My Spanish classroom set up

30 Jul

My first big decision (though an easy one) was to get rid of my desk.  I NEVER sit there and the students always want to sit there.  Problem solved.  My computer will be at a table.  I can sit at that table to check papers, plan activities, etc. Now that whole corner is more space in my room!

My brother-in-law is making me a shelf where I can put all of my supplies that used to be in my desk similar to this one:

I also have several other storage ideas, mostly thanks to Pinterest:

5 Gallon buckets that are also moveable seats

One of those “mechanics” organizers

File folders duct taped together.

There are a lot more shelves, containers, and classroom ideas at my Pinterest page.  Not a ton, because I am just getting started with Pinterest.  It sure is fascinating and addicting!

As I mentioned in a previous blog, one of my bulletin boards will probably be a place for review by students.  My white board is very large, so I envision sectioning off a part of it with a border and using it for agenda type info.

This week I am at a Great Expectations workshop, then my husband and I go on vacation.  I imagine soon after that I will be spending hours a day in my classroom setting it up.

I would love to hear your ideas or see pictures of your classrooms.

Gracias, Penny
