So recently I've been creating little things for my classroom. Yep, even though I have no idea what grade I'll be teaching...or if I'll even have a job in August...but I like to be prepared. I guess you could say I'm a little excited about getting my own classroom. Just a little bit.

Anyways, like the blog post says, Chevron. Chevron everywhere. I downloaded some chevron paper and I've been going crazy with it. My behavior clip chart is chevron. My "Where are you?" board (idea from Second Grade Style/Pinterest) is chevron. All my teacher organization binder covers? Chevron. That's all I've made so far because I don't want to get too specific since I don't know what grade I'll be teaching. Why is chevron so appealing? I hope it's still "in style" in August?!?! Does anyone else have a chevron addiction like me?

Also, I want to get a laminator. Most schools have them in the teacher's lounge or workroom but I think it would best to have one that I could keep in my classroom or even bring home if I wanted to. I've been eyeing this one. It has good reviews and it's only $30. Any of you teachers have any experience with it?


  1. I love a theme! I'm going for a Jungle Theme myself. In 11 years, I've never had a theme to coordinate everything. But, I'm starting now to gather things for next year. Best of luck in your job search!

  2. Jungle-themed classrooms are so cute! My cooperating teacher during my internship had an owl-themed classroom and I loved it! I think I'm going to go with a chevron-owl-bright colors-theme! :)

  3. Natalie you are going to love teaching! You blog is adorable and I can't wait to read all of your adventures. I followed you today. I am lucky number 10. Soon you will be at 100 :0)
    Keep us posted!
