Ready or Not, Here They Come!

I'm ready, I promise!
At least I better 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 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!

I absolutely love your room! I saw so many things I must ask you about... Where did you get your matching table bins? What is magic play dough? And your parent name tags are a great idea... what else do you have on your table with the tags? What routine do you follow on the first day?
