Our Kindergarten Classroom

My original option was to do our work in the kitchen, but because my step-son decided to continue high school in Connecticut we now have a School room! I always secretly longed to have a room devoted to school.  I just think for our family it will make things easier.  Everything will have a place and I will be able to shut the door and school will be over.

So, here are some pics of what it looks like as of now. I’m sure things will get changed a bit as we get used to being in there and find out what we do and don’t need.

This is our work area. Little Girl sits on a therapy ball to do her work, so she still gets the movement she needs while getting her work done.

Little Girl’s workboxes.  We use 9 boxes and it has been working well for Kindergarten, so far.  We also do the calendar first thing every morning with the day of the week, the number day and the weather.  Below the Calendar is the basket of library books and early readers that she will be reading aloud to me.

This area is for storage of curriculum and manipulatives, as well as the printer and soon the laminator!  To the right of this unit is a bureau that holds more supplies and things not needed daily.

This is my computer and desk, I just use this for research and printing, I have another computer in the living room for non-school things (like writing this blog).

That is pretty much our school room right now.  There are a few things that I have seen in others rooms that I would love someday, but for now I am happy here.
