Where It All Goes Down

So, finally, my classroom is set up & ready for the kids to arrive!

Attendance Pocket Chart
Who is here today?
Nobody!
Our first day of Kindergarten is next week Wednesday.



Cubby Area
This is where my students will enter the classroom & store their belongings.

The shelf beside the doorway holds Lost & Found items and my students' indoor shoes.

Looking In
Facing the classroom from the cubby area:
On the left is the Writing Centre & Listening Centre

This desktop organizer holds pencils, erasers, clipboards, word folders, and index cards with the students' names written on them for copying.

Students can choose what type of paper they want to write on: plain, lined, or with thematic pictures/borders.



The tables are on the right:
The Word Wall is located next to the tables, for easy reference.


Buckets of supplies are also next to the tables.

There are buckets for pencils, erasers, scissors, glue sticks, and markers.


 
Water Play
A large sink with lots of faucets makes for great water play!


Carpet Area
Ikea storage system used as a divider:

Bulletin board used for Morning Routine activities, including class jobs, calendar activities, days at school count, and the weather.

The class jobs involve distributing various supplies to each table, including paper, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue sticks, & scissors. There is also the important job of being 'line leader' for the day.


Whooo's in Kindergarten? Just me, for now...
