Classroom Baskets

I started at a new school last year in a new classroom, so there were lots of things that I wanted to do that just didn't get done!  One of those things was labeling the baskets where we keep supplies in the writing center.  I was totally inspired by the amazing things that I saw while I was blog hopping!!  I loved quite a few sets that I saw especially the ones at Ladybug's Teacher Files.  My only problem is that kindergarteners are very literal and if the label has scissors, markers, and crayons on it they will put all of those things in the same basket regardless of what they label says. (Maybe that is because at the beginning of the year many of them can't read, but that is beside the point!)  So I used the labels that I saw as inspiration and created my own.  Since I don't have a TpT or Teacher's Notebook store yet you can click on the picture below to see them and download them for free.  I hope you enjoy them!  If you do please consider becoming one of my first followers!

Kindergarten Handbook

I try to make things as easy as possible for parents, everyone is so busy these days!  So I put together this handbook with information specific for my classroom.  I think this is really helpful for parents who have their kids in kindergarten for the first time beacuse they have lots of questions. Parents can keep it all year long and refer to it when they have questions. 

I lost the formatting on it when I tried to upload it in an editable form so I just uploaded the PDF file so you could see it. Click on the picture below and it will open the document for you. If you would like it in a form you can edit for your own use just email me and I am happy to send you the file.
