Learning centers

This weeks Picnic Table Talk at ABC’s and 123’s is about Organization. One of my most favorite topics.

I absolutely love organizing – when I’m inspired to do so. With my children’s educational things and art supplies and kitchen, I found that being organized helps them and me find what we are looking for.

After seeing a concept similar to this on a website once, I created a hands-on exploration unit that my kids have free access to. I change things up as we get new things or if I get in a reorganizational type of mood.

Here is the unit all at once. It’s comprised of a 3×3 cube unit from Target and a 2×3 unit from Lowes. It contains hands on activities for montessori sensory activities, math and language activities and science activities.

    wow I love the way you organize things! I think I’m going to start putting my activities in pencil cases, great idea!

    Thank you – it was fun to organize things this way. I also change things up sometimes as I come across some neat finds, especially when I hit the garage sales and come up with some really inexpensive things to add to our learning center.

    this is probably the most amazing thing I’ve seen of anything “like” it

    Thanks Kristiana. I really love how the kids will just pull something off the shelves to explore. It really tickles me when I’ll find the kids looking at the rocks and shells with the magnifying glass, or play with the math manipulatives.
