As you may know, I've been hard at work de-cluttering my classroom. I started with the closets and am about halfway through that project. Don't worry! I haven't given up. I just need a decent amount of time to put into it (and the help of my teacher friend). We will get back to work on it on Monday!
However, I did conquer my teacher's desk project!! Check it out, I completely got rid of my desk and I could not be happier.
This is the inside. So much stuff. So messy. And so not mine. (still leftovers from the teacher that I took over for 3 years ago)
And now it's completely empty! Woohoo!
Okay, I'm pretty neat. But not this neat! This was after I started to clean so it's not a good representation of my old dumping ground.
The front view. Takes up a lot of space, huh?
Anddd wah-lah! Desk gone. New table in place. I LOVE it! I added the drawers to the side to store my stuff. I really like the small drawers because it's so much easier to organize and find stuff.
Here's the front side. I bought the stools from Christmas Tree Shop because they're easier to move and store. And I like the colors. My kids absolutely love them! It's so funny, they beg to use them and rush to be the first one to sit on them.
I was a little nervous about getting rid of my desk, I'll admit it. But so far it's been great. It ensures that I don't have too much clutter and I use the table all the time to meet with the kids.
I also posted two posters to my TpT store today (remember how I can't draw anchor charts to save my life?).
One I am going to use to teach Sensory Images during Reader's Workshop:
And the second one I am going to use for teaching my students how to write small moment stories.
And that leads me to another way to win my giveaway! I always come up with extra chances AFTER I publish my post. Oh well. Anyways, I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Teachers Pay Teachers!
If you rate one of my products on TpT (free or not), leave me an extra comment on my Giveaway and a Freebie post. Good luck!
