Today was the first day we were officially allowed back in the classroom! And, ay yi yi, what a mess!
Here's what I'm working with in my roomio...
Here is a view of my wall o' bulletin boards. Also in the corner you can see that I am trading my MASSIVE GIGANTIC teacher's desk for a little desk on wheels! Can you see it? It has the apple on it!
Here is my big whiteboard that is not magnetic. I feel like I need to say that every time I talk about this whiteboard because it would be an AMAZING thing if it was magnetic...... anyway! On the sides are bulletin boards even though they are green. I promise there is cork under there.
Here is my back wall, opposite of the whiteboard wall. Huge windows, great natural light! I have two cabinet/shelving unit things that I want to get rid of somehow.... although I really desperately need storage, they take up way too much space!
And here is the last wall. A chalkboard surrounded by bulletin boards, and on each side you can see my coatroom doors. Also you can see that I actually haven't traded in my MASSIVE GIGANTIC teacher's desk. It is way too heavy for people such as myself to be moving.
Here is something I am super pumped about.... I got a big rug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Kindergarten teacher retired and she had 3 big rugs in her room. Our new Kindergarten teacher is my buddy and said she didn't need all 3! Yay! This will be where we meet for whole group instruction and read alouds.
Here is my dilemma.... behind my rocking chair and easel you can see that there is part of the wall o' bulletin boards. What can I put up behind my easel that we won't need to look at all day long?? Decisions, decisions...
So there you have it! The before pictures! Hopefully the next pictures you see will be muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better-looking. :)
