Getting to know us!

Hey everyone! Emily here (and Lauren at the end of this post!). Thanks for stopping by our new blog!  We are so excited to be working on this together and to get the opportunity to share new ideas with each of you as well as learn some ourselves.  Before my first official post about classroom happenings, I thought I would introduce you to where it all takes place… everyone loves a little classroom tour! When I started teaching 3 years ago, I could not come up with a classroom theme that I loved so instead I decided to do some mixing and matching with pops of bright colors.  This so called theme stuck and has really worked for me and my 1st graders ever since.  I think every teacher wants their students to feel warm and welcome when they enter the door each day.  I love looking to fellow teachers to see how they create that classroom environment and how I can use that inspiration to create my own ideas.  And of course you gotta love TPT where many things on the walls in my classroom come from. Anyways, enough rambling… check out where my first graders call their home at school!

I (Lauren) wanted to give a sneak peek inside my classroom, too! I must say first, I absolutely adore Emily's room and think it is so bright and friendly! I do not have a "theme" either (I am thinking I might attempt polka dots and stripes next year -- hopeful thinking!), but think my room expresses who I am and is a place where a lot of learning, love and happiness takes place each day. I am very blessed to be doing the best job in the world. When I was in second grade, I came home and told my parents I would be a second grade teacher one day. I LOVE that my dream has come true! :)

Last, but not least -- here's me (:
