My classroom is starting to look like a classroom rather than a giant mess! I work with the SWEETEST kindergarten teacher team. They have been helping me organize and clean all week. I don‘t know what I would have done without them.
This morning I went to a garage sale and hit the jackpot. I just happened to go to a random sale and it was a teacher having it! She had SO much stuff. Tubs, and tubs of bulletin board things, border, toys, puppets, books, EVERYTHING. I think I will go back tomorrow and see what she has left. My classroom is a circus/ carnival theme and look what I found:
He is really precious. Some clowns frighten me, but I love him. I put him up in my classroom today : ) I only took pictures on my phone so they are a little blurry. I don’t think I’m keeping that filing cabinet, so I may have to rearrange him. All of the number words are listed on his suit and then the balloons have that number of dots.
I also found these stuffed masks. I think I will just use them for a fun center or to act out a story. They were NEW with TAGS! 50 cents apiece. I couldn't resist.
And this is going to really make you laugh. One of the masks was a cow mask. By fate, if you dress up as a cow today and go to Chik-fil-a you get a free meal. So I put on my cow mask and went to Chik-fil-a hahaha.
I may have embarrassed my family.
Here a few pictures of my classroom so far. I'm sorry they are all from my phone and a little blurry. But maybe you can see that I have made some progress : )
This is my work work area and my popcorn word wall. I still need to put up my header!
This board will be used for my Daily 5 anchor charts. The outside border has cute (NOT creepy) little clown faces. I found it at the garage sale today too! I am going to use the table and three drawer organizer for writing. I also think I will put up a "What Can I Write?" poster on the side of my filing cabinet. Please notice the spice racks on the left. IKEA! I asked the lady, "Do you have any wooden spice racks?" and she said, "The ones from Pinterest"? I thought it was funny. I think they are really cute for displaying books!
This is my calender area. I LOVE IT! It's all coming together and looking so bright and cheerful. I need to add a few more things to my board. My schedule will go on the long pocket chart on the right.
I can't wait to have my classroom finished and share it with you!
