Tot School shelf and E's table
Table, random cat (Felicity), and half of the Montessori shelves
Other half of the Montessori shelves and a relatively clean computer desk
And I know some of you are curious of what exactly is on those shelves, so here is a breakdown of the Montessori shelves. The Tot School/PL shelf still gets rotated quite frequently, but the Montessori shelves will stay mostly the same so E knows where everything "lives" - where to get it from and where to put it back away. I apologize for the picture quality - I was so excited, I took these the night we got the shelves up. Couldn't wait until morning for better light.

middle: spindle box, sandpaper letters, Melissa and Doug pattern blocks

top: knobless cylinders, touch boards, brown stain
bottom: knobbed cylinders, pink tower, (spindle box)
top: alphabet cabinet (miniatures), sandpaper letters, alphabet BOB book set
bottom: moveable alphabet, (knobbed cylinders)
And, just in case you're still curious, here is what was on our Tot School/PL shelf when I took all these pictures. Like I said, this changes regularly - you'll have to wait until this week's Tot School post to see what is on the shelves this week. :)
E wants to point out that there is a "gwobe" on top of the shelf.
top: counters and popsicle sticks, spelling E's name, what's different activity
middle: sorting, pouring
bottom: button snake, bird cards and figures, color dominoes
I just found out that I might have another "student" for the summer! My neighbor saw my setup and wants her son to come work with E and I a few times a week. He goes to regular preschool during the school year. I'm excited, I think it will be a good chance for me to see if I want to pony up the money for Montessori teacher training or not, and it will be a good for E to get to work with another child.
