Practical Life...some faves are on the bottom shelf. There is baby washing & place setting. I love art. I teach the Elements of Art at the beginning of the year. So I intro lots of artist...then I get specific with a monthly artist. In the pic are cutting,gluing,punching (thanks for that idea Laura), pencil sharping, & since our class is named The Blooming Cactus...there is gluing flowers on a cactus cutout. I wanted something special to represent our class. Also, I have rock crayons & rock painting since that'll be themed for the beginning of all art...Cave Art!!
This is Geography. I made individual continent boxes...inside them are a continent punching, 3 part cards, & objects that represent that continent. Thanks Lorie @www.montessoriforveryone.com for that idea. Also, I made with my friend Hilary, landforms with sandpaper. I'm excited to see how the children will like them.
Children love this area..even if they don't know how to read.
And of course, the peace corner (more like...area)..there's a personal CD player with peaceful music, pictures, a globe, & a box with a special music box inside that I use on the first day of school with my silence lesson. Tomorrow is the first day...
