Fifth grade classrooms are different from Kindergarten classrooms
By Mia Poppinga
Kindergarten classrooms are different from fifth grade classrooms! I wanted to see the difference between the two classrooms and what different grades put up on their walls. All the photos that I took you are going to love!!!:) In fifth grade classrooms there are advanced math posters and in kindergarten there are easier math posters like 1+2=3. In fifth grade the posters say 100+43=143!
In this research I found out that the two classrooms are different, but some things are similar.
This is in Melissa’s kindergarten classroom. They have a colorful calendar and each day of the week is a different color.
This shows a door to the closet where they have separate cubbies to keep their backpacks and jackets. Our closet is a huge closet with no cubbies.
The Kindergarteners have center time. It is a time where they can relax and play. This is the block center where they can build cities including the subway and train tracks. They can use their imaginations.
In fifth grade, sadly we do not have center time.
In Kindergarten they count the school days. In Fifth grade, we have a calendar that we use
but we don’t count the days. We can do more math in our heads.
The Kindergarteners have handwriting books to learn how to write. In fifth grade, we don’t need these books because we already know how to write neatly. In Fifth grade, we use cubbies too for our books and materials.
The Kindergarteners have cubbies that they use for their folders, math books, handwriting books and notebooks. They have numbers on their cubbies and in Fifth grade we just have our names.
In fifth grade we have calculators, protractors and rulers.
