Alas, the time has come to make our back to school preparations. Angie and I have started with a blank slate this year in a new room. We have done a lot of work to get our room ready for the kids who will spend the next 10 months learning and growing here.
Classroom Sneak Peek
The first time we entered our room last week, we stepped into a sea of boxes. Angie and I had about 200 boxes between us.
The amount of boxes was very overwhelming at first, but once we got started things really started coming together. It took us a good three days of work to get out from under all the boxes. We both felt very accomplished when we finally made it through all the boxes and agreed that neither of us wants to see another cardboard box for a very long time!
We were very excited when we finally had enough space in the room to set up our first center. The first center we were able to complete was the home center. Having two sets of everything enabled us to have two home centers. We decided to put them together to make two little apartments. The kids are going to have so much fun playing in this center and visiting their neighbors!
Finally having a place to put our rug was another big moment for us. It seemed like everywhere we turned our giant rug was in our way. I picked the rug up and moved it at least three times while unpacking to get it out of the way. When the boxes where unpacked enough to clear a space we immediately unrolled the rug!
A new addition to our room this year are these super cute garlands! My cousin makes garlands in her spare time and she created these three for us to hang in our classroom. We can’t wait to get these up and make the classroom feel more like our home away from home.
