Welcome to my Disney-Inspired 4th grade classroom!
I've always imagined of the day when I would get my first classroom. The theme was an easy decision, considering my love (obsession) with Disney. :) As a first year teacher teaching fourth grade, I was a little nervous that my students would think the theme was too baby-ish. The majority of the Disney classroom decor I came across at teacher stores was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse...and I knew that wouldn't go over well with 8 and 9 year olds (or maybe it would??) So, without further ado, here is a peek into my Disney classroom! :)
Here is a little peek at my open house theme! I've always though an UP theme would be perfect for open house. My AWESOME Mom made my students these cute treat bags, the UP house above my library, and the die-cut letters on the door. She rocks.
Since my classroom has tables instead of desks, I had to get creative with organization. I was able to use my room account to purchase these sunny yellow seat sacks for my student's chairs! This is the perfect place for them to store their library books, readers response journal, folders, and personal whiteboards. I love how they just brighten up the room!
I'll be honest. I don't even use this board for classroom jobs. I ended up assigning wayyy more jobs than I could fit on this board. Therefore, it's basically just for decoration. I may eventually turn it into a STEAM board, but for now, I'm keeping it as is. Also, I LOVE the labels I found on my holy-grail favorite website. None other than TeachersPayTeachers.com of course! They match perfectly with my decor and are so stinkin' cute. :) The blue crates pictures to the right of the supplies center houses each tables textbooks.
One of my most time consuming but favorite projects in the classroom are my little Mickey students tubs on the blue shelf to the right of the Qomo panel (T.V lookin' thing) I ordered these bins from the dollar store, and then cut out Disney paint samples to get the Mickey labels. My student's store their composition notebooks & supplies in them, and they actually keep them fairly neat! (miraculous, I know!)
I found some more awesome labels on none other than TPT, and those four 3-drawer containers are where I keep all of my copies for the week, organized by day of course!
I'll be honest, my teacher desk area is the one spot in my room that I don't love. I am unsure of what to put on the wall above the two white bookshelves. Anything I have put there just hasn't looked right. I'm thinking maybe another bulletin board? However, I LOVE this little gray rug I picked up from walmart. It was only $12, and makes the space much homier & matches my lamp. :)
I think every teachers favorite area of their classroom is their library. I am using the same bins purchased from the dollar store that my students are using to store their supplies. I love my little library, but am definitely on the hunt for more books to fill those shelves!
Thank you for touring my classroom!! These pictures we taken before the first week of school, so of course, it is not nearly as neat or clean. However, I am so excited to have my room filled with 22 sweet kiddos each day.
