I had the best teacher workday today! Not only did my friend Jess from Art Hive stop by with all kinds of goodies to donate to my classroom, but I did so much cleaning and organizing!
But wait, let's back up...here are some pics from when I first 'got my keys' and stepped into the madness that was my classroom;
I have been trying to organize as I go, starting in the front storage and the front half of the room. These areas were pretty clean but I did work on them some more today. Here is the front storage, all nice and neat ready for second semester!
This view shows basically the entire room, both the 2D (front) and 3D (back) halves. This classroom is so gigantic, I feel so lucky every day to have such a great space to teach in , especially considering last year I didn't have a room of my own!
...and THIS...this is where I spent most of the day- the 3D portion of my room. It really was still pretty unorganized. I still need to go through some cabinets and label things...but this is so much better. We will be focusing more on 3D for the second half of the year so I really needed to do this today. The first view show the view looking from the middle of the room to the back and the picture below that show the view from the back of the room looking to the front.
...this is the kiln room...still needs some work but much better. I think we are ready for some CLAY PROJECTS!
...and this folks is the last frontier...the back storage area. I can't even think about this area right now...hoping that if I tackle one shelf/area a week that by the end of the year this area will be good to go. If not...I know what I will be doing those last days before the break!
...then I came home and made my daily art!
