Before and After

I've spent a good chunk of time these past few days in my classroom...I thought I would show you some before's and after's!

Before:


 Oh so messy and disorganized!!

2 days and 6 1/2 hours, some bruises and a sore back/arms later...
Math Section-Science on top

Literacy Section
Social Studies  Section-Science on top

 Doesn't it look gorgeous! I still have plenty of space to add things (especially once I get my piloting materials!) and it looks so clean (it better be, I used up almost a whole container of disinfecting cleaning wipes!) and everything is so much more accessible!

Before:
Closet Space
ummmmm...I have no words-although I will say it was mostly left like this when I came in last year

3 hours, a trash bag and a haul (or 2) to the free pile later...
I can't put a lot (really anything) due to the sprinkler in the closet and fire regs- lost space :(
Look at it! It is so pretty...and color coded :) Be still my heart!

I can see everything, and know how much of everything I have...something I had no idea of before! This will make ordering a whole lot easier next year (fingers crossed that I'll still be there!), and I'll have a good idea of how much I used so I don't over order.

My classroom is almost done...probably one more day next week (after the math materials arrive so I can put them away.) It's starting to come together!

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn

  1. I'm just going to be honest and say that your closet reminded me of mine last year. I opened it at the end of the year to clean it out and was like "oh.my.word." Isn't it amazing how we let it get so bad???
