The journey has begun. Room 6 here I come.

I have had a very busy weekend and day yesterday.  We packed my room, and now it's sitting in the hall waiting for it's new home.  Every time I have moved over the years I always realize I have so much stuff and need to down size.  The problem is....when I buy something new, I hardly ever take anything out.  Hopefully this move will change some of that. 
Last look at room 8 all put together

Another view
Here is all of my mess as we start packing it all up.
All the mess that has to be packed.
Empty shelves.  Yippee!
Never fear the junk is still here.
And here......
Almost empty room except my table and a shelf.  They are next.
It's all in the hall now.  All the way down the hall that is.  Sorry my downhill 1st grade friends.

See you in room 6.  I love to hear any of your organization ideas.

Another group of rock stars are now 1st graders

Hi Everyone.... I have not been on here very much lately.  We were in the process of finishing  our last few weeks of school and it was like you all know crazy.  We did some really cute plant things and made great maps, and believe it or not I did not take pictures.  
Now......... I'm in the process of taking room 8 apart and moving to room 6.  You got it....3 feet.  :-)  The great part is that the carpet will be pulled up so hopefully this teacher will not stay so sick with allergies next year.  The bad thing.....I'm having to move everything to the hall until the room is ready sometime this summer.  
You always realize you have more things than you will ever need when you start moving. So...my buddy and pal Tiffany (sniff, sniff, sniff) who has been with me for the last 3 years is reaping the benefits.  She will be student teaching in the fall and leaving me.  So very sad, but so very happy for her.  
Next year will be a new beginning in lots of ways.  So I will be checking out your blogs looking for lots of classroom ideas and set ups over the summer.  The problem is....my room is not even close to the size of most of the ones I see online.  Got to think on a smaller scale. 
Anyway....it's been a fun year blogging with you all and look forward to another school year of blogging fun.
