Thank you to Ruth for giving us the inspiration and the space to share celebrations every week!
This week I had two school days. One day was meetings and the other was working in my classroom. A few days ago I wrote about this quote...
In reflecting on those words I realize that I often stress out during the opening of school because I am comparing myself with those around me. To help me with this, I sat down and I wrote about returning to school and I made plans for my classroom.
I decided to break it down into steps, so this week I organized the furniture. I thought about "dead" space from last year and I played with the arrangement. This week, I'll organize the books and bulletin boards and the walls. I celebrate growth and acceptance. I know who I am and I am accepting that I am enough.
Here are some pictures to help you (and me) see the progress. Here's the what the space looked like when I first walked in...
With some thought and arranging, this is how it looks now. I'm really excited about this area...
I celebrate changes.
I celebrate moving.
I celebrate confidence.
I celebrate this classroom space!
