Our February Mother Goose Time theme is It’s a Small World. This theme is one of my favorites! I thought I’d show you around our “room” or what’s in our space, currently. Read on for Around our Room Small World Preschool Theme.

It's a Small World Preschool Theme with Mother Goose Time! Take a look around our room and see what we're playing with and how we're learning about the world around us. #MGTblogger

A few things:

  • I work in my main living space.
  • It’s small.
  • It’s not perfect.
  • I’m guilty of having a lot available at once.
  • I have a lot of bins and shelves to label. I can’t keep up.
  • It works.
  • We’re busy.
  • It’s fun!

This is at the end of the kitchen/living room: our art table which is also used for snack and meal time. We also have our sensory bin in front the china cabinet. This table can be pulled out so more friends can play at the same time. There’s currently valentine rice in the sensory bin. And all over the floor. This is normal.

Our mobile is over the table. It is one of the best things I’ve ever bought. It’s a great way to display and decorate in small space. It’s very versatile. It has never fallen down or been pulled down, amazingly. Our suitcases (lacing and name spelling activity) are displayed on it currently.  Felt boards are shown on the table are from the Mother Goose Time Small World Toy Box. On the wall, you can also see our map mazes and heart map art.

On the china cabinet, there’s an orange tray that holds our Jurassic Plants from last month. We planted bean seeds that are now starting to grow.

Fridge Phonics magnets on our magnetic wall. I made this by the way, by attaching sheet metal (cut to size at a shop) at the end of my kitchen cabinet. It was a space that was very unused – such a waste! It’s a perfect spot for a magnetic board. I cut and glued on the trim – I’m not happy that you can see the glue at the bottom, but well, that’s what you get when you do it yourself and you’ve never done it before. Love it overall, an excellent use of space for us.

Our science shelf is very simple right now – just these three observation bottles from the Science Museum we visited in St. Paul last weekend. They are very popular!

Flags from All Nations I recycled a yogurt container to hold the flags. Using Modge Podge and Scholastic flyers, covered the outside. Then I punched holes in the lid for the flag sticks to be pushed through. Works great!
