I am so very excited!!! I got to see my new 5th grade classroom today! The wheels in my mind are spinning out of control...:) I absolutely can't wait to get it there, get all the science supplies and things already there organized, and then move my
junk, I mean things in! I am pleased with the room. I was afraid it would be really small, but I think it is going to be big enough. The school is kind of a hexagon shape with a sunken library in the center which is really cool. The problem is the rooms are an awkward shape, kind of wedge shaped, but I can definitely work with it! Here are some pictures. The bulletin boards are still up, they are not mine. I can't wait to do my thing in there! Here you go....any ideas or comments are welcome...:)
That's my mom in one of the pictures, sshhh, don't tell her I put that one on! She would not be pleased...;)
I am really happy with the neutral colors in the room...lots of shades of grey.....not 50 like the book series everyone is raving about! The door and the chairs are blue, but I can work with that! I don't have a closet, but I do have a ton of cabinets as you can see. I am thinking about turning this big file cabinet and putting a tension rod between it and the wall to hang a cute curtain from to hide the bright colored storage boxes of science stuff that you see on one of the counter tops. Those colors will clash with my color scheme so I am hoping to make them disappear, but still have easy access! I only have one window, but that will just have to do. Overall, I am very pleased and can't wait to get started!
Oh yeah....I almost forgot the cat nap!
|The flash woke him up...:)|
This is one of the baskets I bought last week at the thrift store. You can read more about that haul here. I was wondering what I was going to store in them....I guess I don't have to wonder anymore....LOL! This is my kitty Bashful...he loves to sleep on or in anything new that enters the house! Isn't he sweet?
