Remember when I fell? Well, here is what I was organizing when I busted my behind. They are the wonderful Really Good Stuff organizers. I got 4 with the help of the very generous Tamara from TBA and Teaching with TLC. She graciously awarded me with her Really Good Stuff certificate. I am SUPER appreciative.
I plan to use these containers to organize my themes and activities by Qtr. I am sure I will post more about this at a later date. I do have to say they are not the color I envisioned them to be from the website. HOWEVER, they match much better with my color scheme than the others so it was a happy coincidence. Can you see they match perfectly with my cart.
Here are the tubs I bought with the rest of the gift certificate, also from Really Good Stuff. Again the colors are not what I thought they would be but I can live with it.
Now if I could only get this organized. :/ It is a source of distress for me. I try not to look at it when I am in my room.
I did put up the letters on my Word Wall. It is almost finished. This is the longest it has EVER taken me to put up a word wall. I just want to put up a title. I was thinking of "Word Wave."
Finally, I set up and pluged in my classroom computer. If you remember I just about cried when they took the computer out of my class last year. this year the librarian has a few extra and she graciously offered me one for my room. I saw another teacher in my district set her's up on a bottom shelf in her room and I liked it. So I thought of this. I do have to clean the top of the cart, it is pretty gross. I think I will laminate a sheet of paper that my students can use for a mouse pad on the floor. More on this workstation/ center later.
I did make it in to my 2nd school yesterday, and I got a look at my space. All I can say is that I am going to have to get creative again. I did take pictures and will post them tomorrow. So stop back you may have a wonderful idea for me.
