This is what my classroom looked like when I arrived earlier this week...What a mess! FYI- this is not how I packed my room up...this is what happens when the cleaning crew comes through and really, actually cleans! So thankful my room got a great cleaning...not so thankful for the mess...=)
Where to start???
After moving furniture around, I was able to make an area
to get busy painting! One of my past students came to help me, and we got four bookcases painted. I got some things moved back into place as the paint was drying...
and here is where we left off on day one... My small group table and teacher bookshelf back in place. The long blue bookshelf off to the side is the student library area. Soon those shelves will be full again!
This is the front of my room, with the love of my life...SMARTboard....(don't mind the book baskets stacked on the floor...there is some organizing to be done there!)
This is a shot of the classroom from the front door. as you can see, it is a work in progress!
Today we moved onto a DIY project that I saw on What the Teacher Wants....
Love them! Sorry about the color...phone camera! I will post better pictures tomorrow. This was such a quick and easy project! The most exciting part is the kids can sit on them and I can use them for storage at the same time...Brilliant idea whoever thought of it!
