I am linking up with Kacey this week with my five.
It's been awhile since I've been on the blogging scene. I have been very busy taking an online classes for my early childhood certificate. I have 3 classes to go!
We started school Monday of last week and we have not yet been able complete a full week. First school was closed for two days due to the "Pilot Fire" and this week school is closed again due to the "Blue Cut Fire." Between the evacuations and poor air quality, schools just haven't been able to run. This is the view from my window on the first night the second fire started. You can see the smoke cloud covering the sky and making the sun appear red.
I used CraftyPammy's "The Cat in the Shoe" after reading the book Rocking in My School Shoes by James Dean and Eric Litwin to create my first bulletin board display. You can get the templates here: Pete the Cat Craft
My classroom has had a serious make-over! You can see that there are several different areas for the children to play. Pictured are the kitchen area, blocks, dress up center, math area, and where you see the children, the Stem corner. I also have a puppet area, science station, and I've brought back the sandbox and quiet area. These are not pictured. This beautiful room is the result of a supportive principal who was willing to invest money making our TK program developmentally appropriate.
Here are some of my new little darlings! As soon as the saw the camera, they wanted their pictures taken!
These are finally available in my TpT store!
