Ready to start a new school year!

So maybe this is your first time visiting, or maybe you come here often. For all of my friends who keep coming back, thank you...if you're a first time visitor, I suggest you follow the blog to get great ideas and possibly learn something! My regular readers, I'm sure you've noticed the new layout and awesome new graphics...if you like my changes be sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you think! Today's blog is going to be dedicated to showing off my hard work over the summer...I love how my room has turned out and I hope you'd agree!

Before you continue reading, take a moment to refresh your memory on how my room looked. Click here to read my earlier blog that has before pictures!!!

Without further ado, here are the "after" pictures of my classroom!

Here is the first thing that my students will see when they come into my room! I used some netting fabric that I purchased from Hobby Lobby to make striped panels. I love the orange, blue, and green you step into my room you will see that the theme and color scheme remain the same...frogs, frogs, and more frogs, and you can't forget the bright colors!

This is what you see when you step into Mr. Schulz's pad!
I even made my own curtains (with a little help of course)...but this dude had his fair share of time behind the sewing machine!!! I used orange sheets from Walmart and cut them down to my desired size...then I simply added some ribbon on the bottom!
And last but not least, I hope you're still with me... My newest addition to my frog themed classroom was to add some REAL frogs! 

Meet Dobie and Gunk!!!!! They are fire-bellied toads. I'm sure the kids will get a kick out of having some frogs to keep them entertained! You may be asking yourself...why Dobie, and what is a Gunk??? Good questions, lol. When Heather (my oldest daughter) was much younger, she had two imaginary friends Dobie and Gunk. She talked about them like they were real people, at times I almost wondered if she went to Head Start with them because she gave such great detail about them. Either way, when I got these frogs, I went to Heather and asked what I should name them....Bert and Ernie just weren't doing it for me (that's the best I could come up with). When she immediately rattled off Dobie and Gunk, my heart smiled and I KNEW that was the name for these frogs!!!
Dobie and Gunk are both hanging out by the drift wood.
Okay dear friends, I have lots of ideas to keep this blog rolling this year, make sure to follow the blog, repost the blog, and/or comment so that I know I'm not doing this all for nothing! See you all very soon! To all of my fellow teachers, I hope you have an amazing school doubt I will!
