Classroom Pictures 2013-2014

Hi everyone!
I'm adding a link to Miss Nelson's site for her Saturday Snapshot link party!


I spent 11 hours in my classroom yesterday getting everything put away and ready. There are still a few things out and about... I STILL don't feel completely done, but here is what I have so far!

Front entryway

Front of the classroom - the brown trapezoid will probably be moved!

My desk area

Classroom library

Kids' cubbies

My desk area with CRAFT board and name banner!

Cabinets turned into a Word Wall

My media cart and "FAMOUS" chevron rug!
I will definitely add more pictures later! As you can see, I have lots of inspiration from the wonderful blogs out there and Pinterest! The one side of my room is very dark because we have an open wall between our two kindergarten rooms. It's much brighter when all the lights are on :)

We've got Kindergarten Jump Start beginning August 5 so it's crunch time!

  2. L-O-V-E your classroom pictures. I am starting to get jealous of everyone getting in their rooms! I have been looking all over for that rug. Where did you find it?!

    1. The small chevron print rug is from Big Lots!! I got it last year but haven't seen it recently... you should definitely check yours though! My big area rug is from Kaplan Learning, I got it through DonorsChoose.org!

    1. Nice! That chevron rug is hard to find now! I love my teal IKEA stool, I didn't see any in that color this season. I'm hoping mine doesn't break, ha!

  8. Your room is looking great! I use the CRAFT strategy too! I would be interested in seeing how that works with younger students.

    1. Thanks! I'm excited to try it out! I know a lot of primary teachers that use the CAFE and my school is really big on discourse and responding to text, so I think the CRAFT board will be a great tool!

  9. Your room looks fabulous! Wow! If mine looks half that cute by the time school starts, I'll be thrilled! Can I say I am kind of jealous of all your trapezoid tables? I've had two forever, and I used them as an additional student table last year (otherwise, I have 4 six foot rectangular tables). I LOVED them as a student table. AND the added plus was, my students all knew what a hexagon was better than any others in the building! LOL. Thanks for the inspiration to get moving on my classroom!

    1. Thank you! I'm lucky to have these trap's! They've become rare in my district as well. Good luck in your own room, I'd love to see pictures!
