    Setting Up and Organizing Your Classroom, Part One

    It's overwhelming to see my normally organized classroom in disarray, but I love redesigning and decorating before school starts. Join me as I tackle setting up and organizing my classroom.

      Plastic tablecovers for bulletin board backgrounds. They are bright year to year without fading, and it saves some trees. Very economical, too! I've used fabric, but never thought to use a plastic tablecloth. Dummy me! ;o)

    This person's entire Flickr series is great. I really want to have engaging display boards like this and change my displays constantly. Gahhh so good.

    Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.

    Amazing how cool these trees look in the classroom. would be cool branched out across the ceiling over her students.

    This teacher got smart about her door decorations. Every teacher should have a recipe for success even if they are different.

    "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio ... Best. Book. Ever. It's a must read for every fourth, fifth, or sixth grader!

    This is a classroom helpers board, but I like the idea of using it as a home faith formation thing - each pocket is a category of prayer and each stick is a person you know and you can have a visual of who to pray for what (with elementary-aged kids). Maybe this would be overwhelming or maybe it would help visually organize your prayers. Just an idea...

    cooking theme idea - stirring up something - door decoration for fundraiser, etc.

    Taco 'bout a great class bulletin board idea...maybe change it to "taco 'bout a great book" and have students write book reviews on their taco

    I really like this as an art project idea for kids. Have them cut out leaves from different paper/magazines and have them find words that fit a theme for some of the leaves

    maybe something like this outside classroom for parents: great way to volunteer at home or in classroom??
