Renee Goularte's Kindergarten Classroom Tour
Big books are stored in boxes, classroom library books in crates and plastic tubs. The large rolling cart holds all supplies: an assortment of papers, glue, paste, and glue sticks, crayons, scissors, pencils, colored pencils, old magazines, and a bin of paper scraps for cutting and gluing. The reverse side of the cart has more books, homework folders, and extra plastic bins.
Below is a close-up of the little shelves that hold the students' writing files, seasonal books, and bins with the students' 'Magic Reading Bags'...
... large baggies which hold each student's word rings, little self-written books, name cards, alphabet cards, leveled books, and other personal reading materials.
This is the back wall, showing our large "color word" posters, supply cubbies, a little bookshelf, poem charts, and a bit of student artwork. Back there in the left corner is the play kitchen. The "color word" posters were made one week at a time; students cut pictures of magazines and glued them onto words written on the sheets of butcher paper.
The square cubbies hold materials that are available to students at all times; puzzles, games, various literacy and math activities, bins of scrap paper, small chalkboards and whiteboards, and their journals.
Student-written class books and cut up poems are kept on these shelves.
The poems on the wall are from weekly poetry activities.
