classroom set-up, day 2

Just as a reminder, here's what I walked into this morning...
and here's what I left this evening (I feel much better about my progress today)...

I combined the clip chart with a money system (counting back change is HUGE in 2nd)

 large brown = calendar, peachy-orange = daily 5
 the free welcome banner I posted for y'all, I used giant yellow rick rack and just stapled the laminated triangles to it!
 my owl border and clip chart.  the picture above the money was made by the whole 5th grade class last year, it's their finger and thumbprints.  I {heart} it!
 This is the mess that is my library area... Becky is bringing me another white 9cube tomorrow and I'm going to take my super old orange bookshelf in, too.  Once it's all put together I'll post more pictures, I'm way proud of my library!
 I'm very happy with this corner of the room!
 This is the view of the room from that corner... in this picture you can see a table that will be gone next week, my table groups, a green tub full of magazines for collage and projects, a box of blue coffee tubs that have markers in them, and a whole slew of things to be put in their right place... if only I knew where their right place was... sigh.
