Changes all around!!!

I can’t believe it’s already the 8th week of school!! Whew!! We made itbarely. There’s so much to share after 8 weeks that I may need to blog several times this week just to get it all in. Today’s post will be about a peek at my classroom and some changes that have occurred at our school.
There have been quite a few changes since I last blogged. For one my best friend, blogging partner and teacher wife decided she needed a change from kinder after 10 years and moved to another school to teach 3rd grade. I am so proud of her!! Everyone knows changing schools and grades is really hard, but I’m also really sad. 
What will I do without her?!?
She’s so amazing though and I know she will thrive at her new school. I miss her terribly but I know she made the right decision. When she gets more familiar with third we will add some of the activities from her dual language class.
More changes...from our group of 6 dual language kinder teachers 3 of them either switched schools (like Cindy), went to another district or got moved to Pre-K. Talk about major changes! We went from having a wonderful team to starting all over again with new people. It’s been soooooo hard. This year has really been difficult so far but on a positive note my students are so AMAZING!! I really love my class. Our school is really incorporating Conscious Discipline and you can see the changes in the kids. They are so much nicer to each other and also seem to use their Big Voice more. Way to go Pre-K teachers!! Here's a few pics of my Superheroes!!
I'd also like to share a few pics of my classroom! This is what it looks like from my teacher table.
This is our library and writing center. Our library also has our Conscious Discipline "Kind City" which is like the Kindness Tree. 
This is the calendar, alphabet frieze and schedule.
Bilingual center chart and Spanish word wall

Student lockers with superhero locker tags, above the lockers are the superhero color, shape and numbers 1-20 cards. You can get all of these at our TpT store.

Here a few Conscious Discipline components that are implemented in our classroom. Wish you well, Safe Place aka "Safeville", breathing strategy and feelings cards and the breathing mat.

Happy blogging - Sandra and Cindy
