Welcome! Me & Marie Learning is going to be moving to it's own NEW website! If you follow by Google Friend Connect please follow in one of the ways below (as GFC will not be available on the new site).
A couple months ago I posted this post about the center signs that I created with my Cricut. Now I am sharing pictures of our actual centers with the center signs in play! We are lucky enough to have two classrooms. One regular classroom and one centers classroom. Here are photos from our center's classroom.
Only two students are allowed at each center. Each student has a clothespin programmed with thier name. To go to a center they clip thier clip to the number 1 or number 2 on the center sign of the center they wish to go to. If they would like to switch centers they simply move thier clip. I do not require that my students visit certain centers. It is completely thier choice. Although, I have found that all students has visited all centers on thier own throughout time. I was amazed at how easy the clip system was with my pre-k students. They picked up on the system quickly and we rarely have any issues during center time.
