A Blank Canvas
I finally got to spend a little time in my new classroom yesterday. Here are the before pictures! It's funny, I had been to the room once before and in my mind of picturing what I was going to do, and where I was going to put things, I made the room much smaller in my head. There is sooooo much empty areas, and so much empty wall space, I am not sure I will be able to fill it all! I really want to have a little cooking/kitchen area, a small reading area and a craft area. I spent 4 hours there yesterday. I unpacked about 6 boxes, worked on the bulletin board and moved a few thing around. This is going to be a longer process than I thought. The desk you see will be gone today, I guess it belongs to another teacher and he wants it back. I have asked for a few bookshelves, another cabinet, another filing cabinet and a desk. I hope I won't have to wait until right before school starts to finish unpacking! If you have any pointers or tips, I would LOVE to hear them, especially in filling in wall space.
