Tackle It Tuesday - Back to the Schoolhouse


In honor of returning to school this week, my tackle is all about my classroom.

This is what it looked like yesterday morning...



This is what it looked like when I left yesterday afternoon...



My favorite part of the classroom are all the bright fabrics I have around. I think they send a message of fun and happiness to my students. What do you think? Do you think my new students will feel relaxed in the room?
Don't forget to visit 5minutesformom to see what everybody else is tackled this week.

  1. Wow Mel - what a transformation. It looks great. And what a big room. I know my son would have like you for his 3rd grade teacher. He starts 4th in two weeks

  2. An excellent transformation. I hope when the boy heads back to school in a few weeks time, his classroom is as fun as yours.
