Where has summer gone? Can you believe it is August? Well, it is here and we might as well roll with it. Today I am going to link up up Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for her monthly linky party. First, I am going to share some of my classroom pics.
I have spent this week getting my room ready. Is it completely finished? No, but it will do until I return to work the Week of the 12th with 4 PD days and 1 work day before the children arrive.
I have a small rectangular shaped room. I have no windows, just one door to the outside and one door to the hallway.
This is what you would see if you entered my room through the hallway. I have grouped 20 student desk in the middle of the room. My small group table and teacher desk is to the right of the door. I have a group meeting area in front of our magnetic white board. (Sorry for the poor photo)
This is the view when coming in through the outside door. I have a second meeting area to the right of the room.
This is the view from the back right corner.
This is the view from my teacher area.
As you can see I still have boxes stacked on top of the student closet area. I am like many other teachers with lack of storage. I need some ideas on how to make my sink area more functional for storage and student use. Any ideas???
Now for my August Currently...
I am loving the way my room is coming together. I have thrown away so much stuff this week. I have a few more areas to organize around my sink and above the children's closet. I hope to get that taken care of before August 19.
Thinking about supper. I have no idea what I am going to feed my hungry family tonight. It may be a sandwich night.
Wanting to get my literacy centers finished up and organized. It is a very challenging task. I am determined to finish.
What I need and my Back To School must haves are self explanatory. I think several of us have similar B2S items.
I am off to read others are currently doing....
