Classroom Pictures {2014}!!!

My favorite time of the year is here, sharing classroom pictures!! One of my all time favorite things about teacher blogs is getting a glimpse into other teachers' classrooms! I love that I can visit so many wonderful classrooms and never even have to change out of my PJs ;) I waited a couple of weeks before taking pictures of my classroom so that the walls weren't totally bare! I am SO excited to share them with you today!



Where the learning happens! I love our meeting place! 
This is where we have our students gather in the morning, and before we start a lesson.
The clothesline hangs across the room to hold various projects. I am obsessed with it! It makes our room like so cheerful! We made those adorable self portraits during the first week of school. You can find the idea {here} and the templates {here}.
This is one of my favorite bulletin boards! {Well actually, I love all the bulletin boards in my room so that's not really fair ;)} It will show off lots of great student work!

This board houses our monthly dictation. Each month, we take a picture with a cute prop, complete a sentence frame and illustrate our drawings. At the end of the year, we put all the pages together into a cute memory book. It's fun to look back and see all the growth that occurred during their kindergarten year! {those extra spaces are for new students! Can you believe we started out the year with only 26 kiddos!?}
 On the first day of school, we read Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten and wrote about how we got ready for kindergarten! Then we took a picture holding our K for kindergarten :)
You can grab the dictation pages for each month {here}.

We also learned all about shapes! You can grab these shape poems {here}. I printed them two to a page so they are a little smaller.

Here's another bulletin board for more student work. I love the color combo on this one!

Our Wonderful Word Wall! We will add lots of words to it all year long!
Here's a look at our small group table.
The board behind it has our 100's chart for calendar, our daily schedule, and our writing posters!

 And here's a look at our adorably beautiful calendar wall {if I do say so myself ;)}
The black and white banner is from the party aisle at Target! It's meant to be used as a chalkboard banner, but I glued bulletin board letters onto it instead. To read more about how we do calendar in our classroom {click here}.
The calendar set is from Creative Teaching Press.
 Grab the "I Lost a Tooth" sign and notes {here}.

As part of our school wide PBIS, we worked together as a class to illustrate the first rule of our school, "Stop, Think and Solve." Each table group worked together to come up with a way to "Stop, Think and Solve" in our classroom. Then they illustrated the picture. They always turn out so cute!
 And finally, I updated our sharp and dull pails with cute little signs and ribbon and I love how they turned out!
Hope you enjoyed the little tour!

  2. I want your room; it's so big!! We barely have room for 18 students and I have very little storage. I also want those tables! I do not like trapezoid tables.

  3. Super cute room, Hadar! I love it! It is like the Taj Mahal compared to my tiny room! We all had 26 kiddos last year. This year, I started with 22 and it seems so much more calm! :) Love your monthly dictation pages too!

  5. Your room is adorable! I love the banners you have that say "calendar" and "let's count". I am jealous of all your wall space - I am sharing a room this year and I have basically 0 wall space! Enjoy your week!

  6. I love your word wall, it is SO cute!! I used the chalkboard pennets as well and glued on letters like you did :) I tried to write on it with chalk but I just don't like my own handwriting! It looks so much cleaner using a font ;)

  19. Hello, you made your classroom so lovely. I wonder how old your students are (5,6') mine are 4 to 6 years old and I must say I love to read your blog every week. Greetings from Switzerland:

  20. I have a similar space of little cubbies under the bulletin board. How do you use those?

    1. We use those as our student cubbies. Put nametags in them and all the kids work and belongings go in there! Since we don't have desks, it really helps give them a space for their things.
