Another teacher was ridding her room of these cubbies, and I claimed one as my "desk." I was able to pull our guided reading table back to give myself some space, and I consolidated two file drawers into one empty one I had at the front of my room.
Perhaps my favorite piece of this was putting together what Pinterest has dubbed the "22-drawer teacher organizer." As I taught in another teacher's classroom this summer, I saw her's and thought "she has way too much time." However, as I got to thinking about getting rid of my desk, I knew all that stuff had to have a home, and it seemed like a fit. I splurged the $1.50 for editable labels on Teachers Pay Teachers, too ;) I'm so happy to have more space in my room with two more kiddos this year; I know that doesn't seem major, but it's two more people, and all their stuff! I'll let you know what I think as the year gets rolling.
