I'm linking up again with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week to show you my classroom!
Unfortunately, I did not get any classroom pictures before my classroom was "lived in" for almost two weeks. OH WELL!
I was lucky enough to get to move into the BIG kindergarten classroom this year! WOO! So although I'm in a new room, I had a good idea how I wanted to set it up from teaching kindergarten last year!
Here are some pictures of the whole room:
I use the "less is more" ideal when preparing my classroom. I feel like some classrooms have SO many posters, resources, decorations, etc. that I can't imagine how the kiddos concentrate! Why put up a resource before a kiddo knows how to use it? I hope my classroom is a happy medium of welcoming and non-distracting!
My meeting area
My teacher area...no desk for me!
Art supplies/missing color drawers

Front view of the library! Love my hungry caterpillar!!
Side view of the student library
This is my writing center! It also shows an example of my students things. We don't have desks or storage of any kind, so their journals/books and such are kept here. They each have a book box. Then in the blue bin are their: calendar journals, math journals, poetry journals, writing folders, and math books.
Science center, puzzles, listening center, and my safe spot!
Character education board!
Student frames and hooks!
Math and word work centers
Alphabet, word wall, and reading resource wall!

Phew! That's my room :) Please feel free to comment if you have any questions about how I did anything!
Whew! That title is a mouthful, but at the beginning of school, I have to cram in as much as possible in my limited time!
I'll start with my first post for Teacher Week 2014!
Today, the question is Who? So I will be telling you a little bit more about myself :)
My name is Sarah and I teach kindergarten in St. Louis, MO! This is my second year teaching kindergarten, but my fourth year teaching overall! I have also taught first grade and second grade. I love my little kinder babies and awesome school!
I have a wonderful family! They support me in everything that I do and put up with all my teaching craziness. This is my mom and I in Nashville last spring break!
I also have some amazing friends. Best of all, most of them are teachers! So I have tons of people in my life to bounce ideas off of. And I can't forget my wonderful kinder team! I don't know what I would do without these ladies :)
In my free time, I foster dogs! My latest baby just got adopted this weekend. Look at that face!!
And last, 10 things about me!
And here is a little peek at my week! I'm linking up with Mrs. Wills Kindergarten! I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off, so I am going to work to try to have some pictures from the first week soon!
Last....there is going to be a special TPT boost sale on August 20th! You can get products in my store for 28% off! Who doesn't love bonus savings???
