as the title says really! how many separate areas do you have in your classrooms and what are they? and do you keep them throughout the year or change them?

 

thanks

I have a small classroom so my areas do have to alternate eg wet sand or dry sand.My creative table is the place for painting or dough or junk modelling etc, maths,mark making,computers,large construction,role play, book area all stay the same.The interactive whiteboard and computer bench (3 computers) tend to set the room and sinks down one side so very little room for manouver.We go outside through another class so it isnt free flow but have blackboards,wheeled stuff,water, sand or soil.a wendy house and clothes rail,mirror which they love,tent,table carpets etc.

im a montessori teacher so my environment is always changing whats in the room depends on the needs and interests of the individual child we have a seperate computer area and an outdoor classroom area. we dont have any role play available and i often worry that i am failing to meet the childrens needs in this area x jojom x
