Classroom Tour Part 1

It has been a long three days, but the result has been worth it.  
  
Here was the plan


 The picture above is the plan for the front half of my classroom.  I have an extremely large room (35 feet X 55 feet) yes you are reading that right.  Most teachers dream is to have a bigger classroom, but some days I go home and wish for a smaller one.  One of these days I need to wear a pedometer to see how many steps I take in a day getting around this room.  

Before Picture Monday Afternoon I had already been working on my desk area before I thought of taking pictures,

 One of my obstacles is that I have a stage area in the room and if I do not plan around it, it becomes a running and jumping area.  To solve the problem I am going to place the children's cubbies in front of the steps to form a wall.

I wanted to make sure that I provided areas that would help me meet the Preschool Learning Foundation as well as being able to support the Common Core Standards.
 This table and area is what I also use as my individual instruction table.  Where I pull 3 to 4 children at a time and work on one to one instruction.

 This corner in the classroom was a changing table that we have turned into a parent resource area that they can find books and articles that can be checked out for reading.
