Ready for School Year 2016-2017

Another school year has begun and I have spent nearly a week getting my room ready.  Cleaning (75+ Clorox wipes and 5 Swiffer dusters later), unpacking, and covering bulletin boards.  Printing, laminating, and taping. Leveling, stapling, and organizing.  All to create a welcome and inviting room for my little Kindergarteners!

Here is the result.

Area just above my desk.  I posted the pics of POTUS and VPOTUS near the flag.

Writing area.  Each table has a box with writing folders and pens for writer's workshop.  I created the drawing years ago when teaching a unit on Imagination in 2nd grade.

This fun READ display hangs above my library.  I painted cardboard letters from Joann's and cut and stapled Dr. Seuss bags from Target Dollar Spot on top of canvases.

Here is the library area.  Stuffed animals (reading buddies) are in the large bin.  I purchased some scoop rockers and made the sit-upon cushions. Looking to add a small rug to this area.

Calendar area includes school day count ten frames, months of the year, and calendar.  On the wall below are student buckets for bucket filling.  I will be taking a picture of each student and taping them on the front of the buckets.

Small group table with crate seats and fancy magnetic white boards.

Here's to a FANTASTIC year!
