Opportunities to write in every area of the classroom. It is so important that those children who never choose to enter the mark making areas are receiving the same chances in other areas of their play.
Luisa Simmons repurposed a wood pallet by cutting it into smaller pieces to be used as a medium for drawing. Family portraits were drawn by our 3 year-old students. Family-blocks will be used by the children in the block center. @Kinderoo Children's Academy ≈≈
Tree that I made in my classroom. It's bulletin board paper all scrunched up. It's stuffed to make it 3-D. We call it the peaceful tree. Children are encouraged to sit by the tree when they are in trouble, sad, angry, tired, etc. There is a library & clipboards for kids to write/draw their feelings.
