Classroom Tour

I am joining the party a little late, but here is the tour of my new classroom!  I am actually team teaching kindergarten this year with my dear friend, Holly.  You may remember her-she used to blog here at The Lemonade Stand when this little blog first got started.   We have two classrooms connected by a small hallway.  My room is used for centers, math meeting, small groups, and for math whole group for my team.  I will blog more later about how that whole process works, but for today, here is a tour of my classroom.  I will post pics of the other classroom next week.

We went with Schoolgirl Style's Happy Rainbow collection to accent our kindergarten suite.  We were also inspired by Kindercraze's amazing classroom, so we combined the two themes.   They were both great because the color combinations matched perfectly with everything we already had.  All of our borders are Creative Teaching Press.

This is my classroom door.  I kept it simple so that I am not constantly changing it throughout the year.  The wreath is from TJ Maxx and the banner is from the Schoolgirl Style Happy Rainbow Collection.  The chalkboard above is from Hobby Lobby.

This is the view when you walk into the door.  

To the left of the door are the student cubbies.  Holly purchased these great black bins from Really Good Stuff.  They look so good!  All of the labels you see in my classroom are from the Happy Rainbow collection.  I love that they are editable so I was able to make everything I needed for my classroom.

I used her table signs to make this transportation sign by my door.  Student names are on the clothespins.

These are the cutest color signs!  I got them from A Perfect Blend.

As soon as you walk into the room, you go through the writing center area.  This is my classroom closet that I hung the pocket chart from.  There are clips on the chevron fabric for weekly tasks and anchor charts.  The buckets will hold different activities for the students to choose from.  The easel is from Ikea.

This shelf is on the other side of the writing center.  Holly painted it with chalkboard paint.  The kids love it!  They write their high frequency words and their names here for now.

This is my favorite part of the room.  The colors make me happy!  The chevron rug is from Rugs USA.  They have great prices on their rugs!

The rainbow banner is in the Happy Rainbow collection.   The calendar pieces on the whiteboard are from The First Grade Parade.  

Schoolgirl Style had this great banner on her blog, so I created my own.  It's one of my favorite pieces in the room. Her collection included fun digital papers so I used them to make these number posters.  I kept it low for students to be able to touch the posters.

The chair was originally white and I spray painted it.  The pink pillow was on clearance at Target last year.  I knew I needed that pillow!  

I laminated this scallop border and hot glued it to the SMART Board.  Don't worry!  It pops right off!   If you notice, I tried to do the scallop ombre border in a rainbow theme around the room.  It's the most beautiful border!  I ordered it early, because I knew it would sell out.  The Whole Brain posters are from Mrs. Jones' Creation Station.

I found this basket at Bargain Hunt for cheap.  It's so modern and fun!  Plus, it's the perfect size for anchor charts!

This is my desk area that I never visit.  I got the tassels on Jane and strung them on black ribbon.  They help hide those ugly metal desks.  

I suggest wrapping tables with fabric.  It's the perfect storage solution!

Kindercraze had this great sign over her desk and I knew we had to have them for our desks.  It was actually not too hard to make.

This is my guided reading area.  I have left plenty of space for the anchor charts we create.  The storage containers will hold all of my guided reading materials.  I haven't labeled them yet because I haven't quite figured out how I want it all organized for kindergarten.  I have hot glued everything to the walls because it's the only thing that will hold anything up.

That's a wooden table that we spray painted black.  The finish was just not real smooth, so we rolled it with chalkboard paint.  It looks great now!  Not sure how it will hold up, but I am hopeful that I can just continue to touch it up with paint.  The metal chairs were a find from Holly that we spray painted black. 

This is a mini-word wall for our high frequency words for my reading groups to refer to when we meet.  I will just clip the words as we go with a clothespin.

We had the curtains specially made by a former student's grandmother.  She's very talented and we always love her work.  The floor to ceiling length really elongates the room.

This is the view of the back of the room.  That's where you can find the classroom library and the technology center.

It's not the most organized library ever but it's working for now.  We just ran out of time and it's been okay.  We have students pull out one book bin and they can read from that bin during their center time. The posters are from A Year of Many Firsts.

These fun chalkboard pillows are from Ikea.  

This is our technology center, which is their favorite!

We have fabric all around our computer table.  That's where we hide all of our Saxon Phonics boxes.  

The cushions are from Amazon.  I ran out of time and didn't get the crate seats made, so I just flipped the crates over and got these cushions to put on top.  They are working out just fine!

This table was from Ikea.  It's perfect for them to sit their iPads on.

The trees were Kindercraze inspired.

This line that we use to hang student work is from Ikea, too.  I highly suggest buying these.  They are super durable!  You could even hang books from them.  They're that strong!

We painted everything black!  Including all of our shelves.  I love how it makes to bright colors pop!

The number posters are The First Grade Parade and the motivational posters are from Jamie Huerta.

In each of the monthly bags, we have a little gift for kids whose birthdays are that month.  

And these are our table caddies from Michaels.

And finally is our hallway display between the two rooms.  

We hung ribbon from binder clips to hang student work easily in the hallways.  


The silhouettes are from Schoolgirl Style.  I hope to do more in our classrooms, because they are beautiful!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my classroom!  It wasn't completely finished, but it's working for us just fine.  I have a few more details to add at some point, but you know how crazy it is to change classrooms.  I can't wait to share the other classroom with you!  I also can't wait to tour everyone else's room today!  Head on over to Blog Hoppin' to check them out!

  2. Hey there. Great room. Looks like you have fun with it. I have a question, how filled are the seat cushions? I ordered some that turned out not to have been stuffed very "stiffly." When you sat on them they went pretty flat, as if they hadn't been filled enough. When you order online you can't tell. Do these actually stay thick? Thanks. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom

    1. They are actually stuffed fairly well for the price. They are brand new, so I am not sure yet as to how they will hold up. They are much better quality than anything I have found in stores. I hope that helps!
