Remember the pictures from yesterday?  Take a look at just what an hour or two’s worth of work can do:

This picture didn’t turn out too good, but it’s the view to the right from the door.  My desk, the carpet, a table or two and the ActivBoard.

Still some stuff on the windows, but can you see a classroom starting to take shape?  I am really excited about the way this part of the room worked out.  The blue shelf will be cubbies for some of you.  The empty shelves on the left will be the library.

Just inside the door: table, yellow cubbies, a desk and a round table.  All the stuff on the counter will move and that will be the art center.  See the green wall to the left?  It looks like this:

I’m pretty excited about it.  I mean yes, eventually it will have stuff covering that all up, but I love how it speaks to our construction theme.  You will start to see more of that CAUTION tape creeping up around the room soon.

I worked some more today, but forgot to take pictures.  I’ll do that when I go in again tomorrow.

Hope you got your letter today (or yesterday!).  Watch your mailbox for a note from me, too!  🙂

  1. It’s amazing how different the room looks. How long did it take you to do the whole room? I would not have been able to do that. I didn’t know that you started your blog this early in the year,I bet you didn’t have as many followers when you wrote this then you do now.I’ll have to read these more often. -Camille

    • Camille–I think I spent about 2 weeks putting the room together. Not all day, and it was just weekdays–so like 10 days–but yes, it takes a long time! Have you ever seen the classroom like that before? Crazy, right? And you’re right, I do have many more followers now than I did when I wrote that post. It seems like a long time ago to me. And I’m wondering, what’s your favorite part of our blog? Do you have any suggestions?

  2. I’m looking forward to the break. Where are you going for Thanksgiving? Our family is going to my grandma and grandpa’s(my dads parents)house to eat dinner,like we do every year…I love cranberries…sorry-random thought-had to write it down. See how I’m using all this new punctuation?! I think that if you ever don’t know what to write as a post(like that would happen with our class) you should write about a post you already posted. That sounded funny-apost you already posted. I just can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving. I hope you have fun and eat lots of pumpkin pie, yum. Your favorite student,

    • Camille–I love school, but there is just something great about 5 days off with your family, isn’t there? My family all lives here (I’m really lucky!), so we’ll be with Grant’s family for lunch and my family for dinner–probably at my house. It’ll be busy, but really fun. I love that you shared that random thought about cranberries, and I love even more that you used all that new punctuation! So when you say I should write about a post I already posted (hee hee), do you mean I should revisit the same topic and write something different about it? That’s a great idea, and something you can do in your Writer’s Notebook, too. Did we ever talk about that strategy in class? If not, we should teach everyone else about it. Thanks for reminding me!
