Well I am finally ready to show off my after pictures. It is still a work in progress, partly by choice (I like to leave room to put up things as we make them) and partly because I just couldn't get it all done. This however is a big deal...for a hoarder like me to show you an all over view like this. I will confess to being pretty proud of the progress I have made.

|You can see my signed prints (one from Steven Kellogg and one from Vera Williams). The one from Lindsay Barrett George broke, so it is waiting a new frame.|
|One of my mom's books (Patricia Thomas)|
Here is my word wall...the songs are from Hadar Maor. I keep them right on the wall, so I won't forget to sing them.
This is my small group table. The shelves behind are the next to get cleaned out (before I start up my groups). Red boxes have my chapter books (I did pack away all except the ones I hope some of my Kinders will be able to read), Yellow boxes are non-fiction. Non-fiction probably needs the most work. My library inspiration came from Mrs. Newingham. You can find her website here:
Lots of organizing still to go....but now that the big push for the first day...my room must be perfect...push is over I can focus on continuing what I started. Files, Labels, making it all work, kids, lesson plans....does it ever end? Next is to get my Peek at my Week ready for someone (besides me) to look at.
