Chalkboard Table & Class Sneak Peek

I have been working my tail off trying to get my classroom as ready as possible for next year!  We don't start back until August 12th, so you might be asking WHY?  Well, here it is....


We have spent a little over a year apart due to deployments.  The girls and I are anxiously awaiting his return.  We get to have him all to ourselves until August 7th and then another year apart begins.

I switched from your basic primary colors to brights this year.  My theme is polka dots with a splash of chevron.  I am loving all my great shopping finds and LOVE how my room is turning out.  Probably my favorite piece to this year's decor is this table!

My sister had this ugly, old brown coffee table at our garage sale this summer.  I decided I would take it because the wheels in my head were turning and I had a plan.  I painted that ugly table a fun color and painted the top with chalkboard paint.  This is the result!  What a fun Word Work table!!!  The circle in the center is a place for using dry erase markers.  To top it off, those three adorable chevron containers fit perfectly underneath.  They are filled with other Word Work materials.  I love it, love it, love it!  Hope the kiddos do too!

Here is another look at this area of my classroom.

I still have some work to do, like leveling and placing new books in library baskets and adding my new basket labels, but it is coming along nicely!!!  

Now, check out my little cuties having some summer fun!

Pony rides!

Can't forget the tutu!

At the beach!

Bathing beauties!

Enjoy what is left of summer!!!!
