Classroom Spaces 2012-2013
As you can see from my last posts with classroom pictures, I’ve decided to move some spaces around in my classroom this year. I’ve also been unloading 13 years worth of stuff to some new teachers in our building and getting some of it ready for a yard sale.
This is a look at my new library area. I hadn’t yet put everything out:
Here is what it looked like after I worked on it more today.
Here is a closer look. I got the shelf at Target for $51.99–they will probably go on sale soon for Back-to-College. They were about 1 1/2 months ago for $39.99, so if you like it, be watching!
Here is a new shelf that will hold some games and indoor recess items. It now has two boxes of LEGOS on the bottom two shelves.
These black art files were on clearance at Hobby Lobby for about $7 each. I used them to put all my posters in instead of using this brown drawer cart which took up lots of room and was a great place to stack things (junk). 🙂
This is my leveled reader shelf/baggie book shelf. Each Monday the children select four books to take home and practice and then return them on Friday morning to the right color dot box. The bottom three rows of shelves had lots of the readers that came with our past two reading series–I gave them away to our new K teacher and just kept the ones I like the best and that I’ve had for years.
The bottom three shelves now hold school supplies, opening up more space in one of my cabinets for other things. 🙂
Here is the small group area/Writer’s Work Station area that used to be my Library Work Station.
This is a closer look at the newer shelves that are next to my bench. The blue chair is the author’s chair. 🙂
Science work station
I put out my three tables and chairs that I got last year from IKEA. I’m not sure what I will use the one that is up closest in this picture, but I’m thinking a work station…

My 6 tables…each day when I go in, my goal is to clean off the tables before I leave. 🙂
The messy area under the loft near my desk.
I’ll have some more pictures tomorrow. 🙂
