This is my newly designed storage for the kids' book baskets for independent reading. Most recently it was a storage unit for old math manipulatives I haven't used in a while. I donated them to a new Kindergarten teacher--well placed in her room for her to decide if she wants them. The numbered trays 1-4 will house my math work stations.
And the beginning of my new non-fiction section of the classroom library. I did have this bookcase set perpendicular to the wall which used up valuable floor space. I moved it back (toward the air conditioner/heating unit). It has to sit a few inches out from the unit in order to not cover the vents. I hot glued a small bulletin board--really a foam board from Dollar Tree covered with fabric and border. I can place information about our unit of study on that and have an area for book display also. The baskets are sorted by themes.
The twin bookcase to the previous mentioned one has been moved below the bulletin board pictured above. I didn't take a pic of it. It houses my fiction "leftover" books that I don't have enough for a basket by theme or author. I'm going to place my literacy station choices on top of that bookcase.
Now, I do feel that I have accomplished something this week.
Tomorrow--I never know what I'll change or organize until I take a glance around the room.
