    These are pictures of my Kindergarten classroom. I've made a lot of progress, but I still have more to do tomorrow. :)

    Everything that you see on the after pictures only took a total of 8 hours (1 work day) to complete. I walked into a classroom of complete disarray this morning and walked out this evening with an organized one.

    I love the fact of being a male kindergarten teacher! The kids that I have spoken with say that I'm going to be awesome! lol! I can't wait until August 22nd! :)

    Wow, I think it looks great, especially for only one day!

    Is it just me, or are those really big desks for kindergarteners? I guess I'm just used to seeing tables and small chairs in elementary...

    And yes, being male -- you will be their HERO, I'm sure! We don't see enough male teachers in the lower grades - so props to you!! :D

    Looks good! I love the huge rug.

    I thought the same thing. I'm picturing their chins coming to the top of the desk! :lol:

    I thought the same thing about the desks. I did ask. Everyone assures me that these are the exact same desks that were in here last year. So, I just said okay. I went to all the other K classroom and their desks are the exact same size. I'll have to have some of the kids sit in them at meet-the-teacher night so if they need to be lowered I can do it before school starts.

    You did a great job, and only being there for 8 hours! It looks fantastic! It takes me days to set mine up. Want to come to PA to help?

    It looks awesome!! You must have been really focused!

    I can't believe how the desks are stacked in the "before" pictures!!

    I was thinking the same thing... odd. I've never seen it done that way.

    Great job! Was wondering where you got your fire drill poster? It looks cute. What does it say?

    Thank you! I don't remember exactly what it says, but it's something along the lines of Remember to: Listen to your teacher, stay with your class, walk in a single file line, etc. What I do remember is that it is a Carson Dellosa poster. It was a little over $2. :)

    It looks great. I thought the same thing about the desks.
    Also, your white board and calendar time board a really high. You may want to lower those down. That way the students can actually do the calendar piece. Everyday Math does have them doing it. :)

    Oh one last thing, time to change your title on A to Z! and have you read the Blog Look at My Happy Rainbow?
