I have a spotlessly clean classroom and - even better - I know where everything is!
And - and this is the best of all - I can SEE my desk!! Huge big smiley face!! :)
So since everything looks so awesome I am going to show you some pictures :) Bear in mind that my desk was inherited from someone else and is ancient. It also weighs a ton but I kind of like it anyway. I never sit at it so it's usually just a piling place but... no more!
This is the new and improved desk!!
The new and improved reading corner/carpet area/meeting time place:
Those pretty learning behavior posters on the white board are from Meg at Fourth Grade Studio - I love them. You can find them here - she has different styles available so just browse her store.
And just so you can totally appreciate how much STUFF I got rid of:
|Piles of ancient files from equally|
ancient metal file cabinet
|Cabinet gone and all files|
reduced to these 2 neat little
boxes that fit under my desk :)
And finally: the awesomely clean classroom ready for children on Tuesday :) I still have one window to finish but I am pretty pleased with myself :)
Mind you, I shouldn't have started to write this blog post while my husband was home for lunch because ... he is now wondering why our house doesn't look like the classroom :) Sadly (hee hee) I have run out of cleaning time. Well, maybe I'll tidy up a little bit tomorrow...
... or... maybe not :)
