Preschool Classroom - 2010 Version

As I stated in my previous post, I moved the preschool classroom from downstairs to upstairs. This area was previously our living room/playroom. This link will take you to pictures of the 2009 living room and dining room as well as other pictures of upstairs rooms. I also reorganized the shelves and put quite a few items in the storage closet because this year, all the preschool students will be 2.5 when we start (our start date is the day after Labor Day.)

There are also some preschool/homeschool items that are in the dining room. The dining room is adjacent to the living room/preschool classroom area.
The Sensory/Practical Life/Block Area is in the dining room.
It is in the southeast corner.
There are shells in the nature box and some castle blocks.
The bottom row of drawers has castle blocks, tree blocks, and wooden blocks.
The upper row of drawers has glasses, bowls, tongs, cloths. You have to lift the top portion to be able to open the upper drawers.

These bins/drawers, etc. contain most of Jelly Bean's homeschool books and materials. It is in the southwest corner. (Sorry about the shelf that is falling. I didn't have the energy to try and fix it before I took the picture LOL)

This is the art cabinet. I no longer have free art available on the preschool shelves. (I'm brave, but not two year olds and an infant in a room with brand new carpet brave LOL)
The art cabinet is the northwest corner.
On the top is collage materials.
Watercolors, prismacolor pencils, pastels, charcoal, contact paper, big construction paper, etc.
Crayons, twistables, scissors
Markers, colored pencils, sketch books, paper.

The play kitchen.
It is in the northeast corner.

A picture of the whole dining room.
Jelly Bean is at the table, working on her spelling, I think.
Tomorrow, I'll post pictures of the "new" rec room. There won't be nearly as many pictures. I'll try and keep it down to 4-5 pictures, I swear.

Wow, what an inviting space. I'd love to set my 2 1/2 year old loose in there!
