Classroom Reveal!

Teachers always seem to do these cute blog posts about their classroom after they have it all decorated, so here I am. Honestly, I just want to remember what my first ever classroom looked like 20 years down the road. If you're not up for it- don't look any farther!

Table Numbers under the lanterns

First shot of the classroom

My Hi-Five Board was something that came to me in my sleep. This is where my kids put the poster of our classroom rules we came up with together. Then, to have them have some accountability for the rules they each stamped their handprint and they are now hung on this board. I LOVE IT!!

Calendar and this is where I recently put our class job rotations. 

My aunts out did themselves on my rug. I am so lucky to have it! It really adds a lot to the classroom. 

Student Cubbies

Sink Area

Book Nook. I made the pillows myself with help from my aunt. I think total all four pillows cost around $25. My kids love them. It's been really fun to see them use this area. 

Another viewpoint. 

I wanted a unique way to label things so I decided to use Washi tape. You can't see the detail in this photo but it makes me happy in real life. 

Half of my classroom library. Organized by authors last name. 

Reading word wall.

This bulletin board turned out to be one of my favorites. I have each of the common core "I can" statements under each subject area. 

This is what it looked like before school started. Now where the table is has my rug and rocking chair. 

Science and Social Studies word wall

A closer look at the labels for my class library. I used my aunts Cricut to cut out the majority of the things in my classroom. 

Content Board. 

My behavior clip chart. It has worked wonders so far. I only go down because for the positive I use a different system. 

Well, folks! There she is! I am overall very happy and in love with my classroom space.

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

A Letter to Asher Rae.

Baby Asher,
Your momma is currently in labor and in a few hours you'll make your grand debut into this world. From the moment I knew you were coming I was in shock and how much my heart could grow. I work with sweet children all day and I love them so much. The love I already have for you is so different. You'll be the first grandchild of my parents, and you'll be my first ever niece. You're coming into a world that is incredibly hard and difficult. With your amazing parents in your life you'll be taught how to be strong and to be valiant in all circumstances. Your dad, my brother, is an excellent human being. He is dedicated, he is a dreamer, he is a hard worker, and he will be the most amazing father. Your mom is so beautiful. She is loving, she is patient, and she loves your dad so much. Your grandma, my mom, is SO excited for you. She will love you and spoil you, but she will also help you when things get hard. Your Grandma Forsyth is a tough woman. The toughes…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …
