    I have my classroom just about finished. Last year I bought new curtains and several other items, so I reused a lot this year. My challenge for the year was trying to fit 35 desks into my 27-desk classroom. I finally found space for 34 of them, but I had to remove several of my decorative items from previous years to make room.

    Now all that I have left to do is put fresh labels on everything and make the labels specific to my classes this year. That's a project I can tackle in a couple of hours over the weekend.

    My one remaining problem is that I've got a set of "clickers", but I have 32. Three of my four classes have 34 students. :help:

    Your classroom looks great, as usual! I always love looking at the way you set things up. It gives me ideas for my own class. Good luck with the clicker issue.

    I don't know what brand clickers you have, but I assume you can do this will all the brands. We had to "expand" a set of our clickers last year. I have the Classroom Performance System by eInstruction. I just called the sales rep for the company. She had me read off a number from the set and set me two new clickers. They were ready to go with the set I had and she put the numbers on top so they looked like they were part of the set not an addition! Try calling your rep and seeing what they say. I think each clicker cost around $75 or so. An added expense, but to me, totally worth it!

    I finally found an arrangement that I could live with. I have to turn sideways to walk between the rows, but I can walk comfortably around the sections.

    Now I worry mostly about not having a place to move kids when they just need some space. My "small" class is 32. Ugh.

    Looks great! My high school English teacher (12 years ago) had the same set up with the desks and I liked a lot. Although we didn't have near 34 students in the class! :eek:
