A Peek at Last Year's Room

Saturday, August 4, 2012

Last year my class size increased from 24 to 27 kids.  You would think that 3 kids wouldn't make a huge impact in my room set up, but it did.  I had to convert my parent volunteer table (used daily for group work) to student desks.  This meant that I had to give my parent volunteers my horseshoe table and I moved myself to the floor during rotations.  You might be wondering why I didn't just put the parents on the floor working with groups, well, I count on parent volunteers to help me keep my group sizes small, so I wanted them to have a comfortable place to work to make sure that they would keep coming back.  This put me on the floor (not a comfortable place for my creaky old bones).  I decided that this year I need to find the space for another student table (each table seats six kids) so I'm rearranging my room once again.  Here is a look at some areas of my room last year.  I'm scouring blogs looking for inspiration.  I'll post pictures of my new room set up later.


  1. I can relate...we have gon from 20 - to 23 and now to 30..yikes! It's A LOT of kids in one little ol class. It's my 4th day back today. Have fun setting up. :o) Don't forget to add a ollower button so Icancome back and follow you.

  2. I'm new to blogging so I appreciate the feedback about adding a follower button-done by the way. I have set my room up to accomodate 30 little ones, but since we are an all kindergarten school, we never really know how many little guys we will actually have until the first few weeks of school. I am hoping that we stay at 30 (or below) but I'm adopting the attitude of "the more the merrier" this year. I will follow your posts too. Have a wonderful year and enjoy your 30 little ones!

  3. WOW! The most I have ever had was 21. You have such a great attitude. =)

    I cannot wait to see pictures of your room this year.

    I am happy to be your 1st follower. If you get the chance, I would love for you to hop over and visit me. =)
