Classroom Reveal: Part 1

Well, my classroom is almost done! Whew! Thanks to all of you who posted ideas on what to do about my group table dysfunction. I decided to fix it by adding a table or two. (No I'm not crazy). I've been hoping to make the switch from desks to tables, but chairs are at a premium at my school. Here's my compromise:
This is the view from the front of my room, looking towards the back. I (and when I say I, I mean hubby) took out twelve desks and we moved that table from the front of the room. I also added one. 

Here's a view from the side of the room, sort of looking towards the front corner. See the round table? I plan to lower it a little and make crate seats to use during small group. You can see the shelf with the manipulatives on it, too, within easy reach. Yay!

Here's that front area where my table used to be. Thanks to the carpet (which we salvaged after redoing my son's bedroom), I'll have a great meeting area that the whole group can fit into. Here's a better view of that corner area. It's hard to see my CRAFT board in this pic because of the lighting.
So, that's round one, folks! I hope to finish everything up within a few days and I'll post the completed classroom pictures with several close-ups. What do you think so far?

  4. It looks so clean and inviting!! I love the layout of the room!

  5. Thanks, everyone! I was really concerned that I wouldn't be able to handle having both desks and tables because they wouldn't all be the same. But I love it! I guess you never know until you try :)
