Hello people! Well… it’s time. Tomorrow is the first day of school. 15 new little ‘staches arrive. And when they arrive I will try not to be curled up in the corner in a state of hysteria. The first day always terrifies me. At least when they arrive they will have a very fun and colorful room to walk into!
Well, I have to give a HUGE shoutout to my color lovin pals at Astrobrights. Without their amazing paper, the room wouldn’t be nearly as RAINBOW FABULOUS as it is. You see, Astrobrights contacted me this summer and asked if I wanted to participate in their #colorizeyourclassroom promotion. They’d send me some goodies and I’d use the goodies and blog about it and share it. So, you wanna send me some paper for my classroom?! SIGN ME UP. And then they said they would let me do a giveaway so that one of my friends (um, that’s you all!) could win the same thing they sent me. Seriously…when you see the give away, you’ll freak. You might even throw some glitter!
Did you know that using your color in your classroom isn’t just fun, but research shows it helps kids learn. Fun and helps kids learn?! Oh yeah, I’m in. And really, who wants to stare at BLAH cinder block walls all day when you can have COLOR!
Color can increase retention by 18% 18% just by using some color. I’ve heard that green on yellow is excellent for retention.

People, we need to use some color!
So, here’s how I have colorized my classroom so far.
