Welp, I redid my entire room this year and transformed it into a Jungle:) It’s finished!!! And just in time too! I had orientation on Thursday night and our 1st FULL day of school was yesterday (a friday)
I saw this bulletin board idea here and I just LOVED it!!!! Have you seen Frog Steet Press’s Zebra and leopard print decor!?! It’s ADOR.ABLE!
As you can see, I do NOT have a small class this year. So far, I have 25 Kinders.
I tried to take a close-up picture of the bling letters….YES! I said Bling letters! These cute curly letters come with bling to stick on!!!! Also by Frog Street!!
Here is a pic of my classroom from the door. If you follow my blog, you know that I don’t have a very big classroom and there is NOT ONE closet in the entire school:( So, my classroom doesn’t look as nice and tidy as many of yours do…
Here are some pictures of my whiteboards…As you can see, I don’t write on them:) I use my easel to write on:)
If you like any of the jungle themed goodies (word wall, number words, behavior management) you can check them out in my TPT store🙂
Here’s my calendar…we don’t have any active boards in our building so everything is done the old fashion way:) You can grab the days of the week that I used here from doodle bugs🙂 I also got the idea for my birthday display from Clutter free classroom. I plan to take pictures of the kiddos and post them under their birthday months:)
Here is a shot of the back of my room. I got the directions for the tree from Deanna Jump. She used material for the leaves on her tree though. When I went to the fabric store, I almost fell over when I saw that it was NINE DOLLARS a yard! Holy Cow!!! I opted for green poster board instead:) It’s hard to see my locker tags, but if you haven’t grabbed them yet, I have them as a freebie in my TPT store:) Click here!
Here is my helper display:
Here is a pocket chart stand that I made from PVC pipe. Then, I wrapped it with zebra print duct tape:) (The monster poem in the pocket chart is from Deanna Jump’s back to school math and literacy pack🙂
Here is my start student board. I got the idea for the title “Top Banana” here at Little Priorities:)
This freebie was made with clipart from Scrappindoodles.
I’m sure you guys have seen these all over pinterest and teaching blogs!!;) Here is my version of the storage crate benches:) If you haven’t seen them, you can grab some directions here🙂
And last, but not least, I got this SUPER cute idea from Under the alphabet tree! You just hang a ring above each table. Each time the entire table is on task and doing what they are supposed to do-they earn a monkey! (from Barrel of monkeys game) You just hang one on the ring! When they get 5 monkeys they get a reward:) LOVE it!;)
There you have it!;) Hope you enjoyed my jungle themed room and hopefully you got an idea or two to use in yours:)!
