Hi Kim loved the video. I'm a retired teacher from Philadelphia. Retired after 35 years of service in January. Teaching my one and only job I absolutely loved my job had to retire early because of illness started teaching right out of college. Wishing you a wonderful and safe school year. Can't wait to see more of your videos 📚🖍✏🖋

I had to break up my library one year like that so I did non-fiction on one side of the room and fiction in the other. It worked out pretty well!

Your classroom is looking so good already!! I love how positive you stay even after having to switch rooms/schools (I feel your pain, that was our room the last 2 years). Also I’m definitely getting that jumpsuit! Thank you for sharing your journey! 🥰🥰

Welcome to 5th grade, Kim! I look forward to you sharing your ideas with us throughout this school year. I am a 5th grade teacher, too. Cute and comfortable jumpsuit! I love it!! You are blessed to have all of the things that you have. I know that you will be able to organize it into a classroom that will feel like home to the students and for yourself. So glad to see your happy spirit!! The wall looks fantastic!!! I am so excited for you to get your room together. I look forward to seeing your classroom tour!

Classroom Set up I think really helps us mentally prepare for the year, it's almost ceremonial--- (and exhausting! Let's face it! lol) but it's always fun to transform a bland space into one that gets kids intrigued! Thank you for sharing!

I’ve been so excited for this video 💕 it really looks like you’ve got this classroom setup thing down! Haha! Do you have any tips for setting up a new room from scratch? Where to start, what doesn’t really matter, and how to not be overwhelmed? xx

I just made my first classroom setup vlog ever and it is surprisingly fun! Thanks for sharing! I'm loving the clean/rustic feel of everything.

Laura Heitman:
Maybe you could make a library “niche” by turning the shelves into an “L” shape. You could use the back of the shelves as display for your small group area. Just something I do in my classroom. Good luck in your new school!

Kaylee Abbott:
Love how your room is turning out! 💛

The wood wall looks awesome! You did a really good job-especially by yourself! How lucky were you though that they had a roll at Hobby Lobby!! I need to also try that peach ring drink because peach rings are one of my favorite candies for sure! I can't wait to see your room when its done and the rest of your classroom set up videos! You are so dedicated for staying SO LONG! OMG! Your classroom library will turn out great!! Don't worry about it too much! :)

I’m also a 5th grade teacher coming from 4th grade. Have to say that I end up loving 5th grade a lot more than 4th grade. Hope you will have a great experience in 5th grade as well!

Rebecca May:
Hey, Kim! I'm starting year 24 of teaching elementary and during my time, I have moved classrooms/buildings 9 times! Phew! I understand and can sympathize! Hang in there! Your room is looking great! Remember to practice self-care so you are ready for your kiddos and have a fresh mind when school starts. Also, I have bookshelves in different places around my room. This way the kids aren't all in one place, even with my procedure of 1-3 kids at the "library", I still like having them spaced around the room. I did like how you put the picture book shelves around the small group white boards. Looking forward to the next video!

Great video. Love the way you are setting up your new class.
Enjoy your new space.
WOW! Kim you rocked. Your room is looking super cute. I have anxiety for you knowing that wall is collapsible. I was like I really hope the other teacher doesn't try to open it , lmao. My first year of teaching we had a wall like that and the other teacher liked to open it. But love the way it's turning out.

Each classroom you move to is better than the last one. The wall turned out great!!! Blessings sweet friend!
Karen Palmer
Karen Palmer:
Hi Kim! Your room is looking really good girl! Question: How do you get such free access to your classroom/school where the custodian is gone and you are still there by yourself so late at 11 pm? Especially during this time of Covid-19 I'm surprised they would. My building service people have a fit if I'm still in my room after 7 pm.even though our handbook says we can be there till 9 pm. Anyway I can't wait to see more!

Heather Paschall
Heather Paschall:
Great set up video! Are you going back virtually or brick and mortar? I jealous of able to have a fridge and microwave in your room too! So many limits with public school, also you have so much storage! Cute outfit! As far as a class library 📚, how are you going to do that safely? Need any recommendations you have! Have a safe and happy covid year!
Aaron Lanier
Aaron Lanier:
Oh, since your new front door is like really far away, you should put a doorbell outside of your room and sanitize it like everyday afterschool at some point into the year or so, so you and everyone know that someone’s at the door!
J W:
Looking great so far!!

Nothing sums you up more as a person than the fact you said "oh well, what are you going to do?" when you heard a creepy noise at 10pm in an empty building 😂😂love you, even though you scare me
Shannon Lee
Shannon Lee:
Just a thought, if you are able to move your teacher space to the other side of the whiteboard I would do that. Then you could put your library in the corner where your teacher space is now? Then all of the bookcases can be together? Not sure if your space has to be there because of tech set up, but if you can move, I might consider moving it?
Karen Jones
Karen Jones:
WOW!!! What a huge classroom...I could only wish!!!
Brandy Hutzler

Great job! I put some shiplap paper on my desk and that was hard enough to do alone. Haha.
Allie Warren
Allie Warren:
I would put the library up by the front board where your teacher area is! I think it would fit perfect & look super cute. Then you could but your small group area/ teacher area in the back corner where your library currently is!! Your room is looking SO cute already!

Samantha Hammett
Samantha Hammett:
Omg I’ve never seen the sparkling ice + caffeine. I love the normal sparkling ice. Those would be awesome!
Kim you dont ever have to use the door to the other classroom or they dont use the two rooms to open up do they? i would hate for you to put in all that work for them to want to open up the divider wall.

I’ve had to move 14 classrooms and 7 schools in 17 years. I’ve got to keep the same room 3 times. This year was one of them. It’s a lot of work but you don’t become a teacher hoarder.

That Girl With The Coffee:
Is the block of 3 shelves beside the drawers one big block, or can it be broken up? Because you could move the tallest and one smaller to the other side of the whiteboard, and then put the remaining one and the small picture book display at the top of the room beside the window? (Framing where you currently have the picnic table)
Christine Pleiman
Christine Pleiman:
Move your desk over by the windows and put your shelves/library area in the corner where your desk is currently.

When you say “new building” does that mean that the name of your school stayed the same but 5th grade is another building on the same campus?
