In My Classroom

My son (Xavier, who just so happens to be a 3rd grader next year…though he won’t be in my class per my request ;)) has a pool play date with his daycare friends today so I decided to take advantage of being near the school to come in and do a bit of cleaning as the school will only be open to staff another day or so.  I knew we would have some cleaning crews coming through and I remember how I left my room…mainly everything off the floor and things on desks (which I left placed as I had when school was in session). I come in to find most of the furniture moved to the back of the room, and quite neatly so, it is rather impressive.  I am glad my principal did not ask me to do that.  As my husband knows I am not one for strategically stacking things in an effective way.  So here I am in my cleared out classroom and at loss for what to do.  I won’t be disturbing the very neat wall o’ my things the custodial crew has created in preparation for carpet cleaning, so that leaves my desk and bookshelves that aren’t blocked and perhaps my filing cabinet.  As with each summer break, clutter clearing is at the top of my list for home and work.  After a bit of blogging and some lunch, I think I have a plan on how to use the valuable Xavier-less hours to get some work done in my classroom.  Perhaps later I will post a photo of the custodial crew’s mad talent for stacking things… 😉
