A Visual Tour

Here’s a quick peek at my new classroom. It’s been a lot of adjusting and rearranging, but it’s calmed me a lot to have the room set up my way. I know where everything is now! Yay! Imagine that before all of the shelves were pushed against all the walls. The middle of the room was one big open area, and the beautiful windows were blocked off. Ever since I started at the school 5 years ago, the room has been arranged the same way.

Here is half of the Kitchen / Practical Life area

This is my favorite spot in the room: the Science Corner. I adore the garden right outside the window!Science CornerHere is our Line Time area with a view of my not-yet-organized Sensorial shelves and my fledgling peace-table.

It’s been a very very busy few weeks, and I feel today that it paid off. This morning was so beautiful during work time. One girl cut and arranged flowers from our garden into little vases to place around the room, another child was walking peacefully through a Red Rod maze while holding a bell, and two boys sat in the science corner discussing the bugs they’d seen outside. I’m so very lucky and happy!

  1. It looks so lovely. I love setting out rooms, in some ways, it is my happiest time because of anticipating how it will be used and loved!

    I can’t beleive that the room didn’t get moved around for five years. We move on a termly, if not half termly basis – there is always a tweak needed depending on the needs of the children and they grow so quickly that changes become necessary as materials are added and taken away.
