My Mind's in the Gutter Today

I got quite the reaction when this was my title in an email I sent out to staff.  I had LOTS of responses looking to hear something juicy...but that's not the case.  I'm sure I could've come up with something good.

Just thought I'd share a NEW organizational feature I added to my classroom!

How many of you have a book display in your room?  It has ALWAYS driven me crazy!  I never know where to put it.  The kids lay on it, try to crawl behind it (even when it's against the wall), and the books fall down beneath.

So...I decided to use a 10 ft. gutter!!  Try fitting that into a car.  It does work, believe me I did it last night.  I went to Lowes and bought a guttah for about $6.

It fit perfectly in my car and I set it up in my room this morning.  Now, it would be interesting to see how many more I could fit in my car.

So far, the kids are LOVING it!!  This is a much better way to display books and it takes up less space.  Gotta love that.

Not liking how the books look...


  1. I did this in several places throughout my new room. LOVE it!!

    1. I love that it doesn't take up very much space. I plan on adding one to the front of the room too!!
