Calendar Wall

Classroom pictures are coming soon.  Today I finished the calendar wall.  I made all the labels, ran them through the laminator, cut them out, and started putting everything together.  I also have white Christmas lights strung across the top.
Library Pockets for place value to the billions
Clocks for time to the hour, half hour, and quarter hour
Flip the card for the month, the day and the date
Balance for numbers are equations
Ways to write a number
Deposit and Measurement
Specific place for anchor charts
 Other responses for "I Don't Know" from Simply 2nd Resources
and a nice pic of my brother and I:-)
Target Wall-I use a dry erase board and write the targets for the week.  Chart for the daily schedule.
Target pocket chart...cut in half and bordered.
I keep all the calendar supplies in the same place.  (Although this box is currently a bit of a mess.)
A polka dotted piggy bank for the daily deposit.

And now onto a completely random train of thought....
Has anyone seen this cuteness?  It is a fairy door.  I pinned it a long time ago and really thing my classroom needs one.  It is possible I have been obsessing about it for a good portion of the summer....trying to convince my handy cousin or uncle to make one for me.  Then I started looking for online diy fairy door.  They are everywhere....and in Ann Arbor they are all over and even get decorated for holidays.  (My BBF friend, Jenny over at Owl Things First is in Michigan maybe she has checked out the craziness!)  I can only imagine the writing and fun that one of these would create!  (Like Elf on the Shelf all year long!)  Oh the possibilities!

Happy Saturday,


  1. I love the border around the pocket smart are you??!!

  2. I love your alternatives to "I don't know!" :)


    1. I wish I could take credit for them. But they are very useful.

  3. I love the purple pocket chart with the border around it. I never saw one of those at Target. I'll have to see if they still have them. Your room looks great! I haven't even started my room or even gone into school. I'm going to have to work hard!

  4. I love your calendar wall. It looks fantastic. What's a daily deposit?
    How adorable is that fairy door?!

    1. I have a bank that we add money to. Then we add the new deposit to our previous amount.

  5. Hi, I am your newest follower. You're classroom is looking amazing! Lattes and Laughter

  6. Your classroom looks great. My sister lives in Ann Arbor! I'm going to ask her about those. I think I need one, too. I think my husband would have fun making these. Do you want one?! What color? Would you put them on the inside of your classroom somewhere, or in the hall by your doorway? You've got me sooo excited I might be able to keep my eyes open 15 more minutes!
