What's on the Shelf

We have already been in session for 2 days, I wanted to show close-ups of our shelves all set up for the beginning of the year.

This is the Practical Life Shelf:
From Top Right to Bottom Left:
A sushi mat to help practice rolling up work mats. A change sorting activity. Cutting.

Apple Tweezing. Pouring colored rice. Opening containers and black felt mat to spread them out on.

Infant/Toddler "Works." Horizontal Post. Peg board. Three Circle puzzle.

There are two reasons I have a few Infant/Toddler works out. 1-My one year old will be joining us after the first week. 2-Kids (especially the younger ones) like to refine skills that they have long since mastered. It helps them validate old skills and move onto the next thing.

This is the Sensorial Shelf:

Color Boxes 1 & 2. Animal sorting puzzle with bag to reach into and find shapes. 2 of 4 Knobless Cylinders.

Color Paddles. Red Rods.

Pink Tower. 2 of 4 Knobbed Cylinders.

This is the Math Shelf:

Geometric Solids and Blindfold to guess which shape by touch. Really cool Tag counting, peg drop.

Tree with 10 "apple" stickers to fill up the tree. Spindles.

Red and Blue Rods. Sandpaper Numbers.

This is the Language shelf:

Metal insets for design (I have not added colored pencils yet.)

Sandpaper letters. (We are beginning with r a m and f.) Some Pre-Reading matching Puzzles.

Moveable Alphabet.

This is the Reading Corner:

Look back for changes as we move through the year!
