On Monday the 6th all teachers return for district and building meeting and hopefully time to work in our classrooms.
I've never been one to worry about if my room looks pretty or not. But I do try to make some colorful posters and things. But today I stopped in during enrollment to check out my room and I will need a lot of color. My new room is pre-it-y, plain. See my pictures?
This first one is my classroom door that opens to the primary carpeted cafeteria area and main halls.
This second door is to the west parking lot. So I have a door to the outside, a small 8x20 cement patio and a little grassy area. You can see I have great west windows too. Coming from no windows at all this is great!
These are two 4 x 8 ft rolling storage units. HUGE! But they have doors on either end, and are open shelves all of the way through. So I guess since I don't have a storeroom I get these.
But I hate where they are sticking out near the front of the room. Plus I want to change it up so it isn't exactly like last year. New art teacher, new floor plan.
So my daughter and I turned them and put one at each end of the room.
For now I have my desk here. But I'd rather have it in the center of the room kind of where this table is. Towards the back, by my cabinets so I can see my screen and use the computer/projector.
This is my enormous wall for displays. I can't wait to fill them with all kinds of things and artwork!
My small white board and an even smaller chalk board on the right.
That makes up the south wall- display board and white board.
My north wall is all-l-l-l cabinets and storage!
See what I mean about it needs color? I have my work cut out for me, huh?
I decided today that I didn't think I would even try to decorate everything for the first day of school. It will be a "work in progress" pretty much the whole year I figure. I think living/working in it for a while will help me decide what all I want to do too.
So August 9th is our first day with kids.
I forgot lesson plans.
I think that will be the easy part-- lol!
