2015 PreK Classroom Tour

The other day it came to my attention that it has been THREE YEARS since I posted pictures of my classroom. Three years, three grade levels, and a brand new building later, I'm excited to share my PreK classroom with you! This is my second year in this classroom, so it was really nice to be able to focus on re-vamping specific details of my classroom this year as opposed to completely decorating the room from scratch. I am fortunate to be able to teach in a building that is only 2 years old. It's so pretty on it's own that all I had to do was add some fun colors. :)

The focal point of my classroom is definitely my neon foam floor mat. This is my fourth year with this mat and I'm still as in love with it as I was the first day that I got it. The bright colors tie everything together. I use the four basic colors in the mat as my inspiration for every other decoration in the classroom.

I use the front of my desk as a small magnetic version of our classroom letter wall. 

This wall houses our Computer Center, our Pretend & Learn Center, our ABC Center, our full-size letter wall, the student work display board, and our numeracy board.

The full-size letter wall is one of my favorite details of my classroom!

Each student in the class is assigned a job, which changes weekly.

The back of the classroom is home to the storage closet, the student restroom, and our mini kitchen area. Student tables are organized by color.

If there's one thing I would change about the design of this room, it's the cubby space. Storing everyone's backpacks, rest mats, and jackets is very challenging. This year I opted to order fabric drawers for each student, which have helped with organizing the students' personal belongings.

This corner houses our RTI materials, "I Can" Statements, and the Daily Focus Board. 

 Can't forget about the hallway!

This is where I will display our Writer's Workshop pages each month.

Our school is a No Excuses University Campus, so each classroom adopts a college. I'm a Red Raider at heart, but I chose LSU as my adopted university this year!

That's my classroom in all of its bright and sunshiney glory. I hope you enjoyed the tour! Until next time... :)
