Setting up my classroom, making new posters and crafts, and getting new pens and markers makes me so excited for the year to start. I have spent many hours working in my classroom the past week. I think it is important to love my classroom since it is really my home away from home. I want my classroom to be fun and inviting. I hope that is what I have achieved for this school year.
I rearranged my reading center. I feel that it has opened up this space. I hope it gives more room to spread out and read!
I have decied to use some of the http://wholebrainteaching.com/ rules procedures this year. I found these rules on pinterest from http://www.3rdgradethoughts.com/! Check out her blog she has some great ideas.
My boyfriend told me he was making something for my classroom. I couldn't figure out what it was at all. I was so excited to find out that it was a book bag tree. He made it himself! I am so proud to display it in my classroom.
I bought these curtains at Ikea to help hide some things that might be a distraction to my kinders and it makes me look more organized!
I had these last year, but I added some more pom poms! I am a little addicted to them! Not allowing myself to make more right now though!
Each year we have a new school theme. Our school voted this year "Wild about Learning." In kindergarten we decided to put our own little twist on it and decided to use monsters. I love how cute and fun they are!
This is the board outside of my classroom. I found my inspiration from pinterest!
My assistant painted our back door with chalkboard paint at the beginning of the week. I am excited for my kinders to be able to write and draw on the door during center time.
The next three days will be staggered days. We have a third of our kinders. I plan to take their picture in front of the door and share the picture with their parents.
Here we go! Let's get the wild year started!!!Pin It
