I like my room (except for the fact that one wall is yellow, one wall is green, the shelves are peach, the rug is blue, and I think one more color that I can't remember right now.) I have a big room with lots of light (even a skylight!) and a kid's bathroom (essential). I have to house two teacher desks (one assistant's desk and one teacher desk) but I am considering using my desk as the projector table.

|Circle time-last year I covered the chalkboard with whiteboard cling. Looks much better-I can't stand that putty colored chalkboard!!|
It is exciting to think of doing some new things in the room.
I love polka dots and we start off with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom so I have some polka dot bulletin boards and I bought more polka dot borders. I got a polka dot pencil holder, too.'
My file cabinet is in the closet- I hardly ever use it. I am trying to store more things digitally. I just need to get more organized- folders and such.
I am going to switch some of my MP3 players to ipods/old iphones. (oooooo! right? The kids will probably wonder why they can't watch youtube videos-that's what my granddaughter does and she isn't even two yet!). I need to set them up with the cover pictures of the books I have on mp3. I read about it somewhere....I may need to google that! I saw it on Jessica Stanford's site, too (scroll down and look at her ipods).
I am also considering using some shelves as dividers and making the rug area more separate. Not sure until I go in and push things around. I am exhausted just thinking about it.
I have bunches of things to print out and laminate.
I have a huge team this year: five teachers, two special ed teachers, two and a half reg ed assistants, two special ed assistants, and I think a one on one for special ed (but I haven't heard yet). So I need to coordinate a bunch of schedules.
So I guess I should get busy!!!
