More Room Cleaning

I went in yesterday to clean up the room some more. The photo doesn't show it, but the rug is badly in need of cleaning as is the linoleum floor.

The janitor has left the floor cleaning equipment in my room, and I think he'll get to my room over the weekend. Once that's done, I have just a day or two of work cleaning off the counters before delving into curricular planning.

Cubbies are in a new place in the room. I think this arrangement will help the room look neater by keeping the messes more self contained. Also the semi-enclosed space provides a bit of a refuge.

3 Weeks of Summer to Go

With three weeks of summer left to go, I've begun to come into the classroom and clean up the room. Here's what my desk looked like as I left for summer vacation....

And how it looked this afternoon:

I've split the tasks into about a dozen discrete 3 hour jobs, so by the time we get to mid August the room should be ready and the plans for the school year ahead sketched out.

Be sure to let your child get plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and exercise in the final weeks of summer.

See you soon!
