A Clean Start and Great Storage

My classroom furniture was moved out of my room this weekend and they have started waxing my floors.  Our school custodians are amazing!! They helped us move everything out and did a great job.  I am def. going to buy them lunch one day this summer for all their hard work and how helpful they are.  Hopefully I can get my furniture back in my room tomorrow afternoon or Thursday morning!! I am so excited to get everything organized and put up my new decorations!
I was playing in one of my favorite places on earth this weekend-aka Target- and I discovered their new (well new to me!) line of mix and match storage containers. It is called itso. They have laminate and plastic storage cubes in a variety of colors. You can add shelves to the plastic cubes.  Then you add plastic and fabric drawers and shelves which also come in different colors, sizes, and prints.  I got two plastic cubes and two large fabric drawers to put my Shared Reading Center in next year.  I suggest checking it out!

  2. They have a builder tool at target.com that is fun to play around with or you could do what I did-start building with them in the middle of target!

  5. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one excited about setting up my classroom over the summer. Every year I feel like a little kid playing school when I set up my room. I'm also jealous of all your space. My room feels like a closet!
