Here I am Again...

This evening, our elementary is performing an evening performance of our musical show.  While I have already seen it (afternoon matinee), I am staying again...much to my delight.  :)  There are positives and negatives. 

Negatives...I'm at school for almost thirteen hours.  It was dark when I came and dark when I go home.  I am surrounded by work to do. 

Positives...Pandora at loud levels (since no one is around).  I can accomplish tasks around the room I have wanted to do for a while...like organize more. 

Just what I wanted to do right before break.

Here are some before and after shots.  I cleaned, dumped, packed away, hid, rearranged, and threw away quite a few items.

Before...I had just moved a bookcase so we had the seating on the left.

Before (notice all of the stuff on the counter top)

Again, stuff on the counter

Before...we use this organizer for math stations and holding different writing utensils.

After...

After...

After...

After...there's less stuff!!!



It's a start...I still have work to do, but it's a start!  What do you think?

I am a bit envious.

It always feels so good to organize! It is one of the only tasks that I can do at work and listen to music. When I am reading student work or planning, I get distracted by music, but oh, I love those moments with music and organizing. I also always love seeing classroom pictures, so I am glad that you included some with your post.
