Listening Centre: This is a really fun and relaxing centre. You can find old disk man's or an older cd player in garage sales or second hand stores for really cheap. The library often has a great selection of story cd's for children or music for children. The child can put on some head phones and listen on their own or in pairs to the cds. You could also produce your own, reading a book into a recording device on your computer, you can burn the stories to disk and the children could read along with you.
Reading Centre: This was always my favourite as a child. Books are a great way to spend sometime, even if you do not know how to read yet, the pictures are a great activity. Children enjoy telling each other the story or making up their own to go with the pictures.
Creative/Sensory Centre: This is always a fun centre, you can use this for playdough or even for you water and sand centre. Anything where the children can create, feel and learn.
Art Centre: This could be anything from drawing, painting, gluing, cuting, colouring or even beading and crocheting for older children.
Manipulative Centre: Lacing, shape boxes, puzzles, lego, blocks and more.
Gross Motor: This is anything that the children will be using their larger muscles. Blocks, foam ball basket ball and soccer, tunnels and more.
This is just a sample of the ideas you can use for your centres. Please share some of your great ideas as well.
