    Wow! A brand new room...that's a teacher's dream. You need to read some of the bulletin board posts on here. There are a lot of good sites listed for room ideas. You can also type Kindergarten ideas in your search engine and find a lot of good sites too!

    Kids love to see their work on display. So let the kids complete the bulletin boards that you start...An easy back ground cover is Wallpaper or material. I find a wallpaper that can stay all year and just change the border for a new change.

    I knew a Kindergarten teacher that had an old fashion bathtub in her room and it was filled with pillows. The kids loved sitting in the tub while "reading" books.

    Enjoy your new room...

    I did the kingdom o f kindergarten last year. Everything was revloved around castles, knights, princes & princesses. I was the queen of course. The kids loved it. We wrote our own fairy tales and made our own family crests (shields).

    Hi. You will love 3rd grade! They are the most fun! Still young enough to love games and worship the teacher. You need to be both firm and loving, practical and motherly. I had a busy bee system where thy got tickets each day for positive behaviors and redeemed them at the end of the day for candy and small prizes. I taught to the upper third and helped the low-achievers along. I changed the seating arrangement weekly - small groups of desks clustered. They loved spelling bingo with their weekly spelling words (they make a 4x4 grid on paper and place a word in each box, you call the words until someone has bingo). Good luck!

    What kind of positive behavior was rewarded?

    It depended on the child. Some kids got rewarded for staying on-task, some for superior effort, some for recognizing their own misbehavior, some for helping another student, etc.
