The day has finally come when I have finished my classroom set up. It certainly isn’t 100% ready but is it ever?
My laminator took forever to arrive (the joys of living in Canada) and so many of my things are not laminated. Fingers crossed that they will last longer than just this year! Today I laminated
everything I could see a few things and ran out of pouches. (I think I may need to go to Laminators Anonymous). I’m sure you can all relate.
So this is my new school. The construction workers are still going but it is looking nothing short of amazing in this school. This is the first time in my 20+ years that I have opened a new school.
My classroom is at the end of the hall and opens up to this common area where the library is and there is now picnic tables and a beautiful playground.
For some reason, the classrooms have 15 cubbies. I was hoping class sizes were going down, but no luck. 🙂 So, I decided that they would share the bins 2 to a bin. (Yes, I may rethink that.) I figure that it’s a good way to promote community and it’s only for gym shoes anyways. I am using tables this year and shared supplies so it is a good combination. The safari number labels are from my Zebra Classroom Decor
I love my desk space. This is the space where I can organize and plan for the day. I love how my rainbow table is in my writing center getting used daily but it also doubles as my guided reading table.
