I think I should maybe rename this rethinking my classroom philosophy.
As I was working in my room on Day 2, I am all alone thinking where are my students going to work on literacy activities? Where are they going to read? Last year everything including my groups were all bunch in the front of the room. I can I use this space wisely? You can see as you walk in my door, you have the bookcases right in front of you.

Then I had an idea, pack away some of the toys and only have them use them in a limited capacity. Then that will free up a lot of space.
So I moved my reading area to where I had my building center.
I will have my little ones work on word activities and puzzles on the carpet and they will be separate from the children who are looking at books.
What are your thoughts......I am nervous this is the first time ever for me to have my reading area separate from my meeting area.
