Camp Learn-A-Lot Pictures

Here are some pictures of my 2011-2012 kindergarten classroom.  I really enjoy camping, and decided to use the theme in my classroom.  Plus...I LOVE D.J. Inkers clip art! has great theme ideas for your classroom.  Check it out - after you check out my pictures!  HE HE

Camp Love-To-Learn !

Every morning the students will whisper the secret password into my ear before they enter the classroom. 
I start out with shapes and then the sight words we are learning. 
Visual Bus Display for mine and the guest teacher's eye!

Name ticket!  Susie Haas from Scribbles-N-Dots came up with a great idea. 
Each morning the students will write his/her name on a slip of paper.  After a few months, the students will write their first and last name and write numbers (1-10 / 1-20) on the back.  

"Moose Munch" What are you eating for lunch?

Don't Be A Little Stinker - Follow the Rules!

Academic Free Choice (free play) area choice board.  After the students are done with thematic centers he/she can choose an area to go and work/play. 

Rest Time Reading Boxes.  During quiet time the students can bring his/her rest time boxes to their spot and read. 
Gotta love Toobalos!

In their rest box you will find a toobaloo, number counting sheets, wordless books, guided reading books, nursery rhymes sheets, and color songs sheets.

"Beary" Sweet Birthdays

Birthday Balloon from me! 

I tape the construction paper balloon onto a silly swirly straw.


Classroom rules. 
I think it is very cute, but I am changing the bears to more visual pictures for the students to remember each rule. 

We give a "HOOT" about writing !
The posters "Writing For the Reader" and "When I'm done I can.." are from Kim Adsits website.
Check out her new blog


Don't Bug Me...  Math is Fun! 
During the year, I will add concepts we are learning to the board.

  12. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog in the
    near future but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
