Classroom Tour

Hello and welcome to your new classroom!  I thought I would take a few pictures to give those who haven't had a chance to come visit a virtual tour.

When you come to school, you will have a chance to sign in and find your cubby tag.

This is where you will choose a place to put your things.  Each child gets a top square (where your cubby tag goes) and shares the bottom half with someone else.  During the day you will keep your belongings here.  If you create something and want to take it home, this is where you will put it.  When it is time to go home, you will grab your things and put your cubby tag away so it is ready for the next child!

This is a place you can always go to to create with paper, scissors, crayons, markers, and all sorts of things. 

The sand table is a great place when you want to feel something interesting.  You can scoop, pour, squeeze, separate, and dump.

This is an empty stage ready for all kinds of things.

This is the block shelf.  There is an area in front of it to build.  I wonder if you can think of something that could fit inside those baskets...

This is the kitchen and dramatic play area.  There are dress-up clothes, babies, food, and even pots and pans!

This is the art studio.  A lot of really cool things can happen here.  This is where we can explore and really think about new materials in different ways.

This is the bathroom we share with Ms. Lenihan's class.

And last but not least are "the girls."  These are guinea pigs names Penny and Ellie.  They are very curious and we will be spending a lot of time talking about how we can treat them and take care of them. 

I can't wait to see all of you soon!
