Here are a few pics of my "detective" theme room and the final products of my Pinterest items...
Bins where students turn their work in - spray painted black and gave new labels to match the ones I made
Classroom storage bins inspired by Pinterest - these are back to back along side my desk - one set is for students with printer & notebook paper, math manipulatives, and clipboards; the other is for me with craft materials, extra supplies (folders, new crayons, etc.), and other odds and ends. They perfectly fit the length of my desk. :)
Drawers where I store pens, staples, etc. - inspired by Pinterest (spray painted)
Clipboards - courtesy of Pinterest project
New bathroom passes - final Pinterest project for the week
Calendar board - would you believe I did this one board the most - didn't like anything I did
Welcome back board - the red cards have all the different things we do in 5th grade and the yellow header says "Hot on the Trail of 5th Grade Success" - all are done in a cute font called Earwig Factory which looks like ransom letters
After the first week, I will change this to "Hot on the Trail of Reading Success" with my CAFE Posters and other reading strategy posters
"Investigating Science" board - this will change to be decorated according to the unit of science we are studying - first up is The Scientific Method"
New Guided Reading area set up - bookshelves hold all my teacher stuff, bins on top are for each reading group's materials, pink drawers will hold pencils, highlighters, post-its, etc. for groups, and filing cabinet has graphic organizers and forms, etc. for groups, as well as book units for literature clubs
Math Problem Solving Board above my window - cute set that went with theme "Math PSI: Problem Solving Investigators" - each poster talks about the different strategies for problem solving exactly like our math series does
