Published by Darron Toy on

miss may here one five teacher it has been a minute since I have recorded in this classroom it's just so difficult guys because I teach in an open concept school I did a video about that link up here and in the description box but it makes it difficult to record because you hear so many outside noises coming in you know other teachers talking students it's just a lot and it's very hard to record and it makes it difficult so I haven't been able to record because I haven't been getting here early or staying late I've been coming when I'm supposed to and leaving at the end of the day just how I feel but anyway I'm gonna give you guys this classroom tour and what I plan to do is just do a voiceover for you guys so that you don't hear the background noise so I hope you enjoy I hope your school year has been amazing so far anyway enjoy the video and I will talk to you very soon if you have any questions I'm in the comments below cuz you know I will get back to you as soon as I can hugs and blessings don't forget to always pray cuz you know God will always make a way and I'll see you soon bye guys okay guys so if you're looking and coming this is how you come into my classroom and this

years past and then here we have an elf on the shelf and then there's some nice motivation keep me motivated over here you'll notice this is where my kiddos turning their finished work so when they're finished with something their finished items go in here I've used that for a while now and I love that system this is the feed me box tops cherish camp I had one of my kiddos their aunt made this for

when they're finished with work instead asking me 1,100 times what do I do now I love that system this is our bucket filler just a nice reminder for us this is our first year the week board every week we have a new first e and we give the spotlight to them and then guys this is that wood paper but your paper that's been really popular I absolutely love it and will will use it again I'll do it again next year up here at the top more melonhead's and then this is our theme for the school year throw kindness like confetti that will be in my store guys in the next couple of days here our birthday bags I like to recognize every kiddos birthday and as you can see this is the birthday back cover and then they have their own little birthday stick that they get to take home at the end of the year that says their birthday that's in my store as well and it's edible this is our Rolly cart for a whole group my director's chair anchor chart paper this is where I do my whole group lessons another

Hardware and those labels are in my store as well a parent created this for me last year prayer changes everything and it really truly does I'm just some little knickknacks and then here we have my library this you know that's how I label my books book bin and then the number and those books go in that specific number love how I do that system now this is the caring table and these are my kiddos in their name plates with their name holders love the name holders morning work I usually don't do morning work all the time but this morning I did and then we move over here you'll notice this my reading side this is my math side this is the back of my classroom and then we have camping chairs here small group table guys I'm so disappointed in these oh no boy no last year I bought him off Amazon and they were great and they were amazing this year I bought them on eBay and I can't remember where but oh not good my pile of mess you see there need to organize and then over here these are just my lessons things that I need for lessons Monday through Friday nice neat organized my kiddos portfolios and then over here I just keep a little reminder of my favorite little humans my niece and two nephews keep me motivated give God all the glory nice reminders and then over here we have my math rotation board this was created by Amy grows back the animated teacher love that a few of my anchor charts and then this little table here is basically my little desk area from my lap my work laptop I don't have a desk anymore which I'm glad I don't and this works just fine for me so then over here we have our rules whole-brain teaching and basically their whole burn teaching except for this last one it says let's keep each other happy instead I keep your dear teacher happy we need to keep you keep each other happy another part of my library more books nice and labeled and organized at the top here it says a happy place I consider my class from a very happy place this is my word wall and this is located in my TPT store as well but this is my word wall we just have fab and fancy words it's edible so you can type in whatever word you need simple to the point I just like it looking nice and clean look looking and IKEA rakhi IKEA rug and this is another table that holds yoga balls this just has regular chairs this table has the picnic benches this table has a bench and on the other side is storage for more books that I absolutely love and the kiddos love this bench too and then on the other and this right here is a Christmas activity twelve days of kindness freebie on TPT I can't think of the name of the seller but it's awesome IKEA stools are at this table the kiddos love sitting high and then this is an Ikea pencil and so this is my room as a whole from one side of the classroom and then back there is just another classroom this is my small group Terry area and then just another stool or IKEA rolling carts or actually target rolling card I'm sorry and then this is my room from this angle just kind of let you look at it slowly you know it's not huge but it's cozy and it's happy and that's what counts for me I named every table something kind so this is the nice table this over here is the love table this one over here is the hugs table and this table over here is the kind table I just like me I just chose the name on that way and there's the front the side again guys that was my classroom tour for this 2017-2018 school year next year should be a lot different because we have to take everything home this summer because our school is being remodeled so that's going to be exciting but um like I said pretty much the same a little bit of changing like seating and and colors but overall it's still the same still a happy cozy place so hope you guys enjoyed and I will see you soon love you so much bye

Thank you all for your kindness and support. It's important for my classroom to have a cozy, warm, loving, and happy feel to it. As teachers, we don't know what our students are going home to. It doesn't matter how rich, poor, background, etc. Nobody is exempt from problems. My goal is for my Firsties to be happy learners. ((Hugs)) and Blessings

Monica Johnson · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

Ms. May I absolutely love your room. I am a new teacher and you have taught me so much and have given me so many useful ideas. I was wondering where you get your melon head characters? I too would love to decorate full length characters on my classroom wall. I have searched TPT and have only found some that look old, not so up-to-date and stylish like yours does. I was wondering if you sell them? Thank you so much for all that you're doing. I truly appreciate YOU!! Peace & Blessings!!!!

Larry Drain · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

Hey are you going to do a classroom setup for 2018 – 2019 thank you so much 😊 keep up the good work you doing 👍🏾🙏

Tonika Satcherwhite · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

Where did you get the wood paper from?

iluvtoteach · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

I love your room and have gotten so many great ideas from you. Last year I used the I'm Done Now What? board, but I'm wondering, do you update the board throughout the day or just leave the same activities up for the day. For example, if it's your Writing Block time and kids finish, do you still have all the options up or do you rotate it so the options are only writing related? I know this is kind of a personal preference, but I want to know WWMMD What Would Miss May Do? HUGS

Hannah Charlton · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

Wow, your classroom is very beautiful. I can tell how much much love and work you put in. I love the font you used on your bulletin boards (math, reading, etc.) Did you cut that with a cricut machine or did you print them on coloured paper?

Takamella Williams · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

Miss May, how do you enlarge the Melonheadz on your wall? I have melonheadz but I don't know how to enlarge them.

c0us1nit · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

I love all of the different seating options and the lamps add such a nice homey touch!

Monica Mendieta · May 14, 2019 at 11:43 am

You are truly amazing! I am totally hooked on your videos. Quick question from a newbie teacher. Are you still able to use music for transitions in an open classroom?
