Tour My 2014-2015 Classroom {Classroom 360 Photo Series: Pictures, Design Tutorials, Organization & Management Ideas}



















































I know many of you started your summer vacations many, many weeks ago. However, thanks to Elsa's eternal winter lots of snow days here in the northeast, we just ended the school year last Thursday. The upside is that it gave me plenty of time to get my classroom ready for the first day of school in September (we always go back after Labor Day).

Two summers ago I did a Classroom 360° Series here on the blog {click link to view all those pictures and posts} where I featured different areas of my classroom that had been made over for the new year. While I didn't make too many changes last year, I did do a fairly major makeover for the upcoming school year and am excited to share those with you.


Today's post is an overview of the new look in my classroom. Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing the details of each area and the changes that I made.

My goal was to create a learning environment that was colorful and welcoming when the students arrive on the first day of school, but that was also a "blank slate" that the children and I could use as a foundation to build upon together. It was also important to me that the space was streamlined, organized and functional without being overwhelming or visually cluttered.












To create the look in my classroom I used a combination of items from these Mix and Match Color Scheme Mega-Packets:
