I know that most of you still have many more weeks of summer vacation, but being a bit compulsive I was always thinking, and planning and shopping and making things for the next year. As soon as the carpet was cleaned and the custodians finished in my room I was ready to start pushing around furniture and getting ready for the new crop of kids. I loved the freedom to stop into my classroom for an hour or so, and then leave and go do something else.
The problem was that once I stopped in to school it was hard for me to leave! Anyway, I just wanted to share some ideas for labeling your classroom. I found out what a tremendous difference it makes when you are encouraging or expecting children to put away materials. Parents were always amazed at how willing and efficient the children were at cleaning up, but it was mostly because they knew exactly where everything belonged, and they knew that everyone was expected to help.
Another very important reason to label your classroom is that is it such a great way to encourage children to read for a real purpose, they begin to understand that reading is not only about fun stories but also meaningful and helpful. One way I labeled materials in my classroom was by putting a picture and the word on the container of materials, and the identical label on the shelf where it belonged.
Sometimes I took photographs of the actual toys or materials and used those as labels.

Work samples from the school year. Here is a sample of work that was done that year by some of my students. Cut up sentences are one of my favorite things to do in kindergarten. If you take a look at the picture above the words have all been cut off the bottom and glued onto the top of the paper. At the beginning of the year the sentences start off in order.

First grade is a crucial year for building reading skills. In 1st grade, students begin to define themselves with respect to what kind of readers they are. While this is already being done in the classroom, it can certainly be done at home too. In 1st grade, there is also a change in the classroom structure from that of preschool and kindergarten. The 1st grade classroom is usually organized more like a traditional elementary school classroom, with tables and desks at which students spend more of their time.
However, in most classrooms there is still a meeting area for lessons and class discussions, as well as areas or centers dedicated to different subjects of learning. For instance, there may be an area with all of the math tools and supplies and a class library dedicated to reading. Technology also becomes a more important part of the 1st grade classroom as students learn about and use it more. Keep in mind that your child will need to adjust to this new learning environment. He may get tired at the end of the day or have trouble focusing as the day progresses.
At home, give your child time to rest after school or allow him to play and exert his energy in the morning before school. Most importantly, give your child time to adjust.

She is gaining phonemic awareness as she plays with words, she is learning vocabulary when I explain words like broth, fleece, fiddle and curds and whey. She is starting to sing some of the rhymes and she echoes the inflection of our voices as we emphasize different parts of the rhymes. Nursery Rhymes are part of our culture and I think it is important for children to experience them.
In Kindergarten these rhymes can be used to enhance early reading skills in lots of ways. One of my favorite ways to use Nursery Rhymes was to retell them. Each rhyme is really a miniature story that children can act out, sing or retell from memory.
