The kid side of the bookshelf has been driving me nuts lately. I have mentioned how its a mess before but, it got on my nerves today. I pulled all the books off and reorganized them. The kids were in shock. We talked about, again, how we are lucky to have so many books and need to take care of them.
This neat and clean feeling led to me organizing the other side of the bookshelf. And my other set of shelves. If you remember, I inherited this classroom and so many things in it. During the summer, teachers so kindly gifted me with more things. It has really helped my classroom grow. The bookshelves held the most of these items. They are now sorted and organized now.
The next step is my teacher station behind my guided group table. It is a disaster itself. Stay tuned for that project!
There is something about an organized classroom that makes it feel so much lighter. If only I could keep it this way. 😛
