Classroom Reveal 2014

2 weeks ago I walked in to my new classroom for the first time.. and man was it BARE!
There was very little on the walls and in the cabinets and 
I knew that I had a lot of work to do before the first day of school!

Here are some BEFORE shots:

 I took a lot of before photos but I won't bore you with too many.

Here are the AFTER photos!

The view from the door.

My SMARTboard and computer.

View from the front of the room.
I learned about the removable word wall and it was one of my favourite things in my classroom last year so I had to recreate it in my new classroom! I spent a small fortune on velcro.. but it's going to be worth it!

The word wall alphabet are a freebie from Little Minds at Work.
You can find them here.

My alphabet, daily schedule and book boxes.
Levelled books and manipulatives underneath.

I'm in love with my birthday board from Glue Sticks & Crayons!
You can find it here

Wonder wall for inquiries.
The kids' cubbies.

The number line is from Cara Carroll (love her stuff!)
You can find it here.

The sand/water table is on the left and the easle is tucked in between the sink and the cabinet.  We are not opening these yet and will slowly introduce these centres.

My environmental print wall is not finished.  But that's ok.
I have a morning EA and I'm hoping I can get her to help me cut them out
and tape them as the week goes on.

Colour posters are from Abby's "Color Me Kindergarten" pack.
You can find it here.

I will display the students "writing" on our Wow Work! Wall.
I just got two new students today so their names are still missing.
It's on my to-do list this weekend!

And this is my table for guided groups.

I have these amazing tubs to organize my manipulatives in.
I took a picture of the inside of each bin and made labels.
If you want them they are a freebie on TpT!
To see them click here.

Here is a close-up.

That's it!
I still have some finishing touches to do but for the most part I think it's ready!

This was the first time I had to do so much to get a classroom ready!
We start on Tuesday.
I hope the kids love it!
