    Hi,
    I thought I'd share some pics I took of my classroom at the beginning of the year last year. I have many new ideas for what I want to do different this year, but here's what it used to look like. ;) Feel free to share your pictures too. I'd love to see other classrooms. Take Care.

    Hi Amanda, for some reason the pictures aren't coming up on my computer. Maybe it's just me?

    I love your classroom!! It is very warm and cozy but I can tell that it is also functional. I wish that I had carpet in my classroom. I like how you have your desks arranged. You made good use of your space. What are you thinking of changing this year? Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Thanks! Well, like I said before I want to make "subject" walls for reading and math. I'll probably add a "center" area too. There's another side to my classroom that you can't see from these pictures that would make a good center area. So I'll probably do that too. Who knows, I have many ideas, but not as much time! LOL, isn't that always the way!

    Thank you very much- It was free for me to use for six months while I was enrolled in a master's course. Thanks and feel free to give me suggestions in my classroom.

    Sarah, I enjoyed looking at your web site. I like the way you have your classroom set up. Nice bulletin boards. I love the book shelf in your reading center. What are you going to change this year?

    Amanda and Sarah, you both have beautiful classrooms! Mine is still being set up, but here are a few from last year (UGH! ANCIENT!).

    My classroom was 1/2 the size of this year's. A lot of things were crammed. The room is already so much more open and beautiful this year.

    Even the bookshelf is more organized for this year! :)

    This is my classroom for this year- I know I am a little early- I have pictures from last year that I could send you. I got this layout from a workshop with Dr. Maggie.

    Wow - very cool! I am going to have to install a photo gallery for the forums - Then you can share your photos more easily and browse other galleries!

    Very colorful classrooms! They look great. Looking at other classrooms is one of my favorite things to do. It's neat to see how others organize and have things set up. I don't have any photos right now, but thanks for sharing yours.

    Both classrooms look great and colorful. I would have loved to hve had that much wall space when I was teaching second grade.

    As I went into my room today I had visions of your beautiful classrooms dancing in my head. They had laid new flooring and were supposed to have moved all the furniture back in on Friday. Ha. I was crushed to see that my bookshelves, desk, chairs, crates of crafts and themes, file cabinets, easy chairs, ...... everything was randomly stuck in 3 different classrooms in my hallway. Gymnastics equipment and other teachers' stuff was stuck in my room. The closet doors were not replaced. It is a nightmare. I worked for 3 hours or so until my arthritis was killing me. I am so angry

    I don't blame you- that stinks! I am very lucky that our custodians love us and treat us like we are their children. My mom teaches kindergarten in a different county and is constantly amazed at how wonderful our custodians are to us.

    I had almost the same situation last year! :( I had all this storage stuff in my classroom up until the week before school started! It was HORRIBLE... I know how angry you are...

    I feel bad for the teacher next to me; maintenance had to put down new carpeting this week because she had a crack in her floor that they had to repair... :(

    Teacher60624: Are your walls painted that color or is it paper? Very bright! I like it. My walls are just plain white and we can't do anything to them because the building is on lease to us for another year (hopefully our new school will be finished then).

    Check out my web site to see some of the pictures from last year. The pictures I took of my classroom aren't on there. I took them only for reference for me. I just got a new digital camera, so pretty soon I'll start playing with it in the classroom. I'm changing alot of stuff this year.

    My walls are 'painted' that color because they are all corkboard over the actual wall. It's pretty amazing because I can just staple everything up on the walls, and even if I don't they are colorful! :) I really like it.

    Oh, and you have a very nice website.

    Great pictures! I was just told yesterday that they are done cleaning and working in my room, so tomorrow I am going to go over there and figure out what I need to do to start setting up. It is completely overwhelming! The teacher in there before me moved to a different room, so he took everything with him. It is soooooo bare, it is going to need A LOT of work! I am excited to be able to start on it though.

    What a neat idea to share classroom! Since I am a new teacher, I have no room to share but I love watching the different rooms. They inspire me to be creative in my own classroom. I have to wait until the middle of August to see my room and decide what I will be doing. Keep sharing. :angel:

    Here are some of my favorite classroom picture links. I love having a peek at others rooms. It is so fun and inspiring!

    http://www.geocities.com/lilcountrykindergarten/pictures.htm A few of the links are no longer active. Sorry, but I don't have Front Page installed on my new computer and my dial-up access at home prevents me from getting very far with updates.
