I got the keys to my classroom today! It is always exciting to get started on a new school year. :)
This is what I started with today:
I was up at school for about 2 hours just going through things and beginning to move furniture around.
I am really changing up the placement of furniture this year. I want to do more small group work, so I am putting my table at the front of the room.
I have my crate seats under the Promethean board because the kids like to pull them out and sit up close when I am doing a lesson. I have my teacher computer on the small table on the left. I am hoping the cords reach so I can keep it there. We shall see. The file cabinets will be leaving soon.
I have moved my desk closer to the back of the room. I felt like my desk was taking up space at the front where kids needed to be, so I have revamped my placement this year. I am using my large bookshelf that used to house my library for my teaching resources and basic junk. I do still have to decorate my desk...
This side of the room didn't receive much attention from me today. I want to go through my library books and decide which ones to sit out for the beginning of the year. I don't want them all out the entire year because it is too much. Book overload for the kids. I don't know how I am going to set them up because I kinda want the book boxes for the kids to use...
I will be going back on Thursday to work some more. I will post new pictures over the weekend!
