    Have any of you used this book to help with organizing a fifth grade room? I was considering it, and they dont have it in stock at my bookstore. I found it used for 20 bucks, but at the moment money is tight (when isn't it when you're a teacher?!) and I wanted some input first...

    Im sick of my classroom (small, crowded) and Im going to have the "Fifth Grade Purge-A-Thon" as I set up...

    Any advice on other books or websites that may help?

    I bought it last summer, and I used to help me organize my room. I still think about what I read and the pictures to determine how I want to set up my room. I recommend the book.

    :eek: Make sure to check your city fire code! Also, health department has banned all upholstered furniture, bean bags (unless vinyl) etc. due to head lice and flu. My cozy set up lasted only three weeks last year!
