Set of numbered empty plastic jars, chdn know they can fill with different resources to use in role play, and at tidy up time arranged in order.

I want one of these areas. We have just set up a small construction area and the children love it and so do I. It was a little project of mine and it sort of got bigger and bigger and I have nearly finished it, just a few little extras to add. My next area is either Maths or mark making (depending on when the resource unit arrives, I ordered it in July and am still waiting).

 

I will be watching this space for ideas and inspiration!! :o

i have a maths corner where i store my trays of games, camels, compare bears, jigsaws, etc

i then have a display board and i have made a display which tends to stay up all term. this term i have a display of maths in the garden with a mixture of activies by children and adult. i have used sparkle box for inspiration ie flowers in tens and a beautiful photo sent in by another practioneer showing symmetrical butterflies and numberline caterpillars

 

previously i have done a snakes and ladders display with giant ladders and snakes surrounded by numberlines photos, etc

in baskets i have books games related to number

i also use the tops of the drawers to have pattern making materials out or playdough with candles etc and birthday cards i change these "come and have a go" games fortnightly, we also have a table nearby with number stamps paper pencils stencils etc nearby

use clothes hangers which hang over doors the plastic sort to hang over screen dividers where i hang tubs of frogs camels, tins of dice and number fans etc

everything is labelled with a photo and writing

it is a lovely cosy corner and the children enjoy selecting their games and playing with their friends
