New Parts of my Classroom and a Flash Giveaway ENTER NOW

I have been up to my school about 3 days since last week.  It is my last week of freedom. :(
I do enjoy setting up my room though.  I am adding some new things to go with my décor from last year.  I took a few pictures today.  These are some new aspects of my Hollywood/Movie themed classroom.  I used this theme last year but I wanted to come up with some more ideas to make it even better.  I am enjoying what I see so far.
Color Words Display
I cannot take credit for this display.  Can you believe this was in my bucket of Hollywood themed goodies I bought off of Craigslist?  I really hit the jackpot.  This teacher had so much neat stuff to add to everything I already had.  I love how the color display turned out.  I gave a new teacher my color cats that I had from years ago.
Newly Painted Shelf and Popcorn Buckets
Thanks to my daddy I have a newly painted red bookshelf.  I lovvvvvvvvvvveeee it!!! It really makes a difference.  I got the popcorn buckets from Dollar Tree.  My craigslist pal gave me a ton of them as well.
Student Work Display
I will use this board to display work on the inside of the classroom.
Reading Center
I bought these pillows from Oriental Trading.  I am in the process of finding some chairs to put them in.  I want the chairs so the students can get comfy.  Any ideas of where I can get some chairs????
Student of the Week Display
I bought these All About Me movie themed posters from Joann Craft Store.  I love them!  I did the first one on myself.
Locker Cubby Tags
I got new ones.  Last year I used popcorn buckets.  I got these new clapboards from my favorite store.  The Dollar Tree.
How We Go Home Display
I made these signs myself! Yay me!  I found the movie themed ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I had to get it!
School Maps Display
I got these giant clapboards from my craigslist pal too.  I decided to put our school maps in them because they have to be displayed by the door.  Luv it!!!
I hope you love these new additions to my room as much as I do!!!
Be on the look out for more to come.  I have a lot to do.  Wish me luck!

  2. Love the room! New room and new grade level for me this year. I am anxious to get in and start unpacking but can't have access to my room until the 5th. Everyone comes back for week of PD and meetings on the 12th so I won't have much time... YIKES!

  3. Have you checked Target for chairs? I saw some cute ones in there not to long ago. Your room looks really great!

  6. Love the new additions to your room. Check IKea, Big Lots, Amazon or even craig list again. I especially love the pillows. Wishing you well this year.

  7. Very cute theme! I have never been able to pull off a true classroom theme that really showed throughout the whole room. I tried a beach theme and then kind of a "around the world" theme. Now I mostly just go with rainbow colors because I color code everything.


  8. Your room is looking AMAZING Mrs. Reed! I love it!!!

  10. I'm changing my classroom theme this year to a movie theme, so your pictures were very helpful. I want to copy your popcorn bucket book bins, so I'll be on the lookout for them. Thanks for the great ideas and pictures! Glad to be a follower!
