Happy Monday, friends! I'm sharing my classroom decorating progress today. I spent a ton of time working in my room yesterday and I'm happy with my progress even though there's still a TON left to do! 

Earlier this summer I was in Target with my mom and we thought about using paper plates for border. I liked the way this turned out, so we decided to try napkins. I had a few questions about this on Instagram...I unfolded the napkins once and laminated them and THEN cut them out. I wondered if this would work and it was fine!


Shelving the books was a job! I have them all on the shelves, but not organized...which will be an even bigger job!

I ran out of steam and couldn't finish this display lol. That's what tomorrow is for!

I'm happy with the future comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar board, but it took FOREVER to put up! So glad that's done!

Someone asked about these book shelves. I DO NOT recommend them. They are the cheap ones form Target/Walmart. I really wanted new ones this summer, but I'm trying to make do with these until some classroom money becomes available. I patched up the broken shelf myself! :)

I got these two rugs at Ollies and they are HUGE! They were $36 each and I'm so loving them! I wish the color was a little brighter, but beggars can't be choosers! lol

Beach mat found at Ross. I LOVE using beach mats in classrooms because they hold up really well and are inexpensive (compared to actual rugs!) 

That's all for now! I'm off to make bulletin board titles and charts! :)
