So..remember, my room looked something like this to start with...
Here is the classroom library. Blue and yellow bean bag chairs are on the left. I don't have all my books out- the shelves are too small. I have them in storage and intend to rotate books in and out to keep things "fresh."
This is my desk set up. It is very similar to last school year (many things are actually). The student computers are to the right. You can see my smartie pants on my desk waiting for a 3m hook!
We are trying tables this year. We have 6 tables and I think we will sit 4, 5 at the most per table. I bought these drawers at Wal-Mart today. We will put one set at the front of each table. I *think* we will keep white boards in one drawer and folders/ notebooks in the others. Of course I HAD to take a picture of the table that had not been wiped down yet! I need to buy three more of these tomorrow... I really want to buy different color buckets from Really Good Stuff like this picture below to keep materials in.
Here is a view from the back of the room look toward the front door on the right.
This is the view from the back of the room looking to the left. I am totally putting up bulletin boards tomorrow- even it is just fabric and border! That cork is killing me!
I will be going back in tomorrow and will have more pictures to share of my progress!
I was nominated for the Really Good Stuff (I know I referenced them above but it was truly coincidence, I promise!) blog award. I am so honored! The voting has opened now. There are tons of fantastic blogs nominated. Please make sure to check it out by clicking here.
