Getting Ready for September

On Tuesday, I spent the day in the classroom getting it ready for the first day of school. Every year I like to change around the classroom so that it is a new start to a new year. In June, I put all of the furniture to one side of the room and then I put all the rest of my belongings on the shelves in the coat room. This is what the room looked like yesterday morning.
Before I moved the furniture.
I decided to move the reading area.

New centres area.
New reading area. Now I need to put the books on the shelves.

I moved my desk to beside the SmartBoard.
 I am not finished setting up the classroom yet.  I will go in on Friday to do the finishing touches.  I will be putting clips on each desk to hold the book bags and math tool kits.  I will also paper the bulletin boards and tidy up the desk.

I am very excited to meet my new grade one students next week.  I hope that you enjoy your grade one classroom.
