Hi Blogging Friends! If you are linking to Blog Hoppin' this week, pictures of your room are suppose to be tomorrow, but I wanted to get these out now because we start school Thursday and I don't know if I would have time to post later.. As you probably already know I am not a very good photographer. maybe a new camera? or a new photographer? :)
Above you will see my my math stations! Loved the way they turned out! Ready for Can do Kinders!
Didn't these turn out great? They are next to my pencil sharpener. I found the idea on pinterest .... Don't you love all the great ideas there?
When I saw this on pinterest I knew it would be perfect to help my kinders with directions. Some of my children are ELL students and visuals are a plus for them and me.
This is my behavior chart ready to go.... soon it will hold 25 clothespins!
I love my calendar. Even though I have a smart board and will be doing calendar/morning meeting on it this year, I knew I would need this as an anchor chart for the children to refer to throughout the day! Part of our evaluation on 21st century skills is how we intergrate global learning throughout our day. I plan on using the small map and my smart board to find temperatures, seasons, etc...around the world and compare to our city. Because the the map is laminated, I will be able to write what we discover right on it.
Here is a closer view! Do you see Pete?
I made 2 stools for my listening/reading center! You can't tell it in the picture the material is red and white polka dots. The apple came from a lunch box I found on sale at JoAnne's. I cut it apart and glued it on the top of the stool. I have 2 of the stools and I love them. I know the children will too.
Here is a larger view!
And.... this is my Write the Room tub! Do you see the new clipboards?
These are the pictures I took today of my little classroom. It doesn't show everything, but I hope you enjoyed looking at them. Have a great week.... and I'll be back over the next couple of days... Cross your fingers I have a great first day like so many of you and hurricane Irene stays off the coast!
