It's started. Those days of saying, "You should really go to your classroom and check it out--you packed up in a hurry and it could be reallllllly bad." I ignored myself for a few weeks and finally caved the other day.
Guess who forgot to leave the custodians a room map? That's right. Me. Our custodians are great-and they like to have a map to put things back just right. No map? They leave it all in the middle of the room until they get information. I didn't feel like waiting so I dug in. Ready for day 1's "photo stream"? HERE GOES!
|What I walked into...no--I didn't finish taking down boards last year. I may just leave them. I love that we can leave our paper/fabric up. I haven't taken it down in 7 years.|
|I decided to move my library into my back "nook". This is where it was when I first moved in the room 7 years ago and then I switched it a few years ago. I'm indecisive...we'll see if it's still here at the end of August.|
|Are you kidding? This is literally ONE HOUR after arriving! Notice the box of Pringles sticks in the foreground. I think I ate four packs in three hours.|
|TWO hours in. I hate that I make more mess trying to get organized.|
|My 7 year old black paper is coming down--and being replaced with fabric. BIG job but so worth it.|
|And....not quite enough fabric. CURSES!|
|UGH...cutting fabric around obstructions--not fun.|
So...I left the room in a TOTAL shambles. I'll be brave and go back one day next week...with a crystal clear "to do" list--and more snacks. Thanks for taking a sneak peek!
