The Beach Just Opened!

Sorry for the lack of posting...I've updated my classroom blog, but I've totally neglected this one! I'm back! :)

We don't have a traditional classroom "home living/housekeeping" area and this has forced us to get pretty creative throughout the year. This semester we have set up a Pet Shop, a Garden Center, and now we have the beach! You ask...what do you do at the beach? I told my kids my favorite thing to do was to read at the beach - so of course, they all want to read at the beach too! Gotta love kindergarten students!

It's super simple, and the kids have loved it! I added a fun table cloth and grass skirt to a table and set out a few beach towels and beach chairs. The students got to choose their favorite books to go in the center. It's a great way to sneak in some more reading time in a FUN way during these last couple of weeks of school.

A peek at the beach:
To add some fun-flair, we created a mural after reading Rainbow Fish. This morning, we will complete a shared writing "chit-chat" type message about Rainbow Fish to accompany the art work.
