Tonight we have a community open house. We are hosting it in order to raise awareness of the Project-based learning school, and increase interest. No biggie, right? Except that I have been moving over my teaching supplies and emptying the basement and it was piled high with stuff! Not to mention.... new-to-me classroom, there was no way I could just leave it the way it was. Bookshelves needed moved around. Extra tables moved out, and reading area firmly established!
Since I have been working at the daycare and have also been fighting some vehicle issues, I haven't been to the school as often or as early as I would have liked to have been. It made for a couple long days and some long nights.
I am sure this is not the finished finished product, because I know things I still want to do before school starts, but here is the before-it's-totally-finished finished product. This is where it shapes up and looks like a classroom and is ready for people to come and explore!

Sorry folks, no time for more today. Maybe I can reflect tomorrow, but the linky will be over. Sad and relieved at the same time!
