Classroom Set-Up

I am constantly making small changes to my classroom. As I see the children have lost interest in a certain center or basket of items that I have out to explore then I begin looking at what I might need to do to bring back new interest. Do I need to change the items that are in the baskets? Do I need to rework the space so there is more room for play? Do I need to give the children more time to play? Do I need to model play just a bit so I can inspire new interest?  So many questions to consider when setting up centers and then keeping them fresh and interesting throughout the school year.

Teach Preschool Classroom Environment

The classroom environment is what I spend more time on as a teacher than anything else for I know the classroom environment is like a second teacher. The classroom environment affects learning, behavior, skill development, and all things related to having a happy and healthy early learning experience for both the child and the teacher.

To read the posts I have shared about classroom set up, classroom centers, or classroom management – see the list of titles below.

    Hello Deborah, I’ve been thinking a lot about de-cluttering my classroom walls. I know you talk a lot about making the most of wall space with interactive boards. How about above the childs reachable space. When I first started 5 years ago I purchased some cute shapes and stick kids to hang on the walls. I’m rethinking this. What are your thoughts on less distractive walls in the classroom. I love how you seem to mostly display the kids artwork.
