I have had several people ask for pictures of my room so here you go! A quick tour of my class. If you have questions just let me know in the comments…
The front of the room: I have a projector and white board and typical calendar stuff although I don’ t spend much time on the calendar. Most of my morning message time is spent on Wonderopolis and the Number of the Day.
Year long calendar. This is something new I am trying this year. We will use sticky notes to add important dates. The tiny icons at the bottom of the white board is our visual schedule.
Number line, shapes, and color words. I don’t have many decorations on the room but these are important and used all year.
The orange table and one of the many living centers in my room. I color code each table just to make it easier on me.
I think it is important to have science tools and investigation materials out at all times. This table is where we keep those things. As we begin to explore outside we will bring in things to place in our investigation station.
Math Tubs. The top row of buckets are the math workshops for the week and the other buckets are manipulatives and free choice activities. I keep all my dice and other math materials we use often on the top of this shelf also.
Imagination Tubs: They “live” in the hallway and you can read more about our play time here.
Our class has 7 student computers and one teacher computer. You can see one of my windows in this picture.
Back of the room. Water bottles and snack are kept here plus a lot of my teacher supplies. This is also where we paint because there is a small tile area around the sink. Having a sink in the room is awesome!
My teacher table. Right now it is full of our literacy jobs to explain to the class this week. I keep all my supplies for guided reading in the metal shelf.

The second window and yet another living center.
The document camera
My teacher easel. The small magnetic white board is used for the student jobs which we haven’t started yet this year. The buckets are for the kids GO folder, journal and interactive notebook.
File cabinets. These are basically empty and only used for the kids to file their work. Yes, my Kindergarten kids file their own work. Finished work is placed in their file and it goes home every Friday. The key to making this happen is using colored files.
Another work table and a few extra imagination tubs that need a larger shelf for storage.
Work buckets. Unfinished work goes in these buckets. The digital picture frame has pictures of my family. After this month I will add pictures of the kids from my class each month.
Lockers and more storage for me The Be Brave name tags I use can be found here. I also have a small version of the “All About Me Project” on their locker. They are using them for journal time and I love how much they talk about them!
Outside our room we have a big wall for student work. Right now a large version of the “All About Me Project” is posted.
My teacher desk. The word wall is posted above my desk.
