A Starting Place
I'm organizing our classroom bookshelf. I've always had in mind how I want it to work--like things together (near each other), things for the children in reach, books I don't want them into--out of reach! (smile). Well, after a few years of having this wonderful bookshelf, I am finally taking the time to get it the way I'd like it.
A little background: I usually start off with it heading in this direction, but usually run out of time (or get tired of seeing boxes full of books) and just start putting things on it. This time I let the children help me....lol
I've already been working on it a day, pulling things I don't need/want anymore and making stacks on the floor around the room. So far, this is how it looks (don't gasp!). Today I've taken out my sticky notes and written little subject/category headings and placed them where I'd like to find these things. Simple enough, huh?
We'll see. I'll take/post a finished photo when I get there (I'm hoping later day....if I don't have too many interruptions).
It's a good starting place, if nothing else. :D
