Designing my learning environment!

SETTING UP MY ROOM WITH MOTHER GOOSE MATERIALS

Each month when setting up my room I think of what season we are in and put together the Mother Goose Wall, I of course added a couple of things to this wall that my kids really enjoy.  I choose a helper each day that takes a look at the weather, season, and dresses the weather guy.  I have not got the wall completed in this pic below but it is almost done.

Once I have the Mother Goose wall done I start to unpack and organize the curriculum, during the week when I receive it the kids like to go thru and see what we will be working on, but I save the tearing apart out of the bags until the weekend.

I pull out each bag and organize by day in a closed file folder and organize in order into my file cabinet.  Leaving out just the current week separated in my organizers below.

I use the stem projects outside and even take the lessons outside to complete.  We like being outside it gives us a sense of freedom.  We also like the freedom of this curriculum.

Below I put together the Mother Goose Wall here below is not finished.  I also added the weather chart because the kids love it.  Each child has a day they help.

Organized per day!

I love the fables but this week I think the stories were a little advanced for my group.

She had me cracking up!  They always like to take a sneak peek into the boxes and choose a day to look at.  She chose this one, I said give me a big ole smile and this is what we got.
