What's Your Room Look Like? (And a Freebie from a Reader!)

So this year I moved school districts!  Walked into a teachers dream room... full furniture from Lakeshore including a 4 piece kitchen, big book shelf, water table, and multiple cubby sets.  I am so overwhelmed that I don't even get started!

Here is what I am working with...    

For three days I just rearranged and rearranged.  It's hard to have so much space!  (Oh the problems some people have!)

One of our readers, Jillian Scroggins wanted to post her before shot too... so here is what she is working with!  I look forward to seeing what magic she will work in the next few weeks!  I will post her her after picture when she is done so you all can see!

If any other readers want to join... email me at jenp761@gmail.com and I will post yours too!  

Another great reader, Tonya Richards shared with me her labels that she uses to organize her manipulatives.  There are 10 pages of labels!  (The parenthesis are to put your name or the schools name to signify whose manipulatives they are... great thinking!)  She has said I can share those too and so click the picture to grab your FREE set too from my TpT store!  Thanks Tonya!

All you fellow bloggers have really inspired me with all your organization and ideas.  I thought it would be a good help for me and for all of our readers to see how you set things up in your rooms!  So no matter your grade level, please link up and show off your amazing spaces!  And again, if any readers want to link up too just email me and I will share!  

Head over to TBA to see other great Linky Parties!

Thanks and enjoy your day!



  1. Yay! I am so excited for you that you got an awesome room especially with how worried you've been! I can't wait to bring the kids by to see it. Next Tuesday?? I bought a bunch of new stuff to change over our classroom at home today. Can't wait to put it all up. :)

  2. I linked with my mess of a room and where I am starting from! I'll take some more pictures as the room progress! =) Good luck
