When I went in my room to set it up, this is how I started. It looks so empty!
And now I am getting so excited for my little student’s to come fill this space! I like to keep extra crayons (2 packs) in the skinny long containers, the round containers on the table are for table garbage cans (scraps of paper, wrappers, it is so handy to have these…and then each day a classroom job is to empty them), and then I have little caddy’s that hold extra pencils, scissors and glue.
And then each Friday I fill these buckets with the next week’s plans. This way I am all planned for the following week in case I need to call in sick. I also keep a sub folder in each one with specific details for each day of the week. This system works really well and I leave on Friday feeling really prepared for the upcoming week.
I also love this little area of my classroom. Parents have gifted me these pictures throughout the year and I love my scentsy. The bee is our classroom “mascot” who we call SuperBee. SuperBee goes home each night with a student who had Super Bee-havior and the kids get to fill out a journal page. It is a lot of fun to see what happens each day!
