Welcome to my room!


How scary...my first blog post! I like many others out there are addicted to classroom blogs! I am amazed with all of the creativity and felt I could share a few of my ideas from my own classroom...so here I go. I will be the first to admit  that I'm not always the most techno savvy! I guess I'll learn as I go so please be patient.  First let me fill you in on my personal teaching experience. I have been teaching for 19 years and 18 of those have been in Kindergarten.  I have seen so many changes in curriculum and instruction during this time. It's mind boggling! However, I am so fortunate to work with eight other fantastic Kindergarten teachers. Yep, that's right, there are nine of us at our building!  I learn so much from them each day and I hope I can share some of their awesome ideas (along with a few of my own of course) with you on this blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

Here's a few snapshots of my room and a few center activities for the upcoming week. It's supposed to snow here so some of these may have to be postponed while we enjoy a snow day! Have a great weekend!


Our reading center...AKA "The Stage" and our book box area. The white tubs store leveled readers that the kids can "shop" for to put in their book boxes.


After making this chart with the kiddos I put it in the ABC center and they first sort letter magnets into the different catagories. After this they write each of the lowercase letters onto the recording sheet. Also in this center I have our latest stamping activity. I love to use The Short Books to help the kids learn their popcorn words!


I've collected so many alphabet stamps with different fonts over the years. This little organizer from the hardware department has been a lifesaver in keeping them organized!

  2. Thank you for following! I love your blog! A friend and mentor Kindergarten teacher that I worked with for years was known in our school as "The Queen of Kindergarten." When she retired she held a "crowning" ceremony for me (in front of the entire staff!) and dubbed me the new "Queen." Your blog of course caught my attention right away! I love it and hope you continue to post. So inspiring!

  4. Thanks for following! The original queen and I did have some fun with the queen concept but I love just being part of a big group of kindergarten teachers (nine of us!) and learning so much from them each day. =) I'll be stopping by your blog too!
