Rock Star Classroom Tour!!!

Hello all!!! Oh my goodness it is hard to believe that we are already half way through September! Time is flying!! I have been meaning to post pictures of my classroom makeover!! Last year I went with the pirate theme and LOVED it. However, I love to craft, create, decorate, etc. so keeping my pirate theme again this year just didn't seem fun!! After spending most of the summer working on my new and improved rock star classroom, I have decided that I am going to force myself to keep the same theme for at least another year or two! So here is a tour of my newly decorated room!
This super cute record welcome sign hangs right outside of my classroom door. I posted about it over the summer- Click on the picture to download the letters for free!! :)
Here is a view of my classroom from the doorway
I painted my desk with chalkboard paint so the kiddos can practice their spelling words or work on math facts! LOVE!!!! :) - Also I covered the legs with zebra duct tape :) Did you notice the R.O.C.K.S. binders? They go perfectly with my rock star theme!!! :) They are from Abby at the Inspired Apple! Love them!!
Here is my birthday and star of the week bulletin board, located right next to my classroom door. The birthday display is from Katie at Little Warriors!! LOVE her!! :) 
Next to my birthday board is my whiteboard that I have turned into my word wall. Click on the picture to check out the word wall letters! :)
Above my word wall are my number posters 1-20. I made them to match my theme!! You can check them out by clicking here or on the picture.

This bulletin board is on the other side of my word wall. The writer's eye printables are from the First Grade Parade! They went perfect with my classroom decor!! :) I cannot remember where I downloaded the "What do I do now?" posters! However, they are super cute and if anyone knows where you can find them please let me know and I will add it to my post!!:) I also change out the little activities that are inside the colored folders to go with our themes.

Here is my behavior clip chart and classroom rules. Our entire school has the same rules and clip chart. I made mine like a guitar. I got this idea from Abby at The Inspired Apple :) This is also where my school found the words for our clip chart! The rules are from Whole Brain Teaching. My school gave each classroom the same set of rules posters, but I am not sure where they found them. :( Again, let me know if you do!!
This is my writing board- right now it houses our "four star writing" examples. I refer to this all the time when students are working during writer's workshop!! :)

I love my 1st Grade Rocks banner! It hangs above my Promethean board. I glued bulletin board letters onto bright poster board cut into triangles. Then I hot glued the triangles onto zebra ribbon. :)

Here is my finished math meeting board!! :) Above it says "main stage" I made this the same way I made my record welcome sign outside of my door! :) My friend Katie from the Little Warriors created the zebra themed months, days of the week and calendar numbers! SHE IS AWESOME!! Click here to grab your own copy!! :)

My cabinets are located at the back of my room. Each of the students have a zebra name tag with a clothespin glued at the bottom to display their work during the school year.

I spray painted the clothespins and then found a super cute rock and roll foam sticker pack at Michael's for 0.75!! Yay!!!!! :)

This ADORABLE wreath hangs outside of my classroom door!! :) My mom made the wreath- she totally rocks and is very crafty!!!! Then I hung a record from the center and glued the rock star clip art from Melonheadz Illustrating to the middle of the record!!! LOVE IT!!!!!

So what did you think!? Are you loving the rock star theme as much as I am? It just seems to make being in your classroom so much better when you love the decorations!! 

Thanks for checking out my room!! :)
