Teachers don't have to be back until August 20th with kids starting August 27th. Still, my dad is having surgery in a couple weeks (right before school starts) so I know I won't be able to be in there when I really need to be. So, in I went to get a jump start on things....... To make everything a tad more interesting, summer school is going on and guess where kindergarten summer school is happening? You guessed it - MY ROOM!
I totally forgot to take a picture of what it looked like before I began working. But since my friend already moved things around for summer school it doesn't really matter.
I have to tell ya I'm not really big on classroom themes (ok stop throwing the daggers you crazy kinder teachers)...... Perhaps I am the last kinder teacher without a classroom theme, but I finally decided on an ocean theme.
I acquired this gorgeous circle carpet from a teacher friend last year that looks like a big ocean.... I love this carpet and it inspired me!
(How stinkin' cute is this carpet of mine??? I really love it!)
So, the carpet sparked my interest in going with an ocean theme.....
Then, I visited the classroom of a teacher-friend and fell in love with her "blue-world".
So, back to my room today...........It's not nearly done - I literally have only spent 7 hours in it working (with 3 of my kids and a half-way cooperative husband), but here are some pics of MY blue world>>>>>>>.
More pics to follow ........:0)
So......what do you think?
What "theme" do you use in your classroom?
