I love listening center! When I taught kindergarten before I had wonderful selections of books and interactive activities. But I struggled with keeping the materials and equiptment in an manageable system that small group to small group didn't need me to get them going. This year I have a plan. I have always seen and loved the listening center table at Lakeshore, but it's out of my purchasing power personally and professionally. So I made my my own.

Back to kinder!
I am so excited I miss kindergarten. Here are some pictures of my new classroom as I received it in June.
I love the classroom theme of superheroes but also wanted colors that were versatile so I went with lime green grey and black felt. I also got new carpet thanks to my mother and aunt Linda . Check it out:
Black chalkboard paint and lime green wall!
Polka curtains grey with lime green dots
Grey paint and black felt for my calendar time and other daily reviews
My grandfather died last week at the age of 93. The family could not find a bow with Great Grandpa on it so they asked me to make it. I was sad. I had made bows for his presents over the years, but I had not made such a personalized one for him, a man, or for a funeral. Here are some pictures. It was a great way to honor my grandfather. It now is a graveside bow.
