I was at school most of the day today and was able to do some cleaning and arrange the room how I think I want it to be. Everything I own for teaching is in the room, but it's still so empty. I need toys and math manipulatives badly! But I still have my $250 to spend. Here's what I have so far: View when walking in Another view The other corner of the room I'm planning on having just pencils out on the tables, and using the cubbies to store their pencil boxes, which will contain markers, crayons, scissors, and glue sticks. The mailboxes under that bulletin board will be for gym shoes, projects, take-home folders, etc. Looking the other way The writing/art area Obviously, I have to add a lot of materials still! I'm going to hang that white board up where it is sitting on the floor, and I have alphabet magnets and markers to go with it. My completely empty housekeeping area Group/circle time area The shelf is going to contain blocks, Knex, and other toys that they can play with at the carpet. The shelf is on wheels, so I'm going to turn in around until free time. My soon-to-be library I'm waiting on getting a book display to put on the left side to make it more of an enclosed space. I'm also going to have pillows, bean bags, etc. Suggestions welcomed!
