It's Starting To Come Together: Classroom Set Up

Things Are Shaping Up:

Here are some photos of the things I have set up in my classroom so far:
My Small Group Table.
I meet with homogeneous groups here.
If you are from the RED table, you sit at the red mat,
if you're from the YELLOW table, you sit at the yellow mat, etc.

Setting Up Centers:

Discover Center, complete with Sands Alive.
It never dries out!  You can buy it at Jo-Anns.  
Library Center.
Painting Center covered with a plastic table cloth.
Paint supplies labeled with paint sample cards.
Writing Center

Keyboard Center where you can explore and create your own music.
Headphones are a MUST!  :)

Home and Dress-up Center.
Label everything.

Our 1st Science Center:  Magnets.
I placed the magnetic "spheres" in a Mochi tray.
(Mochi ice cream from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, yum!)
I punched a hole in the tray rim, added a string and a magnifying glass.

Puppet Center.

  1. Love! A real Kindergarten room.

  2. I love it! I thought I was the only one with a kitchen, puppet center, etc. Glad I'm not alone!

    1. So glad to hear that you have these things in your classroom. They are so important! Thank you for sharing. :)

  3. What a lovely room! And thank you so much for the shout out and the link! Have a great year!

  4. I love your color coded tables and then incorporate them into your small group. I'd love to steal this idea..ok with you?
