Falling into Place

Everything is falling into place quite nicely!

The teacher I replaced basically cleaned out the room.  Items that I've been told that were purchased with the school's money are gone.

A rug with roads that the boys loved to play with, was donated to the classroom (not the teacher) by one of the assistants, is gone too!


Replacement play rug - approved by Abby
(I think I might need to wear my readers when taking pictures with my phone!)
On one hand, I have a clean slate, I get to start with my own stuff.  On the other hand, I have to purchase or make my own stuff.  I am over $400 in setting up this classroom.  I am hopeful that at least some of the money I am spending will be reimbursed by the school.

Thankfully I do work at a great school and teachers have been giving and/or loaning me books, toys, and other items.  My assistants are WONDERFUL and cutting out and laminating items I've made for the classroom.

Pictures to come!
