I am already looking ahead to next year before this year is even over. I am not in a classroom this year. I haven’t been in a couple years and as I transition back I am nothing short of giddy. I miss the students, the relationships, the fun had in learning. I have elicited my father’s help in making several items for my 6th grade class next year.
First, he made me a makerspace Lego table from the plans found on Anna White’s blog. I just have to stain it and will post pics when I have done so and have it all set up in my new room.
Second, I have asked him to make me one large PVC anchor chart holder for my main charts and 6 small table top PVC chart holders for my literacy centers which will hold the directions and needed notes for all centers.
I also explained my plans for alternative seating, what the makerspace will be used for, and what occurs in literacy centers. To which my father replied, “Sounds like all your doing is playing around and having lots of fun.”
YES!! Mission accomplished.
Can’t wait to post pics and share ideas throughout my teaching next year…stay tuned!
