First the pictures, then I will share some of my ideas.
This looks like it might be a reading/library area. I am praying I can find a different piece of carpet somewhere for a reasonable price. If not, I'll make do. Also hoping I can find some big pillows or cushions to line the wall. Hoping I can find some sort of baskets or bins to organize the library.
I bought some small white curtains to go over that window. As you can see, it is a chalkboard! Which is fine. I am one of those who prefers a chalkboard over a dry erase board. Student desks. Not sure how I am going to arrange those yet.
A view of the room from the teachers desk. Yes, that material map will be coming down. Will try to find a different spot for it. :) I can't wait to get there so I can see if I can do some rearranging.
View of the teacher desk area. Those curtains are coming down! :) I've found some cute ones at Walmart, of all places. :) Pic posted below.
Another view of the room. I see a lot of potential! Here is my main dilemma. I can only take two suitcases at 50 pounds each. So, I am limited to how much school stuff I can bring with me. But, regardless, there are some things I have to take with me, as they are difficult to find there.
I am not really a theme kinda girl. However, I usually have color schemes. I am thinking yellow and green with polka dots. Here are some things I picked up today. (BTW, the Carson Dellosa items were 20% off)
LOVE these letters. AND they are already pre-cut. I am investing in a small personal laminator to take with me. They weigh about 4 pounds, but I think it will be worth the sacrifice of an extra pair of shoes or two. :)
Pictured above are letters, name tags for the desks, name tags for the students, and some accents I will use in the room to label things.
My bulletin board border. LOVE. :) I was told the school does have bulletin board paper. I am hoping they have green and yellow. If not, I 'll just make do with whatever is available.
My alphabet boarder.
The curtains I found at Walmart. The picture is not very good. But they are green with white polka dots. I was excited to find these!
So, there you have it. I have got my work cut out for me. BUT I am up for the challenge. I think the hardest thing for me is not being able to get in my room now! I usually like to work on my room a little at a time all summer. This year, I have to wait until I get there. That is why I am trying to get my stuff together and get a plan of action so I can hit the ground running.
PLEASE leave me a comment if you have any ideas or suggestions!
