I told you I painted my classroom, right?

It's not perfect but it looks at least 9 bajillion times better than it did before the paint job!!!

Almost ready 1

I'm standing by one of my doors and the other door is down at the other end of the white board.

I'm kinda standing where I'll be sitting during my read alouds (the kiddos will all be on the rug for those)

Almost ready 2

Those closet doors won't usually be open but I was busy taking things in and out. Doesn't my green paint look lovely?

Almost ready 3

In the back is my guided reading table but you can't really see it under a couple boxes and piles of books I am still sorting. ;)

Almost ready 4

Almost ready 5

Almost ready 6

One more day that's all just MY prep. Then Wednesday we start officially with a full day of meetings, Thursday and Friday probably half day of meetings and half day doing our own thing or meeting in grade level and content level teams. Then Monday off, and the kids start Tuesday.

I'm sure on Tuesday I'll actually be FINE but the last five nights have been serious pre-school stress-anxiety insomnia. HELLO BRAIN, please turn off.

Gorgeous!!! I adore that green you chose (?)...

I'd tell you not to be nervous, but I suspect my admonitions will fall on deaf ears. You're a star and your students are so lucky you're their teacher.

Looks great! I love all the books in the classroom. I'm not sure what grade you teach, but if you need some books, let me know. My daughter is 13 now and has some books from her younger days that she is clearing out.
Oh -- and I do that stress insomnia thing too. I'm usually an awesome sleeper, but before something big, I can never sleep!

I would love to learn in your classroom. Heck, I'd come now, but probably wouldn't fit in the seats.

The boys have that planet rug in their room! (still. ugh. maybe they're getting too old for it? Ooops.) Hope all is well :)
