Hollywood {Classroom Pictures} & a FREEBIE!

As most of you know, this is my first year in a new school in Niceville, Florida. Niceville kinda has a ring to it, doesn't it? As if you would expect everyone to be super duper nice? Well, they are. :) Literally EVERY person I have met has offered their assistance in some way and stopped by to chat... that's probably why I've been to work on my room almost every day this week--ha! Anyway, I wanted to share my progress thus far and offer a Hollywood freebie for you to enjoy, just for sticking around. :) Now, these aren't all the pictures of my room, like from every angle because I'm not completely done. I will be soon, though, because my county orientation is tomorrow, teacher training starts Monday and open house is Thursday. Ahhh!!

Okay. so I now see the 'Director Lopez' is completely not centered. I'll be fixing that soon! I also need to add stars, but even with the crookedness, it's way better than the ugly mess it used to be.

Here's another peek into my desk area. This will be where my teacher computer goes once it arrives. Remember I said school starts the 19th? Pray, people, pray. See the colorful Hollywood Bucks there? I thought this pink shelf/holder/thingy was the perfect place to hold the bucks, but I can't yet think of anything to put in the rest of it. Oh, well! You can grab the bucks, behavior chart and classroom reward tickets {here} from my TpT store, or read up on the system I use, {here}.

This will soon be my outside display of Hollywood Quality Work.. again, a work in progress! :)

This is an old corkboard that had way too many holes and was way too ugly. I had some left over bulletin board paper, so decided to cover it like a Christmas present and go from there. It's hanging behind my desk area.

The supplies... can you believe our area doesn't have a teacher store? I had to drive all the way to Pensacola to get these materials! If anyone is interested in making way more money than you do now, quit your job, move to the Niceville, Florida area and open a teacher store. I'll be your numero uno customer!
My room began with these colors, which aren't awful..

Very bright, to be exact..
But! They did not go with my Hollywood theme, hence the black, red and stars.

I'm thinking of displaying our class rules up on the top there, once my students and I create them!

So there you have it, some of my class thus far. Still tons more to do, but I wanted to leave you with a freebie for those of you who also use a Hollywood themed system!
I assign each one of my students a number to make things such as roll calling and labeling easier on myself, and so I don't have to recreate materials year after year. I sometimes forget who has which number, so I whipped up a cute chart I'm going to display in my room. One will be hanging up in a centralized location, and the other in my teacher notebook.

  1. It's looking good! I think I'd love to live and work in Niceville!

  2. It looks very cute. I did a Hollywood theme a couple of years ago and the kids really enjoyed it.
