Oh LOOK How My Room Shines!

I hope you're all enjoying the last few weeks of your vacation!!  My mind has been consumed with school again and making LOTS of lists.

My husband and I spent our summer hiking a bit and going to camp. July was a tough month for us. We lost our pup to cancer, which was very sudden and unexpected.  She was quite a spunky girl and we miss her lots!


I went to school this morning to spend the day getting my room arranged and organized.  My room looks SO big when nothing is in it.


Just look at those floors!!  So shiny and clean.  Our custodians do an amazing job at cleaning our entire school!!

So within just a few hours it went from the picture above to this...


I'm trying to find a new arrangement for my desks where students can easily get their materials.  I REALLY want to get rid of ALL the bins I have in my room so I'm hoping to keep their math manipulative kits, writer's notebooks, and science binders in the storage drawers.  I only bought one to see if I actually like the look of it.  It might take some time to get use to it but I'm going to give it a try this year.



The reading nook looks so cozy!!  I found the sign on the top shelf at Hobby Lobby and love the quote, "Kid, you'll move mountains."

I can't wait to meet all of you.  It's going to be a GREAT year.
