I've moved!

I'm still writing; you just won't find me here any longer. If you want to keep reading my writing, head over to mollyflinkman.com. I'll keep a cup of coffee warm for you.

word of the day: class \ˈklas\ high quality
My classroom is student ready.  My plan book isn't, but the room itself is ready to welcome new students with class.  Here's a sneak peek (moving clockwise):

DIY dry erase boards on either side of the magnet board.  All you need is a painted frame and scrapbook paper behind the glass.  Thanks Pinterest.com.

The reed diffuser is a must have in my classroom.  I went from Vanilla Cupcake last year to Island Hibiscus this year.  We'll see how it goes over.
I stole this idea from another teacher I know.  Haven't quite decided whether or not I'm going to leave the paper blank.  Thanks for your help, Katelyn!  Couldn't have made this without you!
The answer is: I'm not sure why I put black paper around my white board.  I do know that I like it.
My favorite corner of the room and I managed to take a blurry picture!  There is really a fish in the fishbowl.  His name is Doodle.
My favorite part of the room--Also Pinterest inspired.  Special thanks to Jake and Nate for cutting the boards and to Jake for nailing it all together.  Extra credit if you can tell me what stories all 10 settings belong to without Googling.
Pretty excited that I got to keep my chalkboard.
There you have it. My plan book may be blank at the moment, but my walls are brightly colored.  I hope that counts for something. :-)
