For those of you that don't know, this coming year I will be working out of 2 buildings. I will teach (I don't know the grade yet) ELL in my home school and K and 1st ELL in my second school.
Anyway, I went into my 2nd school yesterday and I got to see my new space. I was expecting a small space. I am used to small spaces. I have learned to adapt and become very creative with small spaces. Although this new space is definitely a new challenge for me. Let me just say it is an odd shape.
This is the view from one of my doors.
Here is the view from my sink.
I get a sink!!!
Here is the view from the cabinets.
Here is the view from the door on the opposite side.
I have 1 of these bulletin boards, and I am working on getting a second.
I am also going to swap out the kidney table for two small rectangular tables. I can get more kids in that way. I teach small groups of children but I still like everyone to have their own space. I will put those tables in an L shape, like my teacher desk and guided reading area in my home school. I think that is my new favorite placement for tables.
I will use the two big closet doors for my word wall. The closet is not storage, it is an electrical closet. :/ I will use the bottom shelves of the the shelving unit for my reading center. The top will be used for teacher storage. I am not sure where I am going to put my whole group teaching area. I will have to spend more time in the room to get a feel for it.
I will post more when I spend more time in the room. I should have an update on Monday or Tuesday.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
