Yesterday I walked into my 2nd grade classroom to get my furniture all set up. After all the desks were in, I must have had a small panic attack! Since it's my own first classroom, I'm starting from scratch. Does your school district provide a decent amount of books for your classroom library? Or are all the books in your library from your own personal collection? I have to ask the secretary once I go back tomorrow. I made a list of everything I have to get done, and it makes me want to throw up-- so much to do and even though I have until September, it doesn't feel like enough time. How long does it usually take to set up your classroom? How much of your own money do you end up spending for supplies? I have a feeling I'll be spending a good amount since it's my first year. Also, how many centers do you guys usually have? I will def. need to set some up because I spend an hour doing guided reading each day. So far I'm thinking listening center, math/science center, library center, games/puzzles, and writing. Any other good suggestions? Thanks!
