The best board for the preschool classroom

A few years ago, I decided to buy a large square wooden framed box canvas. Let’s just say it wasn’t cheap but it happens to be one of the best boards you can buy for the preschool classroom.

I covered my board with felt so it can be used as a large flannel board. You can see how to make a flannel board by clicking here. I love having a large surface to share felt or flannel board stories and games with the children.

But I don’t just use it as a flannel board. I quickly discovered that this board makes a great space for large group activities on the floor.

Because it has plenty of space for the children to work on, the children enjoy being able to sit around it and work together.

I also change up the board by adding colored tape lines for graphing or sorting and other activities and of course, you can leave the felt off and simply invite the children to paint or write on the board too.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
