My Classroom

My classroom is ready for students! I won't say that it's finished, because it's honestly not ever finished. I will always be adding work of the kids and anchor charts of what we are working on. For that reason, it looks kind of empty right now. But that won't last long.

I get to spend my first full day with my kindergarteners tomorrow. I can't wait! I've got everything planned, even my outfit. Kindergarten will be very different from second grade, but I think I'm going to love it! Siunce I've worked so hard this week, I wanted to share some pictures of my new classroom. Keep in mind, I still have all new furniture coming.
This picture is from the door to the hallway. I LOVE having windows in my classroom. I plan to turn on lamps and leave the big lights off during most of the day.
Here's another look at my classroom. This view is from the door that leads outside. In the back right corner is my bathroom and sink! I will be getting a big rug to put in the floor where the letter blogs and small rug are. We just have to make do until it arrives.

This is the classroom reading center. Their are Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling. That lamp is one of my favorite things. So colorful!

This is one of the 4 tables the students sit at. Each morning the students are going to start off the day working on writing their names. I will also be getting enw tables and chairs that all match. I just don't know when they will arrive either.
This is where I will do most of my teaching. I love using an esel instead of a big chalkboard or whiteboard. Rumor has it though, that will be getting smartboards and projectors at some point.

This is our word wall. We will probably only add 1-2 words a week.

Calendar Math

Discipline plan. The students will move their clips when they get in trouble. Then I mark in their folders what color they were on at the end of the day.
