Off to school!

You saw the "before" picture, and you saw the "during," now here's the "after."

the big picture -- taken from the entrance to the room

"my" corner, with my desk and the computer pod

That's El Grande in the background helping out. He saved me a lot of time!

Science corner, with posters, new vocabulary, and kits (still in the boxes)

Classroom leveled library, also known as the Book Nook

Wow, I feel better. There is still work to do, mainly planning for the rest of the week, but the room looks a lot better. I could welcome a visiting parent now, and last week I would have panicked at the thought. Now the only panic is wondering if I'll really have all of my lesson plans ready when the kids come in the door! Somehow, it always works out. I will work at my desk all day today (Tuesday) and welcome the families to Open House tonight. By then, I'll have my plan book ready, and all of my art paper cut out, and the puzzles copied, and the chart paper posted, and ... oh, no, I'm panicking again. Where's the coffee?

Wow, that makes me wish I was going to school. I think I would be very happy hanging out there in the Book Nook.
