Classroom Reveal and the first few days of kindergarten!

So, I moved rooms again this year, it was only fitting to redo all of my decor again! I decided to go with a nautical theme but I didn't go quite as crazy over the decor this year as I did last year. I love how the room turned out and the kids are really enjoying the space as well. I have a few new items that I am super excited about. I love the magnetic border to divide areas for my objectives and number wall and I also love, love, love my old fashioned pencil sharpener!  I was so excited when a friend dropped it off as a gift yesterday, (I didn't even know they made them anymore!) These cute little snap boxes fit a 24 pack of crayons perfectly and they are 2 for $1 at the dollar tree. I found these bingo daubers on amazon.com and they work wonderfully, (they were a steal, the next time I see them on sale I am going to buy a ton more) and what teacher could live without these dry erase pockets,  I have used then 3 times already and it is only the 6th day of school! We were able to start daily 5, daily 3 and have started our short "I" word work. The class as a whole is getting the hang of the classroom pretty well. Overall I have been pleased with the start of this year. I hope you enjoy the pictures and maybe find some inspiration!

(You can find the decor and short vowel resources in my tpt store)

Nautical ocean navy blue and green classroom decor

I finally decided on my theme for next year! I am going to use nautical and ocean themed decor to decorate my new classroom. Yes, I am moving again this year so new room, new theme! I do not have access to my room over the summer so I took these pictures over my kitchen table which is approximately the same size as my large board. The first picture shows how I plan to use one of my boards as my calendar/ math focus wall.  I will be placing magnets onto the letter pieces and have them next to the calendar on my whiteboard. I have not decided where I will use and place all of the other pieces except the word wall which will be on a board on the adjacent wall and my number line above the calendar/ white board. There are quite a few pictures of the pieces included in the file and there are also editable pieces so you can customize your classroom.  If you would like to see the Christian file or the secular file scroll through the pictures and click on the link at the bottom. I will post a classroom reveal as soon as I can get into my new room and place everything where I want it. I also bought navy/ green bins from thirty one which I am embroidering and using throughout my classroom this year!

Here are a few of the items I bought from thirty-one for my classroom. I am going to hang the large organizer behind my desk with three of the "homework" pouches on each side. I will also link 3 snap bins along my boards chalk ledge to hode supplies. I think my favorite though are the utility totes at the bottom which I will be using to store community supplies at each table. I can't wait to get into my room!
