Back To School With Boho Birds!


I've worked really hard on my classroom this summer and am proud to show off the results!  I don't know about you other teachers, but I can't sit in a messy room and plan.  I have to have all the room stuff done before I can start on the paperwork! 
I have my lights off or partially off a lot of the time when teaching.  I decided to add some white lights and a bit of coordinating fabric around my board.  I love how it turned out!


I found these two sayings on pinterest and decided to make my own to match my theme.  I am using the Boho Birds collection from Carson Dellosa.  It's new this year and there are TONS of cute pieces.  I usually purchase mine straight from the company or the School Box.



I like the big chunky letters that coordinate.  This year they also offered these stickers that you can customize.  I used those on my bins and a few other places, too.   My students turn in their finished work in those bins based on their homeroom teacher.  This saves me so much time!


I use the big bulletin board for school news and all that stuff that has to be posted like mission statement, evacuation plan, and grading scale.  The smaller whiteboard is for long and short term assignments.  There are two clipboards on the wall for extra copies of assignments for anyone who was absent.


Here's front of my room and my calendar and birthday board.  I like the tree in the corner.  I did owls last year and it was already up there from another set.  I just changed it our with some cute bird and birdhouse accents - good to go!  I ordered my gorgeous red chevron curtains from this etsy shop.


My desk has my favorite family photos on the front.  I also have a little board with some really important things (for me!) on there.  Just like my lights around the board, I love having a lamp on my desk!


My favorite bulletin board from last year got a little Boho Bird update and moved to a different area of the room.  I loved the words so much that I needed them up for another year.  Kids need to hear this stuff!


I fixed up this little arrangement beside my closet door.  I'll have a photo shoot on the first day of school and add all of their pictures.  They always LOVE this!  My back wall is all storage and computers.


Even the hallway is Boho Birds!  I really wanted my little area to look bright and cheery - even with the door closed.  I ordered my porcupine teacher name from an etsy shop that is no longer open and the vinyl lettering from this one.  They are so unique and I've gotten tons of compliments from the other teachers!
I left a space in the center of my hallway board for a class picture from our first day photo shoot.  All the kids' names got a great big first letter on the Boho Birds name tags.


Here's what it looks like when you first walk through the door.  Bring it on, 5th and 6th grade science!  I'm ready for you!

I have tons of owl stuff I'm using from last year. But I LOVE the Boho birds. I'm going to make my outside bulletin board this theme.
