A few "in progress" pics...

BEFORE:
(Please note that the stacks of books are actually two deep.)

AFTER:
Everything in the bottom half of this cabinet is to be thrown away. Yes, there was that much useless material in here!! (I'm pretty sure the scanner & printer in top shelf are trash-able too!)


BEFORE:


AFTER:

(above)I swapped out the Farm Animal border for my books... they actually run the length of the chalkboard. And of course, my favorite poster in my classroom.... the "Warning" sign!
(below) This board is directly to the right of my chalkboards (which I still plan to replace with dry-erase boards eventually). I will post sports team schedules, announcements, etc. on this one.

BEFORE:

AFTER:

This board has different words that are "themes" of American literature and American history as a whole... here's a close-up of a few. Others include: bravery, honor, freedom, struggle, non-conformists, education...

This is the panel directly to the left of the big "American Dream" bulletin board.
