KINDERGARTEN JUNGLE ADVENTURE
Yesterday I got to have a personal tour of an adventure about to unfold. We are still 'up-north' in our summer haven along the peninsula of Green Bay. I FINALLY got to have my lunch date with one of my FAVE K teachers of all time. We decided to meet at the elementary to get caught up. My dear Lizz is going to be acting as mentor this year to a brand NEW K teacher, entering her very own jungle. Fresh. Excited. Straight out of college. Given a brand new room (the school is adding a 3rd section of K this year.)
I was given permission to capture Miss Emily's jungle prior to her student's arrival on Tuesday. I know how you like to look over my shoulder. Wait till you see!
I will need to add Emily's classic classroom door into my decorated door RoundUP.
That series of door photos is still my number one article here of all time.
Now back to some little vignettes around her room!
Yes. She told me that the jungle buckets came from the Target dollar spot.
The jungle vine chain was loving crafted together by Emily's entire family!
What a wonderful way to support your daughter's first classroom endeavor.
The vines are creeping all across the ceiling.
Here's an oh-so-clever kindergarten reading corner:
JUNGLE READING HUT!
*I'll have to add her 'Reading Hut' into my earlier Reading Center RoundUP.
We're now back out in the hallway.
This is the site for future projects to be hung on the clothesline,
above the kiddies cubbies to display proud projects.
Earlier this week I had an article all about the 'changing'
face expectations of kindergarten. What is the role of play in kindergarten today?
It's an issue very near and dear to my heart.... and a MUST read for every K teacher and K parent as well. I asked my social network of K teachers to comment and COMMENT they did -- with passion, insight and frustration.
I am ever and always grateful to you for pinning from my blog.
That is my very biggest source of readership and I thank you!
