I like your idea of waiting to put stuff out...if that were the case in my room there wouldn't be anything out. Ha! I looked at your classroom from last year- I'm very jealous of the red locker shelf from IKEA that you have-I was going to get 2 of those for my room but I had to cut my budget back a little bit. Maybe next year.

I absolutely LOVE the idea of not putting out materials until the routines and procedures are in place! Too bad I missed this year...always next year:)


So happy to have found your blog! You have so many wonderful ideas!!! I pinned some of your pics {even if they were taken on your iPhone ; )} because they are very inspiring! Have a super year!

It's been a sincere pleasure keeping up with your blog and I'm forever checking back to check your category pages when I need something specific. Seeing your lessons and the obvious passion you have for children makes me want to go back in time and be a kindergartner again :)
