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?
