Now, on to my Monday Made It! I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to share my Monday Made It! (It's actually more like Monday My Mom and Dad Made It)
Last, but not least: Classroom Pictures!! I was finally allowed to get in the school to see my classroom for the first time today! I had no idea what to expect when I got there, but I was a little surprised to find a completely empty room! I was told my furniture wouldn't be delivered until Wednesday! OMG! Since this is a brand new class being added this year, all of my furniture will be brand spankin' new! Fantastic right?! The only problem is...it's not here yet!! I really don't have an idea of what is coming besides tables of some sort, chairs, and hopefully shelves and things for centers. So after meeting all of the wonderful teachers I will be working with on my hall and doing a little unpacking, I spent the rest of the day with my mom staring at the walls trying to envision what I'm going to have and where it is all going to go! My classroom is much smaller than a normal CD classroom. It's going to be a tight squeeze when the furniture is delivered and even harder to find places on the floor for 20 mats for rest time! Even though my room is on the small size, I LOVE the location! I have a door that goes straight out to the playground and my room is easily accessible from the parking lot and playground which will be amazing when it's time to unload the massive amount of stuff I have taking up space in our playroom. And I'm right next to a very nice and very helpful teacher that I already know I can go to for anything! Ready to see some pictures??
This is my classroom from the doorway! There are cubbies, a cabinet, and bathroom on the left. The SMART board and some bulletin boards are on the right.
This is the view from the SMART board/front of the room. The shelves on the left I get to keep, but the things inside the shelves belong to the last teacher who had this room. BUT the boxes on top are brand new manipulatives that are ALL MINE! :)
Another view from the SMART board/front of the room.
The view from the wall where the door is. That board on the right is a bulletin board. See my super convenient door that goes right out to the playground?! I'm going to paint the door with chalkboard paint! :) I can't wait! I also LOVE my HUGE window!
This is the front of the room. The cubbies are behind me. The SMART board is right smack dab in the middle of a large dry erase board. The dry erase board has seen MUCH better days and is in need of some serious TLC!
This is the view of the hall doorway from the playground door. Under that blue paper is a chalkboard and another bulletin board. And yes, that wall is pink! I would normally be thrilled, but I think it's going to clash with all of the red and blue I'm using for my nautical theme. Luckily I'm free to paint the walls whatever color I want! I'm thinking a light yellow? Thoughts?
And here is the outside of my door! Room 109! :)
So, it's obvious I have A LOT of work ahead of me, but this room has SO much potential! I have trainings the rest of the week so I probably won't be able to get back to school to check out my new furniture. But I'll be back bright and early Monday morning to get started! Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions!! :)
