Superhero Speech Room Tour 2014-2015

3.2.15 || It's Nevada Reading Week and the theme is Got Books?  Be a superhero...Read!  It just so happened that the speech room is already superhero themed since the beginning of the school year.  The inspiration came from School Girl Style when I saw her post her superhero classroom early last year.  I finally purchased Speech Room Style's superhero themed digital file from her TpT store.

Room 29
hanging paper lanterns from Party City




Superhero Vintage Tin Wall Art from Amazon
I originally saw them at a souvenir store
in Wall Drug, South Dakota
during one of our road trips last year
dice bean bag from Hobby Lobby
clearance over 3 years ago

Telephone Booth
it's funny most of my kids don't really get it
since they don't know what a phone booth is...
my 7 year old asked why would Superman
change in a phone booth when it's see through
(after realizing what the phone booth looks like
 via the recent Paddington movie)
where all the paperwork happens

IKEA FLYT Magazine file
and Superhero pencils, tattoos, erasers, etc.
for every 5 stickers they earn on their superhero charts


wardrobe covered in gift wrapping paper from Home Goods
plastic milk crates from Walmart
Ikea Kvissle Wall magazine rack
Container Store Wall Pockets
It's a small office, creating vertical storage a must!
I recycled a few items from the last speech room decor, 
but I also got rid of many items due to lack of space and 
pink just really didn't go with this one, lol.

It's been a cool space to work in
and the kids enjoy coming here.
I'm glad I get to do what I do.

Captain Noah's 1st Pirate Party Birthday

Happy 1st Birthday, lil man!
~We love you very much~
12.18.14 | In just a blink of an eye, the baby turned one last Thursday, on December 18th.  His party was held at Child's Play, an indoor playground. Child's Play provided two staff who helped with set up, clean up and supervised throughout the party.  Of course, I always wish I have 4 hours to set up so I don't feel rushed but that never happened with these play places.  They give you 15 minutes only!!!!  But a big shout out goes to our school librarian who had two amazing tubs of pirate props and goodness and to all our family (grandparents and sis) and friends who helped out as our baby Noah turned O N E!

tada!
blue bins and matching bags were bought from Target's
dollar spot on clearance many years ago that I have forgotten
Noah happened to find the bag and had been playing with them
and that's how the pirate theme came to be...arrrrr!
