My school finally opened! Well, technically it's not open, but I found a way in. I was so excited to finally start organizing and and setting things up. I had already arranged my furniture, so I spent all day today doing little things. I'm trying to change my look this year and tried and tried to think of something new and different. I've never really had a theme, but I do like for all of my things to be coordinated. Finally, I decided to use my new rug for inspiration-squares!
I started with my bookshelf for my content area books. Since we team teach at my school, I'll only be teaching math, social studies, and science, but I still feel that all teachers should have a large variety of books for their students. This was my bookshelf from last year.
I also got my bulletin board ready, which is very, very boring. We are required to post standards, student work, rubrics, and commentary on our bulletin board, so we don't get to do anything really fun. I did try to make it coordinate with everything.
I use this to organize my multiplication timed tests.
I don't really hang anything on the wall before school, because we add things as we go.
