My Classroom (Before & After)

I've been promising some before and after classroom pictures.  Here we go.

This is what I walked in to find:
 An empty room that was wet all over the floor around the air conditioner.  No students desks, chairs, or computers.  The stuff you see piled up was later picked up by the teacher who had my room last year.  The teacher desk had NO DRAWERS and one of the legs was falling off.  No joke.  

 Well, it's come a long way baby! 

Here's my cutie patootie monster on my classroom door made by Lisa, my amazingly talented and ridiculously patient friend.  (Seriously, if you all only knew what she puts up from me on a daily basis...)
 Isn't he perfect? We are Murray's Monsters by the way.  Not mean, get you in the night, monsters.  Just sweet, cuddly, furry first grade monsters.  There is a big difference.
 (The door needs a serious paint job.)

Here are a few other pictures from inside the room.  

 One of our little Five Senses activities (Thanks Pinterest!)
 Part of our word wall (this is not a good picture of it though). 
 Our Common Core standards board with "I Can" statements

 I really don't think any of these pictures show the room that well, but at least it gives you an idea of where I hang out every day!
Hope you had a good day!
