Welcome to my Kindergarten Corral!
This is my job chart area. The jobs are posted on Wanted Posters and my students' names are on badges. My jobs are Trail Guide, Door Rustler, Sheriff (Teacher's Helper), Ranch Hands (lunchroom helpers & classroom monitors), Lantern Lighter, Pony Express (Messengers), Paper Wranglers, Book Posse (Classroom Librarians), and Banker. Each job earns a paycheck at the end of the week.
Here is my behavior chart.
Here is my Buckaroo Bucks Classroom Economy. My students earn money or get debits each day for their behavior based on the color they receive at the end of the day. I also hand out Buckaroo Bucks throughout the day to reinforce positive behavior. Students who have jobs that week receive a paycheck on Friday before the General Store (classroom store) opens.
This is my General Store. Each drawer is worth a different dollar amount. (Sorry, the labels are missing in this picture.) The top drawer contains stickers and is worth $5. My students receive $5 at the beginning of the week to start off. As long as, they can keep that $5 then they will receive at least a sticker at the end of the week.
Above my windows, I made a valance using blue and red bandanas. I LOVE this added touch.
Here is my Word Wall and a close up of the letters. You can also see part of my Alphabet and Color Posters at the top.

Above my Calendar Math board I have my Shape and Number Posters that I made. (I don't know what happened to the pictures of my Calendar Math Board. They are missing. I'll have to take them again and repost later.)
Hello, little cute armadillo!
I added these cute 3D cactus around my room for detail. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!
I also have my seat sacks that my mom made for me my First year teaching. They have survived 10 years of teaching and are still going strong!
Well, that's my Kindergarten Corral! What do you all think? I LOVE my theme this year. I went back and forth for many weeks before deciding and I couldn't be happier. Even though, I look around my room everyday and think about what else I need to add. Do any of you do the same?
