Why teach Pre-K?

Because, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

For my children and my husband!

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)


  1. Hi Christine,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!


  2. Your room looks great! I love the old fashioned pencil sharpener, too, but that ceiling fan is probably my favorite thing! LOL! I would love a fan in my room!

  3. Thanks for writing this impressive article.

  4. When you are a teacher or teaching your kids at home getting new ideas every time is extremely difficult to make the kids interested in learning. So, taking help from kidsfront.com like sources will be a relief. Have a look at their webpage http://www.kidsfront.com/english/prefix_1.html.

  5. This for this great opportunities for child learning.
