I thought it might be fun to share a peek into my classroom. I spend a lot of time in my classroom and love this space. Welcome to my little piece of Kindergarten…
When I went in my room to set it up, this is how I started. It looks so empty!
And now I am getting so excited for my little student’s to come fill this space! I like to keep extra crayons (2 packs) in the skinny long containers, the round containers on the table are for table garbage cans (scraps of paper, wrappers, it is so handy to have these…and then each day a classroom job is to empty them), and then I have little caddy’s that hold extra pencils, scissors and glue.
This is our morning meeting spot where we do calendar, read stories, we do a lot of learning in this area.
This is where we display a lot of art work. I hung ribbon and then black clips to easily hang art projects. We also are big advocate for play at our school so we have a kitchen/home center as well.
I have our anchor chart spot ready and love these little lights!
This will be our word wall. Each week we learn 2-3 new sight words and then I have the kids hang them under the letter on the wall.
Just another view of the room. The blank spot of purple paper is where our Special Person of the Week will get to hang their posters and pictures.
It doesn’t show up in this picture well, but I use these drawers to store the following week’s lessons and copies. Each drawer is a day of the week.
And then each Friday I fill these buckets with the next week’s plans. This way I am all planned for the following week in case I need to call in sick. I also keep a sub folder in each one with specific details for each day of the week. This system works really well and I leave on Friday feeling really prepared for the upcoming week.
My goal is to leave my desk each afternoon looking like this. My planner and papers.
I also love this little area of my classroom. Parents have gifted me these pictures throughout the year and I love my scentsy. The bee is our classroom “mascot” who we call SuperBee. SuperBee goes home each night with a student who had Super Bee-havior and the kids get to fill out a journal page. It is a lot of fun to see what happens each day!
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by and checking out a space that I love so much! I am really excited for it to fill with my students next week.
