Chalkboard and Burlap Classroom…again

First week of school? Check. Great class? Check. I have a feeling this is going to be a GREAT year. Seriously. Maybe the best ever. Ever. I got bored watching a movie with Mr.Craftypants, so I made this little sign to go with my chalkboard and burlap decor.

Here’s a peek at what my room looks like now….the inside is exactly the same as last year (you can see that post here).

I updated my hallway bulletin board to match my little decor thing going on…I found the white fabric roses and little wood chalkboard flags/jute string at JoAnns and used a liquid chalk marker to write student names. 

As you can see, I left up my schedule, chalkboard quote globe, turn-in box and burlap bulletin border, but it appears I need to tighten up the fabric backing of our word wall 🙂 I’ll get right on that #promisespromises

And I framed this printable (that’s not burlap–it’s digital burlap paper…yes!) I made to go outside the room:

I’m finally embracing my boring self and although I really like seeing so many colorful and bright classrooms, this is really my style at home, so why not bring it to work? I’m there all.day.long. We’ll see if it stays up and for how long…who knows! If you are wanting a chalkboard theme room, click below to check out what I used:

    Thank you for the poster freebie. I love your ideas! I think that your neutral palette is great. It will make displays of anchor charts and student work stand out.
