So, I have not even been on vacation for two weeks and I am already thinking constantly, non-stop,
ALL THE TIME
about my room for next year. It's the first time that I haven't had to spend my summer looking for a job too so it's been pretty crazy. Anyway, we aren't even allowed to get our keys back for a week or so, and I am already scheduled to go to Curriculum Development (paid!!) on the 18th so that will be my first day back at school and seeing what has been done to my classroom since I've been gone. Does anyone else have to completely strip down their room or is it just me? I feel like going crazy...this is what I left on the last day:
(I only have 3 pictures, sorry!)
So the only things not really pictured is the front of the room which has two giant white boards and two spaces on either side that are technically old chalkboards but I cover as a bulletin board. I also have a "nook" as you enter the room because I have the storage closet off my room. My wonderful boyfriend will be converting that to a mini computer lab for my kiddos in August. Anyway, does anyone have any wonderful ideas? I have some crafty projects as a work in progress which I will post when complete. My color scheme is still blues/greens/black. (p.s. I am also painting the bookshelves so they are 100% black. Issue last year was that I had ZERO bookshelves and had my dad make me some quick...but the paint wasn't drying very quickly so I had to leave the shelves plain wood!)
I also want to give a
HUGE GIGANTIC "THANK YOU"
to both my new and old followers. I jumped for joy when I found out that I had a few new followers this week. So super sweet. I would love love LOVE to get to 100 during the fall months! :-)
Until then, have a wonderful 4th of July tomorrow!
Much love from NY
