Summers off? What is that? I think I have worked on my class or stuff for my class since the last day of school. Can I get an Amen?!
I haven't left school at all this summer.
The custodians know I am there, I buy them coffee! They see my hot mess of a room in all its glory and me swearing at all the stuff I have that I really
need want to keep in my room but don't have the space for. You know where I am coming from - I can't throw it away even though I have not touched in three years. You know the minute I throw it out, someone will need it, or the curriculum will change and I will need it. I am a hoarder by nature and it does worry me some, but I figure as long as it is organized, its all good.
This was my room with all of my stuff outside in the hallway with the exception of this mess on the shelf. Seems like I am off to a great start - right?
Then this disaster happened!!! What the heck! Why does it look so bad? I spent so much time putting stuff neatly away so that this wouldn't happen when I brought all my stuff back in, but yep - it happened anyway!
These are all of my read aloud books that I tried to put in every open space I had, but I ran out of bins and space so they just went everywhere. This is going to take me hours and hours to finish!
My Art Closet before an after. I just love the supply list so I know what is on there!
This has changed so much over the years!!! WOWSERS
This is a three year progression. Look at how I have evolved! ha! I still don't know if I totally like the new ones though - may be changing them again. We'll see.
My old crayon drawers worked well, but I am in love with these ones!
This is my teacher toolbox over the last few years. Big changes here too!
My big wardrobe closet. This was the biggest eye sore, and now I love opening the doors!
This is one of my favorite updates. I loved the yellow and purple, but love the purple and blue so much more. I also am starting to take pictures with my more professional camera, so these awful pictures from last year can stop haunting me.
Ok there you have it with a few of my before and after pictures.
