Classroom Reveal.... a few months too late!! (Freebie & Giveaway)

So being home on maternity leave, leaves me with not very many blogging ideas...  So I went back through my photos I've taken when I WAS in class and realized I hadn't done my classroom reveal yet. Yes, I know its now mid October and all of the classrooms are now set up, but alas - I'm revealing anyways - so deal with it! :)  I hope you like what you see.  I LOVE my room and love making it as colorful as possible.  My philosophy is if I have to spend 7+ hours there each day, I might as well like looking at the walls!  Here's my room!

This is the back wall, standing at the doorway.  

Entire room standing at the doorway.

This is my 'reading garden'.  I have my books organized by genres and authors.  

The right is a 3 drawer organizer backed up to our ipod cart.

Guided Reading Area - I LOVE my dry erase board table!

What do ya think?  I love it!!!  Let me know if you have any questions about anything.  I didn't go into much detail about each section so I'd be happy to explain something in more detail if you want me to.  I can't wait to get back there. I love being here but teaching is definitely a part of me and I miss it terribly.  

So this post wouldn't be complete without an amazing freebie.  My friend Annie just opened her TPT store - literally as I'm typing this blog!  She uploaded her freebie, which is an adorable Roll & Write Halloween activity - perfect for October centers!!!  I would LOVE it if you could give her a big TPT welcome and go download her her freebie.  (Click the photo)  She would love it too if you'd follow her - I know she's going to be putting a lot of great work very soon and you don't want to miss out!!  Make sure to leave her some feedback as well!  

And to top it all off - make sure to hop over to my blog - Adventures of Room 129 - to enter my Birthday Blowout Giveaway!!!  I'm giving away a $25 TPT gift card, a $30 shopping spree, and over 20 amazing sellers have donated products that YOU could win!  Make sure to check it out!!

So I can't leave without showing off these amazing little ones.  Aren't they adorable!?  They are my loves...  I hope you're having a great October!  Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know how you're doing!  


  1. First of all, congrats on your new addition. It is most certainly a cuteness overload!! Secondly, your room is amazing. How exciting it must be to go in every morning!! Thirdly, on your guided reading table you have a mini chart did you make that? I have cards like that and wanted a small holder, but need a bit of inspiration to create it! Thanks...and enjoy the rest of your maternity leave!! Pam

    1. There are directions on pinterest for them. You just use pvc pipes and joints.

  2. Dry erase board table?!?!?! Sweeter words have never been said. How did you do that?! As a first year teacher, I'm always on the lookout for amazing classroom set-up ideas. If I could have my ideal classroom, your set-up would be my inspiration. I love all of the colors!

  3. Love your room, Ciera!!! It looks huge!! I am 100% with you...if I'm going to be in that room for majority of my day, I might as well enjoy it! :)
