drama center is always a huge hit in my classroom
Randa Dahshe

supporting communication through (Dramatic center and art center .. writing center)! I am thinking of that
erinrhyne

My environment is separated into learning centers and we rotate what is in them. The biggest parts of the space that work great for my specific kids are that we have a long space between our hallway and the front door that the kids use as a running track, and then we have a soft climber and we allow the kids to climb all over the couch as well, so they have a lot of opportunity for gross motor development
erinrhyne
35:27
exactly. So important to allow toddlers to climb and run when they need to.

We use Phillips HUE LED bulbs and have a huge wall of windows for natural light

Mirrors in the building center is such a fantastic idea

Ive wanted mirrors too but was then warned they needed to be shatterproof for earthquake safety- by well meaning neighbor not someone official. I
DEVON's iPad

Lakeshore

they are expensive though
erinrhyne
47:14
hahahah my kids would totally notice if the lamps were off but not because of how much light they put off but because they associate it with nap time. hahahaha

sonyavaliente

Randa Dahshe
48:31

Tamara
48:33
I have acrylic mirrrors and they work great!
erinrhyne
01:00:26
I de-clutter and rotate toys every 2 weeks and by the end of the 2 weeks it is like everything in the space has multiplied
Karen Kohler
01:01:04
I rotate when i observe a change in the childrens thinking and conversations
erinrhyne
01:02:47
I have had a very hard time figuring out what kind of flexible toys to have in a space with one and two year olds.
erinrhyne
01:08:01
OMG the chalkboard platform is such a cool idea. I made a quiet box for my kids that is in the nook between our changing table and a shelf and I covered it in contact paper and it has twinkle lights in it and a soft rug and pillow
Tamara
01:11:10
I know that my little ones are hungry, because they go and sit in their bumbo sits hahaha
erinrhyne
01:25:09
Since it is our home, we do have some minimal decorations at adult eye level, but then we also have things that are meaningful to the kids at their eye level.
Tamara
01:26:15
I´ve noticed that they love simple pictures (2 or 3 colors), of animals with big eyes :)
Tamara
01:26:34

sonyavaliente
01:29:31
