At least I better be...school starts tomorrow!
After meeting many of my adorable new students at a really wonderful "Meet the Teacher" on Friday, it was time to get ready for the first day. Setting up my room was tougher than usual this year, since I moved from a much larger classroom where I taught Transitional Kindergarten last year. It was an adjustment, but I was able to fit all the spaces in that I wanted in a functional way. Here are some snapshots of my room:
The front door, student computers, and literacy center rotation charts
The Writing and Art Center. ALSO where parents will be picking up nametags on the first day of school :).
Our rug and calendar area
Teeny, tiny classroom library. Because the space is so small, I will be rotating the books frequently.
Student work area
My space...so excited to be reunited with a document camera! I don't know how I lived without one last year.
The Home Center and Birthday Board
This is outside our front door. The red duck tape is to help train the kiddos to stand in a line.
And of course, the magic play dough is ready to go...with some help from the husband!
