My Class has grown

While I was away in December my classroom was extended. Luckily, my boss has been really happy with the achievements of all the children last term and she decided to give us the library room that was next door. We sawed our way through to the library. My class is now much bigger and there is lots of room for us to add more materials. Here are a few pictures of our extended class. I had to move some of the materials over to the other area.

Mathematics Area. Each shelf or section is specific for one are of operation.
This is the view from the window end of the class.
The maps and cultural materials have moved to the other area.
This is a view of the window from the new end of the classroom. I am hoping to bring in a display shelf or cupboard for the children to display some of their work or nature findings. I need to add some more advanced practical life activities and science experiments.

Beautiful. I wish I could afford more materials for my children. I also wish I could afford the Montessori Certification to become a better guide for my children.
Thanks for your posts.
