a Rafflecopter giveaway

Well I am back to school from Spring Break I miss my babies at home but I feel like I have hit crunch time in class.  I don't know about you guys but I feel like time is flying.  Before you know it my students will be 2nd graders and I feel like I still have so much to cover.  AHHHHH!
Ok.Ok I am back.   Had a little nervous breakdown there.  Its not like we haven't done anything but I always feel like there is more to cover.
All this thinking of end of the year reminds me of summer and my old classroom.  I use to have a Beach themed room and it always made me feel relaxed.  I loved the colors and the vibe it gave off.  Don't get me wrong I love my Hollywood themed classroom I have now and don't plan to change it but I do miss my Beach Theme some days.  Here are a few pics of my old room and some Freebies.
This was my student work board.  they kept all of their book boxes for their Daily 5 underneath.
This was my job chart "A Sea of Helpers". I added all the boats and have all the students names on stars. All those baskets on the shelf were for homework, money and notes, spelling lists and the one closes to the door is for classwork. I don't use the hooks for their backpacks instead I have the students put them on their chair and use this to hang their coats during winter and hang my classroom mascot bag (Flippy the Dolphin) and the lost tooth bag that they get to take home. (Sorry about the messy picture but this was towards the beginning of the year and we were working on putting things neatly in baskets)

This was my calendar area and where my group rug is.

This was my word wall and my math wall. We didn't have any words up when this was taken since it was the beginning of the year but now I put all of the students names and the first 5 words on our spelling list. The table is our writing center.
This was my classroom library. I had my wonderful husband hang my tiki roof from my ceiling. I had him move it twice because it was way too high and then after looking at this picture I had him move it again because it was too low. When this picture was taken it was still missing the cute mat and the chairs.
The last picture I have is my Birthday wall. I got this from Miss Kindergarten. It is a BIRTHDAY BEACH. The months are on sandcastles and you write the students names on red pennants. It was just too cute so I had to do it in my classroom.

This is the view of my room from the door. All the rooms in our school are the same size so I have a pretty good size room with lots of windows so I am truly blessed.

After a long walk through memory lane here are some freebies just click on the pic to head on over to my TPT store, while you are there you can follow my store:
