  3. Hope, my room actually looks like this all year. I am a bit OCD and order & cleanliness is a big part of it!! :)

  4. I love your room! It is so unique and totally you (not that I know you:) I like your homey bookshelf. What's on the bottom of your chairs? I'm always looking for a solution to the chair scuffs and screeching. Last year I bought a ton of little chair sticky felt things which was a lot of $. I'm so curious how you did that?

  5. What a nice room!! I love the set up of your tables and it looks like a great solution for my room. I've been struggling with my table set up since I received my Promethean board. I'm with you on being neat and orderly...can't function if things are out of place too much. Have a great year!

  8. You have a beautiful and well-organized classroom! As another OCD personality type, I can relate to the constant need for order! I think, in the long run, it helps the students as well, though. I also love the cozy bookshelf corner.

  13. Kim, I use felt on the bottom of my chairs. It is doubled over and rubber banded on. Works like a dream.

  14. I tried the rubber bands and felt. they keep falling off... is there a trick?

  15. @ Anonymous ... I double the felt over...and use the very thick rubber bands. I usually triple the rubberbands when wrapping them around the leg.

  16. What a great idea with the felt! I am moving building and my new room has no carpet. I was very disappointed because I know how noisy the chairs can be on the tile. I am so glad that I found your post. Thanks for the great idea.

  17. Wow! I have the same set up. I did it like this out of necessity. Last year when I was 6 months pregnant I had to go to the OB because of some issues. They basically said I was over doing it, I'm no spring chicken, it was my 3rd child and I'd been teaching for 14 years, at the time. But, my table design is very similar. I used a horseshoe table in the center and surrounded it with the larger C shape with connected tables. It allowed me to use a rolling chair and scoot to the kids needing assistance. I loved it so much I kept it that way this year as well, minus the rolling chair, lol!
