Ready or Not...

It is official. School starts tomorrow. Bright and Early! Ready or Not! 

I am ready, well my room is at least. I really don't have a theme that carries throughout all my decorations. I like bright colors. I have started putting border around large displays on the walls. It adds a finishing touch to the display. It also helps the display stand out on the cream colored walls.


This is the view from my desk. Complete with my Tervis tumbler. I drink iced tea all day. I have several tumblers that follow me everywhere I go. 

This is the view from the door. We use tables for Kindergarten. I am using shower caddies to hold the scissors, glue, and pencils for the table. Each student will have their own box for crayons. 

I have set my tables and chairs so that everyone will be able to see the piloting a 2:1 laptop program this year, so the kids will need to see the board. Lots more on that throughout the year. 


Here is the reading corner. I found the little andirondack chairs at Big Lots a few years ago. The colors are great. I don't have to worry about the fire code issues of having pillow and bean bags. I  added the felt board last year. I have several felt sets that match stories we will read. I include generic sets for story telling.


The reading corner is in front of my built in desk. I wasn't happy with the view of cords, and computers, etc... I have seen lots of cute "READ" signs on Pinterest all summer I adapted the idea and make them printable instead. I purchased 8 X 10 acrylic frames for the letters, found cute clip art and papers, and voilĂ . 

Yes, the "D" doesn't match. My original plan was different. I bought the wrong frame. I had to turn a vertical frame on its side to make it work this week. I will be  making a trip to AC Moore in the near future to get the correct frame.
