    I am setting up my room. So far I have my math/science center, art center, building center, drama center, home living center, puppet center, writing center etc. I am left with a shelf that has all toys...cars, people, a small play house, car ramp, animals and I have no idea what to label this center! Any ideas?

    The play house I would put in dramatic play and the rest should go in blocks

    Yes, some folks have sort of a "small drama" area. Even the house would end up in blocks here as the group I have had would have created roads and stores and playgrounds for the people. The trouble is that the house can't really be played with on the ground. It makes the kids lay on their tummies...and then they kick block structures over. Perhaps, take some of the people over to blocks...encouraging back and forth usage and have a small drama area somewhere else.

    Thanks everyone for the input :) I have moved the cars over to the block center. The rest will remain a part of dramatic play :cool:

    One other thought. It seems like a lot of stuff. I don't know how many children are in your class. But for me, I know it's a long year and kids can get bored. I like to rotate materials and introduce new things bit by bit so that things stay fresh. I'm sure you know your stuff and what your kids can handle. I know mine wouldn't be able to handle that much to begin with.
