Welcome To My Art Room!!!

I wanted to give you a peek into my classroom(well, at least what it looked like last year...the theme was green). This year's classroom is still in progress. I like to change my room up every year. I have the fabric for my bulletin boards on a 5 year rotation so the kids won't see the same thing twice...well...unless they fail. I use color themes for the fabric & my room: Primary Colors, Secondary Colors, Warm Colors, Cool Colors, and Green. I hand make my letters, boarders, and other such things every year. I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I really enjoy doing it! Cutting paper is like therapy for me. I believe in being extremely organized(a little OCD). So if any of you have some questions or need some tips on organization just let me know. As soon as I finish up my room(which hopefully will be by the end of next week), I'll post those photos too! I'll try to get some wider views so you can get the big picture! If you have any questions about anything.... please ask!


  1. Hi! Love the new site! Question: what do you use the pockets on the board for?

  2. Hey Kathleen..I hope you come back here to get the answer to your question!!! I clicked on your name but it didn't have an e-mail for me!! :o) The pockets are a part of my behavior system for my room. Blue is a great day, Red is a Ok day, and Yellow is not a good day. I give the teacher a star for her records, and I place a stick in the class pocket. At the end of the 9 weeks I post to top classes in each grade level!! :o)
