My NEW Chair


So if you’re wondering what a teacher like me would love for Christmas, if you guessed a new chair – you were right!! I had rocking chair envy – it being my first year I didn’t have a teacher chair – other than a little larger than Kindergarten chair to sit on in the front of the room.  It was fine, I made do but I saw someone that had a rocking chair and I was in LOVE people.  I was like…how cool would that be?!

And look what my mom came up with – a completely redone garage sale chair!  She painted it in my favorite colors and even made a fuzzy reversible seat cover!! I was literally in shock when I opened it!  It is cute and adorable and perfect and comfortable in my room!!  It was literally the perfect gift- I keep it as just my chair for now maybe on a student’s birthday they can sit in it?  It’s just so special!

Here’s another shot of this beauty!!!!
Did I mention that my mom also made these pillows for our reading center, we never have more than 5 there at a time so she used fleece and recovered pillows for us to use!! They each have a spot in the front of my room and can only be used for bottoms or elbows and we have actually followed all those rules ๐Ÿ™‚ 
They are soft and make reading comfortable and fun for us!

Ignore how ugly my pictures look – there is no pretty way to pile up the pillow ๐Ÿ™‚
