I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for "Five for Friday". Thank you to Kacey for hosting.
I am also linking up with Forever in 5th Grade for the monthly "Show and Tell Tuesday." Thank you to Stephanie Rye for hosting!
This show and tell is all about the beginning process to creating a classroom that conforms to the "Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale." That is ECERS for short. Here are my baby steps...
My first move was to bring back the kitchen furniture that had been in storage all these years "for a defined interest center."
Here is the addition of sand play area. I purchased the play sand and tub at Lowe's for about $13.00. Provisions for sand and/or water play was an area I was missing.
Last week we had a beautiful weather day. I planned a nature walk with the class. This gave us an opportunity to put together a nature tray. The tray is accessible all day.
This is only one of the nature collections we have. We also have explored seashells. The nature/science area is a work in progress. It is still missing required materials.
To be continued...
My TK group has been working on making pictures out of shapes.
This "shape man" was made from attribute blocks!
