The one downside to this class has been... the classroom.
When I walked in to my new classroom I was shocked at the condition of the room. The tables were pushed up against one side of the room, there were no decoration on the walls, the toys/games were strewn all over the classroom and the books were shoved in any nook or cranny in which they would fit. It was a mess. I jumped in with both feet and made a list of everything I could see that needed to be done. As I went along I discovered more things that needed to be done and for a while there I was adding things faster than I could get things done. After two solid weeks of work my classroom is clean, organized and ready to go. I wish I had thought to take before pictures but sadly I did not, so you will have to deal with just the after pictures.
