Working in the Classroom

So, Jaslyn and I headed to my classroom this morning and were pretty productive. I think I can leave it until our pre-planning week now.

I mentioned in my previous post about our huge teacher desks, so had to get a picture to show. It was piled high, so one thing to get done was putting away all the stuff. This is what it looks like:

When I taught primary I preferred not to have a desk in the classroom, but I have gotten used to this. The part at the front is where I meet with my small groups, though I may change that this year. I can fit 5 kids there comfortably.

I got my 3 bulletin boards done. To make the background I bought 2 black plastic tablecloths at Dollar Tree -- it was much cheaper than black sheets. It's a new idea, so I'll have to see how it holds up!

The third board has tiger print border; apparently I forgot to take a picture.

The tables are put together and moved into place. You can see I still have a lot of decorating to do!

I think I figured out where to store my boxes of math work station materials! This table by my desk is where I put baskets for students to turn in their work.

I had stuff piled on three of my table groups, but now it's all . . .  piled on the counter tops! Still a lot of work to be done.

With the furniture in place now I'll be able to concentrate on the decor -- and finding places for everything. All in all, a pretty productive day. 


  1. Wow! I love that desk.. you are right it is huge but I love it! Of course it would take up my entire classroom. And all your storage space is making me jealous!

  2. That is one crazy desk! I could see where it would come in handy as a meeting area. I have a counter like that too. It is such an easy place to set things as you are setting up!
