📋 Center Signs 📋

📋 Center Signs 📋

Most preschool classrooms are set up with what’s known as centers. Housekeeping, science & math, art and writing centers are just a few common centers. These areas are usually delineated well with furniture. Most teachers also add center signs with pics to indicate to children what’s expected in each center.

Here are a few of our signs. The pics of our preschoolers doing the activities in the center have been removed to protect identities.

I just snap candid shots of the preschoolers in each center and tape a few to the laminated signs. As you see the signs speak to parents, explaining what each child is learning as they play.

4th of July Fun!

4th of July Fun!

Independence Day is too big a concept for most preschoolers so we celebrate the fireworks, parades, and picnics.

Welcome to the Zoo!

Welcome to the Zoo!

Year after year our preschoolers have loved Greg & Steve’s Kids In Motion CD. For this theme we play Animal Action I & II. They love doing their impression of each animal. You can purchase it here.

For Zoo Week we began with this labor intencive project. It is so cute though!                                                                              Hand print zoo #2 Handprint animals with teacher painted details.
