NEW CLASSROOM

I previously wrote about moving our classroom . . . well, the move is complete. I am thrilled to give the kids a bigger space and I now have an office right next to the classroom where Mrs. P  and the kids are. We are waiting for a few rows of chairs to be moved from the classroom before we put up all of our posters, charts and fun stuff, but the basics are done.

The classroom had been moved last Thursday and Friday. It was quite the ordeal. So far we are only missing a few things . . . not sure what happened there! I promised pictures, so here they are . . .
Now remember, the walls have not been decorated yet.

Randy will be taping down all cords this next week.
Each of the kids now have a new BIGGER desk with one large drawer in the center. I purchased colorful crates to hold all of their school books, notebooks, etc. They also each have new Dell All In One Computers! The screens are so big, the kids actually feel like they are part of the Abeka Academy Classes. 
The items in the back half of the class are theater seating (this room used to be the City council chambers) and need to be unbolted from the floor and moved out.


This is Ryan's desk. 

Aliyah's desk.

This is the front half of the classroom.
There are actually six desks

Art on my door.
I love that I am located right next to the classroom.
I get little kid visits throughout the day and I am always 
there to help out.

Friday, Cody didn't get his work finished, so Katelyn and I stayed and worked on the classroom while Cody finished up.
We were there until shortly after 7:00 p.m. organizing and tidying up. My OCD was raging with everything in boxes!
We simply began in an area each and tackled a little at a time.
I can't wait for our PB Paint Brush and Palate to be removed from our other classroom and brought over!
Then we will hang our pretties on the walls . . .
including white boards.

I have absolutely ZERO plans of moving the classroom again!
Whew . . . these past two weeks have been a bit of an overload!

New Room and Monitoring Software

This week we began our class in our new classroom. Although we still have organizing and decorating yet to do, the kids are all settled in. 

I am also thrilled that we have a new software program installed as well. Netop is a computer monitoring software for the classroom. I can see all SIX computer screens at one time.


The kids now know they are being watched over during their computer classes. In fact, one of my boys was actually shocked when I mentioned to Mrs. P that he had stopped his lesson after only watching part of the lesson. BUSTED!
