Labels make me happy: Art room sneak peek!

 I'm giving you a little sneak peek into my newly painted and cleaned and organized art room.  I've been camped out for the past few weeks working on everything from lesson plans to making sweet signs to hang up.  Every time I go in to work, I leave with 123123 more things to do.  It's beginning to come together and I am SO excited to start school.  It will be here before we know it!

In case you haven't' figured it out. I am a label nerd.  I want to know what is in the containers and I want my students to learn how to put things back where they belong.  I still haven't gotten my own children to do this, so we'll see!  

I'm doing an owl theme in the classroom. It may be a wee bit girly, but when you're surrounded by boys that's what happens! 

 Paint chip border. Best idea ever.  I'm headed to Wally World today to "borrow" some more.
There are six tables and each table will have on person who is the "floor captain" or "sink captain" Everyone will help clean up, but this person has a special job.  When the table is clean and quiet, they will get to line up first.  

I bought these lanterns at Target on the clearance rack. LOVE them.  This bulletin board will also serve as our "proud wall" to display the student's artwork! 

More to come.....lots more.
