Here is how we will be doing lunch count each day. The kids will move their names to hot, cold, or milk only. This is also how I will take attendance. I like that it is on the side of my desk.
These number posters are wonderful. I also like how we hung them this year. My coworker's husband came up with the idea. Use 3M command hooks, sting, and mini clothespin (found at Wal-Mart). Now I do not have to worry about everything falling down in the winter when the sticky tack gets too cold.
I made my alphabet for my word wall a couple of years ago. I found in online but no longer know where I go the idea. I changed it to have things I wanted and things I had. Each letter has something on it that starts with that letter.
Here is a close up of some.

Here is our Welcome sign hung between the two kindergarten classrooms on our side of the building. I also love my I heart Mrs. Grenz sign that a student gave to me 2 years ago for teacher appreciation week.
I post the Common Core Standards behind my desk for easy reference when doing my lesson plans. I have them laminated so that I can write on them each year.
I use magnetic pocket charts to post my learning targets for each day.
This is our Noise-O-Meter. My previous students were actually better about using it than I was. They would remind me that it of what level we were on or that I needed to move it.
I just made this for the new school year. Students will have their name on the small sticky note and will put it next to their current goal. It will be constantly changing based on their writing. I am really excited to use it. It will also be a great checklist for the kiddos while they work on their writing. I got this idea from Pinterest and downloaded the labels.
