So I have been MIA from my blog for the last couple of weeks. That is because I have been in my classroom almost everyday getting ready for kindergarten. In those two weeks I created my favorite classroom yet! Here is a quick little tour of my Eric Carle inspired kindergarten classroom!
|This is the view from the door. I really love how the blue pops! Eric Carle table signs and animals hang from the ceiling. I used blue as the main color with touches of green, orange and yellow as the accents.|
|Here’s our carpet / teaching area.|
|Here’s one of my tables with the Eric Carle table sign (on the supply tub), name plates and name tags hanging on the seats ready for Monday!|
|This is my small group teaching table. This is my first time with no teacher desk so we will see how it goes.|
|A glimpse into the classroom library. Eric Carle book covers hang on the wall as the art. Reading buddies are sitting on the window sill just waiting for a new little buddy to read with.|
|My number and color wall along with the kids lockers.|
|My focus wall ready for weekly objectives and new vocabulary. Also contains our class rules, a Give me 5 Reminder, and a Voice Level Chart. This little table will become either the writing center or creation station (art area).|
|This is my Eric Carle inspired behavior chart. More on how I am going to use it in a later post.|
|Here’s my door. I found this saying on Pinterest and loved it. Hoping that I don’t freak out some first time parents by posting their child’s graduation date on the door!|
So that’s about it. The room is ready, Meet the Teacher was great, and now its a countdown to the First Day of School. 13 hours and counting! Thanks for looking. I’d love to know about how you chose to decorate your room.
