This is my first week on the new job. It's a work week for me, no kids til next Tuesday. Right now I have five on my list. My classroom had so much stuff in it when I walked in there on Monday I thought about sitting down and having a good cry. When there's that much stuff, you don't even know where to start. Brain overload. Then I was told whatever I didn't want I could move across the hall to an empty classroom. Hallelujah!
Today I spent a big chunk of my morning organizing the books. There were quite a few that I inherited, plus my own stash from Goodwill. So I combined them and put them in baskets. Just need to type up some new labels and that's done.
Here's what the room looked like this morning. There's a carpeted area and a linoleum area where the tables are. The kids have tables instead of desks.
