My Current Classroom State.

I can't even begin to tell you how jealous I am of everyone getting into their classrooms already to set up. (Yes, I do realize some of you start school sooner, but I'm just jealous!)

And if Abby, at The Inspired Apple doesn't stop coming up with the MOST **adorable** ideas for decorating her room, I might have to put reading her blog on hold until I'm in my own room! (just kidding, I could never stop reading her blog!)

BUT I was at school on Monday for a meeting and of course had to sneak down to my room. I moved classrooms at the end of the year & then they were painting the walls, so everything is a d.i.s.a.s.t.e.r. and I am by no means exaggerating the term! I snapped some photos to share & have as my before photos.

Here is what you see when you're standing right in my doorway. My room this year is a little bit bigger (I believe), but the layout is **SO** not pre-school friendly!

I would love to get rid of that globe. I don't use it, but apparently there is an abundance of unused globes in our building & no one wants it!

Here is a shot from standing over by the windows you see on the right.

One last photo I have from standing on the steps to the loft.

So, as you can see. I have quite the mess on my hands. That big piece with the cabinets where the TV is does not move either.

I would love suggestions, ideas, or stories about having a loft in your classroom. Do you love it, hate it? Do you even let you students use it?!

That loft is awesome! Probably not for Pre-K though... The ceilings in my room are out-of-control tall - I wonder if I could convince my principal to let me build a loft!! :)

Marvelous Multiagers!

The loft is awesome but I agree not sure how I'd feel about my babies being in it either! I'm right with you about being jealous..I can't get in my classroom yet and it's killing me.

Yeah, we probably won't use the loft for the first month or so of school & then there will be some pretty serious ground rules involved that's for sure!
