Well I went back to school last week and started my new school year with a new grade level and a new team. This year I am teaching Preps (you might call it Kinder) and I am no longer job sharing. While I was very sad to leave behind my Grade 2 and Grade 3 teaching partners I am super excited to have my own space and my own group.
So I have a new teaching journey this year, I haven't taught Prep for 6 years so I am going into this new adventure with some knowledge but also a lot to learn :)
I wanted to share some classroom photos with you today. I love my room, it makes me smile.
This is our library corner, the lanterns and fluffy decorations now hang from the ceiling. In the cloud storage basket is lots of book buddies and puppets for the kiddos to read to.
This is going to be my Sounds and Seasons tree. I will change out the colours each season to match, there is also a little birds nest that I plan on putting our letter of the day in. The students will pull it out and then choose from a range of objects, student names and words that will go on the sounds tree. The tree is now in a pot to protect his roots :) Next to the tree is our class calender.

Our home corner is very popular! Once again the lanterns and fluffy decorations are now hanging up thanks to my lovely groundsman.
Our home for the rest of the year!
I'm really looking forward to sharing my journey with you this year and even though I am physically and mentally exhausted right now, I am also brimming with excitement for the amazing learning that is going to happen for all of us here.
I'll be back with some posts about our rotations we have been doing,
