This is the supply shelf where I keep all of the things that you might possibly need to complete small assignments in the music room. I have colored pencils, erasers, glue sticks, scissors, dry erase boards/markers/erasers, wipes, vis-à-vis pens and crayons. I also have full and half sheet notebook paper. On the left side I have a few classroom mailboxes to keep work for the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes. I will probably keep center work on the 2 shelves below.
I decided over the summer that I wanted to do something a little different with my workspace. I spend a lot of time here planning out lessons and getting myself organized for the day, so I wanted it to be comfortable, super organized, and a little homey (is that even a word?). I purchased the chair from Wal-Mart. It's purple so it gives the room a little of my personality. I also purchased the small bookshelf from Lowe's Home Improvement to put my binders in. I tried just standing them up against my computer last year and they all kept falling over. This seems to be working out much better so far. The white drawers underneath my desk have the extra worksheets and materials for a substitute in case something comes up and I can't be at work. Emergency sub plans are in one of the binders.
A closer view of the desk shows the "teacher toolbox" that I made (pinterest inspired). You can't really see the labels all that well, but they are things like paperclips, 3M strips, post it notes, etc. And of course it would not be at all complete without the bottle of Mountain Dew :)
I also (with the help of my father and my sister) made these crate seats - also inspired by pinterest. I might use these for extra seating in case we decide that we can't fit 24 5th graders on the risers. I originally planned to use them when I give out independent/group work.
