Classroom Decorating Day 1
I woke up this morning and laid in bed debating whether to lay out at the pool or go work in my room. Then, I got a text from a fellow teacher friend asking if I was going to school today. So to school I went! I like working in my room when I have someone there with me. When I need a break I have someone to talk to and she helped keep me going. If she hadn't been there I probably would have left hours ago! Here is what was accompished today: First I Scrapped the Franklin off the door and windows. Then I moved the loft (with Kate's help). You can see in this picture how my room was laid out at Christmas. The loft was taking up so much valuable wall space! I also changed the tables my computers are on and placed them flat against the wall and put up some fabric to hide the cords. I HATE CORDS! I also redid a bulletin board. The owl picture is from last year. I did a double border on the board this year and I really like how it turned out. I arranged students' desks. I saw in someone's classroom in the blogging world had a round table in the middle of the desks. I wasn't sure where to put it and I really liked how it looked when she did it. I will have to see how it looks with students actually in the room. It might be too crowded. I am not sure what I am going to use it for either.... Suggestions? I moved my desk/ small group table to the corner where the loft used to be. I started setting up my new reading area. I still need to purchase the rug and set the books up and some other stuff. And now for my big dilema.... I moved the loft which I am soooo happy about but now I have this wall! Its huge! I need a new bulletin board. Do you all have any suggestions on how to make a bulletin board? I hung paper up on a wall last year, but it kept falling down!
