Paw-sitively Adorable!

Gotta do the teacher thang and brag a little on my classroom…it’s borderline too colorful, full of cute puppy touches, and ready for 13 Kinder babies to help me make it home. Today’s our first day…praying it’s a good one! I’ve certainly put in the front work, and I know the Lord is on my side…but as always I’d appreciate any prayers for me & my kiddos!

Our school theme is “Aloha” and my theme is puppy-dogs, so I tried to combine the two for my classroom door.

Here’s our outside kinder hallway…

And little Hawaiian dogs to show off their fabulous work…

This is the inside of my door…I manage to thoroughly confuse people on my name from time to time with the “Huxley Happenings.” They think it’s my name. Sad really.

School map, birthday calendar, Brownie Points, helper, rules, classroom pledge, and conduct chart. Just in case you were wondering. 🙂

Our front wall…phonics letters, calendar “stuff”, graphing / Daily 5 area…and my amazing purple chair!

Another view of our calendar area…it’s kind of small, but we’re going to be doing a lot of our calendar virutally (hopefully!) so I think it will work out okay…

Notice the portrait of Huxley hanging in the background…lookin’ sharp my little man!

My little crowded teacher area…wish I had taken closer up pictures of the cute dog-themed scrapbook paper I used…

That’s our word wall and class library back there. Love my Kohl’s stuffed animals and composition notebooks!

To the left is my closet / book shelf, in the middle my small group / easel, then the listening and computer centers.

I got this idea from a blog…it’s a place to hang the anchor charts that I make with the class. If you look carefully, you’ll see the little puppy clips to hang the posters with…I’m so happy with this back wall!

Pinterest strikes again, with a little bit of Heather thrown in to help make my tissue paper flower chandelier. We do it big in Kindergarten!

Math manipulatives…

ABC strip, cubbies, and ABC books…

A new addition this year…chalkboard! We’re going old school…

Reading manipulatives, student work files, and our check-in spot.

Just showing this next pic to demonstrate how small my room is. I stand in one spot, take two pictures without having to move my camera much at all, and you can see my whole room.

(*Also, check out the magnetic oil drip pan hanging on the front shelf…I got it at Wal-Mart for like $10 and it’s so fun!)

So there it is. Now just picture me in there, along with 13 of the cutest little kids you’ve seen. (But don’t tell them you think they’re cute. They already know it…and will probably use it against you. *wink*)

Here’s hopin’ this year is dog-gone good!
