This was set to post last Sunday but for some reason it didn't - here it is a week late!
Remember when I told you about my theme for this year? Well, my first grade classroom is put together and I have incorporated my agriculture theme as best I could. Here is what my classroom looks like:
Bought this cute set at the dollar store a few years ago.
I went with brown paper and I really like it!
My favorite border - the food groups!
Our cubbies - we put books and white boards and anything that stays at school in here.
And they are labeled with our number on an apple.
Another board - Michael's mom did this (her name is Paula for the record) and I will hate when I cover it up with pictorials and charts and chants but that is what it is for. Thanks Paula!!
The border - only along the bottom.
A tree to represent forestry - another one of Paula's creations. Have yet to put leaves on it (my plan is for the kids to do it).
My job chart - cute overalls.
Another space for posters and the like.
And honey comb border.
We put our backpacks in the hall in these cubbies. They are labeled with cows - the dye cuts we have are cows with horns and udders so I cut the horns off.
Remember my idea for the hallway wall?
Here it is!! I LOVE it!!
I am going to add tractors with their names under each paper. Notice the row crops behind the green papers?
The border - bees.
This window was all Michael's sister's idea (Stacey) and I LOVE it!!

Bees made by Paula and lines drawn by Stacey.
There it is - how I brought agriculture into my classroom . . . I love the theme!! I did have trouble finding the borders I wanted but I am happy with the end result. Now that my students are surrounded with agriculture I am going to start teaching them about it.
What do you think?
