Reggio Inspired: Color

Woot! Day two of my sneak peek into a local Reggio inspired preschool, Rosa Parks. The quality of classroom environment in this school is off the charts. Today I am going to share a few of their color ideas. Simple canvas boards with color collections. I love all the texture. A close up of the color collection. Almost every classroom had a version of this color application. Paint value chips were used to designate the place for each color family. Love it! Here is the same idea on a black…

Look what I made... - Create Teach Share

I am a teacher who loves designing creative and fun bulletin boards to display student work. For my first several years of teaching I was in a portable. Believe it or not, I loved it! The whole classroom was one giant bulletin board, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, and ready to decorate! In my new classroom I have…

Loving Them To Pieces

I feel like all I've been doing this year is writing about boxes. These are the top and bottom of a long box that came along with our giant tube (which I've still not had the courage to cut up into shorter pieces). Watching children play with boxes makes me want to write a poem about them. Or sing a song. These they seem to like to hide under, together, making it feel for a few seconds as if there are fewer children at school today. Then suddenly they burst back out into the light, bringing…

The Brilliant Child

Happy Summer 2012! I have been so busy with new roles in my career but that hasn't stopped me from taking numerous pictures throughout the year...nor my intentions of recording the work that takes place in this environment! I can't wait to share them with you - FINALLY! AND...thank you for being patient! This year I humbly serve as a Head Directress of a preprimary room, a faculty member, and a board member of a Montessori society...exciting roles indeed! In addition, I have been trying to…

So simple.  Dowels on a board, with various cylindrical accessories.

Objective led planning or In the moment planning?

Objective led planning Objective led planning Is a term born from Alistair Bryce Clegg; Education Consultant and Early Years Author. It is where you target a small group of children who are heading towards the same objective. You enter their…
