I was supposed to do a Merin’s Musing post today, but instead I’m going to share pictures of my classroom! I am super pleased with the way everything looks and basically just want you all to bask in my joy. :D The room does look similar to last year – there’s only so much you can do with limited space – although this year I have fewer desks (less students = fewer desks, hurrah) and also moved the table from the side of the room to the back. I also shifted the big blue cabinet over (you can see it below) and added a little shelving unit, and rearranged “my” corner of the room as well. Anyway, here’s what it looks like!
NOTE: This post is really image-heavy. Sorry in advance if that causes issues!
View from the corner where my desk is.
In front of the back table, aiming towards the left.
Same spot, only this time pointing to the right.
Our gathering spot for Morning Meetings and read-alouds, as well as our Writer’s Workshop Mini-Lessons.
The cabinet that the custodian was able to move (YAY to infinity!), and my new shelving unit to give me some extra storage space.

The back table, where I will work with small groups. I am STUPIDLY EXCITED about that pocket chart stand!
“My” corner of the room.
Yay! I really kind of love how everything looks. Like, a whole lot. <3 <3 <3
