I've emptied out most of the stuff from the cubbies and coat rack area that was stuffed there last June, and found a home for most of that stuff.
I've rearranged my class Library so that all the books are organized in coordinating baskets! This was no easy task, but I'm feeling mighty proud of this! There are still a few labels in the laminating process, but it will be ready for Open House.
I even have my calendar bulletin board up, and the large group area set aside. Once a long time ago, I remember young teachers (I was one at the time) making fun of older teachers because they put the same furniture in the same place every year. I vowed then that I wouldn't be one of "those teachers."
|This year's change: Large group area to the right|
|Today's tasks: find the classroom!|
But at least my classroom is starting to look like my classroom. The stuff I have left is the fun stuff, the most tedious stuff is complete, whoooo hoooo!
