Coming Back with the Sunday Scoop!

I've been a bad, bad blogger....
Not quite sure what happened in the month's of August and September, but it seems that I have completely neglected this little blog.
A comeback is much needed and I can't think of a better way than to kick it off with Teaching Trio's Sunday Scoop!

I've taken on a new teaching role this year... I have always taught self-contained classrooms, however this year I looped with my students and now teach 5th and 6th grade ELA in a middle school model! It has been so hard for me to wrap my head around the concept of switching classes. I only get them for 45 minute periods and it goes by so fast!!

Since I have most of the same students as last year, I wanted to change my room up for them. I didn't want last year's fourth graders to come into fifth grade feeling like they were still stuck in an elementary classroom. So I spent the summer working on some new decor, rearranging furniture, and organizing materials. I'm pretty thrilled with how it came out!

To put the icing on the cake... My SMART Board was installed this week!!! I'm so excited to use it!!!

Here's one of the quotes up on my wall. Soon the whole display will be available at my TpT store!

Thanks for taking a tour of my room! Don't forget to stop by the Teaching Trio for more Sunday Scoops!


  1. Your room look absolutely gorgeous! Wow. I think perhaps you had trouble finding time to blog because you were working so hard transforming your room and settling into your new position. So, I guess your dog likes to "devour" books, huh? Lol. I'm sure your fun new reading areas will make your students want to devour books, too. My cat keeps pulling my books off of the shelf, but he hasn't chewed any up yet. Have a great week.
