A Blank Slate

I’m starting at a new school this year.  New challenges, new kids, and ta-da… a new classroom!

Unfortunately, I’m only allowed to look at it from the doorway; like Romeo and Juliet in the balcony scene, I can only love it from afar.

Floors need to cure and a window needs to be installed.  These things take time and nothing is ever simple.  Hopefully, we can get it all together by the first day! Say a little prayer!

If you have any ideas for the space, please leave them in the comments.  We’re all ears!

That plywood will be a window soon!

    That is probably the cleanest you will see that room ever again. Use the pole as a part of a natural divider. Perhaps one side is a dramatic play area. Use that cubbie wall for maybe the alphabet and word wall or creative writing wall. just a copy of ideas.

    1. Thanks for those great ideas! I’m sure it will never be that clean again!

  2. Photos of teeny-tiny things – elf doors, miniature towns, miniature food, model train sets, doll houses, animals (real and plastic). I could stare at photos like that ALL DAY. Wait… unless you don’t want the kids just staring at awesome photos all day? Hmmm. Maybe just a soft bed then.

    1. The soft bed is for me? That’s an awesome idea – how I will sleep with 30 little kids running around, I’m not sure!

    You will make it an awesome and welcoming place for discovery and learning, because you are an amazing teacher!

    1. Thanks Tammy! I hope everyone has a wonderful year!
