Classroom Party!

Hi! I thought it'd be fun to link to this party at Kindergarten...Kindergarten! I've had so much fun looking at all of the creative classrooms out there. Teachers are great at sharing! Here a few photos of my room:

This is our "build a word center." I have magnetic letters in the container on the shelf, sorted by letter.

This shelf holds our math manipulatives, math books, and file folder games/activities related to math.

A picture of our birthday graph....

Here are some of my classroom pointers for the children to use for Read the Room. Right now I have the children's names in the pocket chart.

This is our reading area...I also have some pillows and reading buddies for the children to use.
This is a suitcase in our dramatic play holds dress up clothes. I have a very small classroom. Our elementary students moved into the high school building, so I just have an average size sink or bathroom, although they are close by. My dramatic play area is kind of small, so the suitcase helps me keep everything in a small area.

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of my classroom. Feel free to browse around my blog for other classroom ideas! Have a great day!

DJ Inkers and a few more pics...

Hello! I entered a contest at DJ Inkers a few weeks ago. I LOVE their clip art!! I didn't win the contest, but thought I'd share a pic of my entry:

I made cards for the pocket chart that show our "special" classes for the day, like Music and P.E. That way the children can see what we have when they come in the morning. I laminated the sentence strips so I can use a dry erase marker to fill in the time of the classes. You will find all kind of fun ideas if you visit the DJ Inkers website!
