This week’s Classroom Showcase post is not a tour of a classroom but the (brief) story of how I had to set up my space in under 48 hours when we moved to our current location. These pictures are from 2010.
Step 1: Get Some Efficient Movers
Friday Aug 20th 7pm (in the garage)
We had the classroom materials and furniture stored in my cousin’s garage over the summer. I was afraid it would take all day to move that stuff but our movers were able to get it done in just a couple of hours.. phew!
Step 2: Bring in Reinforcements
This is not a job for one person.
(Where are the pictures of my fabulous helpers?!!)
I am so grateful to
~my sisters for coming in from out of town and working non-stop~
~my cousin and his kids for assembling all the furniture and doing the heavy lifting~
~my staff for putting out the materials on the shelves~
I feel SO lucky!
Step 3: Assemble Furniture
Step 4: Unpack
(Make Sure You Have a Good Organization System For Your Stuff.. and Sisters Who Know How You Think)
Step 5: Arrange the Furniture
MUST set up the office first!
Step 6: Put out the Materials
Step 7: Decorate
Stickers help make the sterile bathroom a little more welcoming
Plants, rugs, and a little art work
Step 8: Personalize
Gotta get those name tags done!
We got our Certificate of Occupancy on Friday evening and were ready for our students by Monday morning!
