Room is Ready!

Well today I made my trip to my classroom to set up my room.  I'm getting a little better at this each year.  I'm hoping not to go back until the first day of school.  I live about 35 mins from my school so I try to do as much as I can from home.  I have to say I was a little depressed when I thought about how awesome some of the classrooms are on other teachers blogs.  I have absolutely no storage (not even a closet) so it's hard for me to make my room look as amazing as others.  Not to mention I have a very small classroom with fixtures that are older than I am.  So for all of you disappointed by your old stuff and lack of space, I'm with you!  I did take a couple pics of some of the things in my room I do like.

Here's my Kissing Hand that I do on the first few days of school.  The students will put their heart hand print (with a kiss) around the bulletin board.  They are really excited about their first kindergarten art project of making their own hand print.  I also found these great math center games- for free- at the TPT store, Have Fun in Kinder.
These are great.-
On a side note, she also has this great brown bear game, which I also do at the beginning of the school year. 
I always like showing the video of the book on my SMART board as well.  You can find it on YouTube Just click the link
Since my room is the "shark" room, it is decorated in a fish/ocean theme.  I found these cute little fish at Dollar Tree which I added to the library area and though they were super cute!
I didn't take many pics today because I was so focused on getting my room done in one day.  I pretty well achieved that goal, with a lot of help from my mom.  Tomorrow I'm going to be looking up more Chicka Chicka Boom Boom games, and possibly making a few, so I will post those ASAP
