New Project

Today I had new teacher I didn't get much done in my room.  What I did finish, I forgot to take pictures of.  I wasn't much though but I did manage to score some cubbies!  

On another note, when I ended up inheriting some old foam floor tiles.  No rug in my room.  So I decided to write up a project on Donors Choose.  I had one funded last year, but I have changed schools so this would impact my new class. 

Click on the words below to check out or donate to my project.


More pictures tomorrow...I hope.

Classroom Day 5

I went up to school today to work a little.  I am running short on time.  Next week I start new teacher inservice.  YIKES!

View from the door.
sink area - might add a board or something.  Not sure if it will be science or art area.

Word wall on a chalk board.  Need more tape.  To the right will be word work station.

Left is writing station, right is my small group area.

reading station and listening to the right.  Math tubs will go on tall shelf.  Not so happy with this area.

Student tables
view from the back of the room
Once the 3rd grade furniture was out and mine was in, I could arrange things.  The tables still need to be lowered and I have shelves to bring in, but looking better so far.

Classroom...Day 1 and 2

My closet full of stuff I need to unpack.
I did cover the boards.

I tried to clean the chalk board and started to add border.

Oh, did I mention 3rd grade furniture was still in the room.

More of my stuff.

More 3rd grade stuff...needs to go.

My fabulous boards, not sure what to put in the middle there.

View from the door.  Still lots to do.

When I came in on Monday I really didn't get much done but covering the boards and emptying boxes.  My room had the 3rd grade furniture and no kinder stuff anywhere in sight.  Luckily during the next few days my teammates helped me hunt down and move the kinder furniture into my room.
