I have some pictures on some of the threads on the Kindy Ideas forum. I think I have some on Kangaroo and Penguin where we got silly. And I have some stories on my blog.homebychoice wrote:I would love a picture of your K experience...your space, your organization, your kids' work, etc!
I can try to describe some of it.
I keep a 3 drawer organizer for most of the Kindy stuff. I’m at the stage where I don’t have to worry as much about little ones grabbing glue bottles out of it. I use to have to keep all kinds of things up high, but it changes over time. The drawer is placed near the kitchen table.
Top drawer I keep things like markers, crayons, pencils, little Dot ink markers, our “picture card envelope” from the Kindy manual.
Middle drawer (it’s a mess right now. I’m not sure what I planned to keep in there, but I know that’s where the craft sticks were kept for place value. And some construction paper. Other basic art supplies.
Big bottom drawer. I keep a folder of the worksheets after they are completed. And the Lauri letters fit in there. And library books for the unit.
Above that drawer, I had the area for doing 100 chart and place value and even my hanging pockets that I hope helps to introduce addition and subtraction. That hanging thing was not part of the program.
I keep the unit badges on an inside. And the flashcards are held up by letter magnets on the back door.
Other calendar stuff is on the front door held by magnets.
So, we spread out through the living room and kitchen and tables. Then my older girls have different cabinet for stuff in ECC and a little desk.
