My room is (almost) ready!

I know some of you havenít been out of school long, but my room is almost ready for next year. I just need to clean desks and label things. Labeling will require rosters, which will be a bit longer.

It hasnít changed considerably for a few years, just some different furniture and some new supplies. It doesnít take me long to set up. I took DH with me twice for a couple of hours. Once we arranged furniture, and once he helped with stuff that required climbing. I did two days by myself, maybe 7 hours between the two, doing all the details.

They are getting ready to start waxing hallways, so we will need to be out of the building then. Open house is July 30, so Iím school free until then.

It looks great! Wow, you guys go back early. When did you get out? Some coworkers and I have mentioned that it'd be nice to get out earlier in the year and go back sooner...July and August are SO hot.

We were supposed to have gotten out May 17, but it ended up being May 31 due to days missed for snow & flu.

I love that you have areas that students can learn to use independently and make it easier for you!

It would be so nice to have matching chairs. I got new desks about 10 years ago, but the chairs have been around for about 30 years and they're all different colors.

Those are quotes. They are from songs, books, and interesting people. We have to take all instructional materials off the walls during testing, so I don't put up anything besides what I'm using at the time. The quotes took up that blank wall space nicely.

The kids like them, too.

I love it! What grade do you teach?

When do you start August 1st?

We start the 2nd week of August. It's coming quick. If I switch districts and go to CPS (chicago public school) I'd get 3 more weeks off.. I think about this every year.

Is this how it's left when you leave school? We have to cover everything and/or take things down and store stuff away. We can't even get into our rooms until the week or 2 before school starts because they pull all furniture out and wax our floors. Lucky you--it looks great!

No, we have to take down instructional materials during testing, which is the last two weeks of school. I donít put anything back up. We also have to get as much as possible off the floor. I have a large closet, so I get everything in it except my desk, the big tables, and the student desks. They start waxing floors the last day of school, and they are usually finished with the building by July 4th. As soon as mine is ready, they let me know because I like to do a few things here and there, not wait.
