SOLSC #8 Where will you put that?

During the month of March, I am participating in
the Slice of Life Story Challenge.
All participants are writing about one moment, one part of their day, every day for thirty-one days. My slices will be primarily about teaching preschoolers.
Check out the Two Writing Teachers website for many more reflections on teaching.

It's not perfect, but I finally a created a display area for the 3-d work of my preschoolers. I found a bin of wire shelving in my basement, abandoned by my oldest son after his dorm years. This shelving wasn't quite enough for my 23 preschoolers, so I purchased some more. I am hoping it will be a semi-permanent part of my classroom, something that I can leave up every year. Now, every student has one 12" cube to display engineering, sculptures, and more. This is going to be perfect for our upcoming Learning Showcase! And a great way to keep my sanity as I work with children, because now I have a place to store their treasures. The children feel very special that they each have their own space - and everyone is working on the pre-literacy skill of reading their names, since that is how each cube is labeled.  :-)


  1. Perfect! And it will be a great way for visitors to see, too. The challenge of displaying 3-d things was always a challenge at my school. There just isn't enough space for huge creations, and they often took work table space. Nice to see, Maureen!

  2. Having the engineering projects and sculptures will make the wall look like an art installation. Can't wait to see the pics!
