Putting Together a Classroom
I worked on my classroom for a few hours on Monday and then again on Thursday. I am making progress. The desks have been arranged. I will have 26 students this year.
I spent time organizing and weeding out my classroom library. If a book is twenty years old and it is still in good shape, you can assume that NO ONE IS READING IT! I need to make some additional labels for the tubs, but things are in pretty good shape.
Last year I made curtains for my library book shelves. I liked the clean look so much, that I decided I wanted to curtain off the shelves that hold my teachers manuals and other resources. I remade these denim curtains from curtains that used to hang in my son's bedroom.
My class rules poster is up and so is my welcome sign, but I have no idea what I'm going to put on my bulletin boards. There is lots more work to do, but I still have two more weeks until teachers have to report.
