Okay, back to why I'm posting today! Leigh is starting her very first linky party and I can't wait to join! I love this idea! She calls it the "easiest PD you'll do all summer... and it's from your couch!" LOVE IT! Today I am linking up my classroom décor: the good, the bad, and the ugly. And the hopeful!

Classroom décor future...
Well besides loving the look of a rainbow explosion in my room, it was also the "Pinterest" room, thanks to last summer's Monday Made It with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics. I don't have A LOT of money to spend on redecorating and buying more stuff but I know what I WOULD like to take it more into the Polka Dots route. I know that's probably outdated but I just love dots, what can I say?
Definitely doing this to my table during preplan! I already have the polka dot bulletin board trimmers from Lakeshore in a multitude of colors (hello rainbow explosion) but I think I'm leaning towards more blues and greens and random pops of color for next year.
I'm not entirely sure how I'm arranging/decorating the room yet for two reasons:
1. I don't know what I'm teaching next year. I might be just ELA/SS again or be self-contained, I'll keep you updated!
2. This monstrosity that is my front wall. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, it's burnt orange-ish and you're a huge Longhorn fan. What could be wrong with that? Nothing! I love me some Longhorns but not painted on my classroom wall adjacent to a dusky rose wall of cabinets. I feel like all my décor is competing with those two walls!? I know it's not awful, I'm making a bigger stink than necessary and on their own they are nice colors, just not what I would use to compliment all my stuff. Any advice on how to make it all work?
So there you have it, my classroom décor idea for next year! Don't forget to link up with Leigh over at The Applicious Teacher and let us know what you plan to do. I LOVE to see other people's ideas! Also, don't forget tomorrow is Must Have Monday! What can you not live without??? Link up tomorrow and let us know :o)
