Hello! I've yet to participate in Teacher Week, because I'm not ready for a full reveal yet, but I've certainly been blog-stalking everyone else's great classrooms photos. Two years ago, I decided to blog about the process of setting up my new room and people started pinning my unfinished photos, so I decided this time that it was better to wait until I was closer to being ready.
Here is a photo of what my new room looked like AFTER a day spent cleaning it up. You don't want to know what it looked like with someone else's stuff all over the bulletin boards and on the floor! It was a bit of a disaster zone to say the least. Because I was on maternity leave last year, most of my belongings were still in my garage at this point.
Because I was in this room a few years ago, I am sharing a photo of my classroom library / whole group meeting space from the 2010-2011 school year.
Then, below is a current iPhone pic of my classroom library / whole group meeting area, which is almost complete. However, you might notice that my chapter book bins don't have labels yet and that there are no books on my thematic book shelf.

Thank goodness I still have two more weeks to get organized! Don't forget to check back for a full reveal next week...
