I have been working so hard getting my classroom ready for my new Kinders! I know you all have been hard at it too. I've changed a few things, but kept it mostly the same as last year. Don't fix what's not broken...right?
My super star board and center chart...plus my new "steps for completing an assignment" chart that I saw on Pinterest.
front view of classroom
close-up of my clock numbers that came from an idea off of pinterest...my sister made these for me...
also, the little numbers will be for "read my code" activities I will be incorporating this year. Great idea from Kim Jordano from KinderbyKim
center baskets...I made new labels with a sign above where each will be placed after use...because I have 3 sets of baskets, my students were putting the wrong baskets in the wrong place last year so I labeled them to make it easier for them
the writing center...plus a cute little "writing banner"
I saw this idea a while back from Pre-K Pages...I love how the stamps fit right into the ice cube trays.
I mod-podged my filing cabinet...it's cute now!
this is my small group area...notice the vinyl shapes on the table...my students will sit at the same place every day instead of arguing over where to sit...PLUS this will help them learn colors and shapes faster I hope...the little black stools came from Fred's...so cute...I plan to "cutesy" them up a bit with some vinyl
My sweet hubby and brother made this brand new shelf for me....I needed something to house my reading materials so "here she is".
these clip charts are all over the web, but I first saw this idea from Mrs. Bainbridge's class...actually my sister showed it to me...I chose not to do the top half of the chart, but use the bottom half as my discipline plan...I build rainbows for positive reinforcement
My NEW reading loft...well new to me...I love that I have double as much room...reading on top and listening underneath
I made cute little banners for center headers....they turned out lovely!
the word wall and birthday bears
my classroom door...
I found these baskets at Dollar Tree....these will hold our red take home folders
ribbon not included... :)
finally...what our room looks like when you walk in the door...
What cha' think?
