I found this idea from Pinterest too!  So easy to create and I love that all I have to do is move a clothes pin when students change their transportation home.  I will be posting this on TpT later.  
This is not new this year but I wanted to post anyway to show everyone my word wall.  I call it my word vine.  I have to add a title but just have not gotten around to do that yet.  
Back to School Jitters Linky Party

Lastly, I am linking up with A Turn to Learn to discuss those first day jitters.  I am a little late to the party but here goes nothing...
