Class us up and running, even if it is not completely perfect. This is a big thing for me. I am not a perfectionist but I like to try to be. :P However, this year my motto is "It will get done eventually."
Here is my next installment of Operation Classroom...
This is a view from the door.
Some of this has actually changed a tiny bit but the layout of the tables and chairs has not.
This is a view from the opposite side.
As you can see I have two tables that seat 4 (possibly 6) on the left side of my teacher table.
Each table has two supply, pencil and crayon baskets.
Two students (possible 3) share those supplies. For now i have them on the edges of the tables, but should I have to add that 3rd student the baskets/ caddies will move to the center of the tables.
Here is another view from the front of the room.
AND here is my teacher table. The chair was inherited from a fellow teacher who is now retired and living it up on the golf course. The table is kind of messy at the moment but you can see I have got two trays, one for my random papers and the one to the left will hold my daily student work by grade level. You could subjects instead of grade levels. Here is where I also have my beloved projector and Doc Cam. Don't know how I taught without them. There is also a plastic box that houses all of my teaching items so that I don't have to share the bogie covered crayons with the kids. It also allows me to model what it is like to keep my materials clean, neat and orderly.
My third table makes an L with my teacher table. This table is for those students who I want to keep near for whatever reason, ie: behavior or extra support, etc.
I have so many little things I want to share about this space, ie: my bulletin boards, but they really deserve their own post so I will save them for another time. Now it is your turn. What does your whole group table/ desk space look like?
