really small class

The school I'll be teaching at is adding K this year. I may have 4 students or a preK/K split with 10 students. I know some would be excited to have such a small class but I'm a little nervous. I'm thinking of ways to decorate my room and I can't picture it with a handful of kids. Encouragement please!

I would imagine a smaller size easier to decorate for, you can make the room more organized. I would go to a local educational store (in my area we have several) and look around. Something will come to you and I am sure it will be perfect!

Wow! I normally have a smaller class (due to classroom size), but 4-10 students is super small! You will be able to focus more on each individual child's needs and do more one-on-one work! I definitely think you will be able to be more organized and have more wall space for displaying student work!

I think you will have a wonderful year!

For the past two years I have had 13-17 students. We test our kids before they come and I got the lowest scoring kids. No where to go but up! They were still low at the end but not too low. Good luck

Decorate their own spaces...

With that few kids, I would designate places on the walls for the students to decorate themselves with their work. You can put up art work, writing, math, whatever...and they can be proud of their little spots. I've always had way too many kids to do that, almost too much to even hang one thing of each student.

Wow. That is really a small class. I think you will see lots of progress with them! Lucky you. I have always wanted to have a larger place in my room to show what unit of study we are studying. I would use a corner of the room to spotlight your current theme with books, stuffed animals, etc.
