So today's news is brought to you by Saturday. Yesterday Jeff and I both spent the day cleaning out our classrooms. I think it's safe to say each year we forget how big this job is, ugh!
After clearing out of my room I went to visit my new rooms and begin the task of planning how to organize for each of them. I hesitate to plan too much because our student numbers are still shifting which means I could be switching assignments come fall.
Here's one room I will be sharing with a teaching partner. Pretty bare. Notice the lack of shelving. There's some just outside of this picture, but not enough in my opinion.
Here's my other room. I will be part SERT (Special Education Resource Teacher). I plan to work in classrooms and pull small groups into my office here. This is how it was left. Do I change it around? Do I leave things as is? What is the best set up for my kiddos?
...the biggest hurdle is the windows. I find myself distracted by anyone walking by, so how do I keep the students on task when kids walk by? The previous teacher had paper up to block the windows (green and blue sheets in pic) , but I'm not sure if I can find something that looks a little nicer, or just leave things as is.
Thoughts? Ideas? I would love to hear what you might do with this little space to accommodate the windows and distractions.
