Arranging and rearranging the materials, shelves, tables, and chairs can be a lot of fun, but itís tempting to always wonder if thereís another, better way that you just havenít tried yet.


A few simple principles should always be adhered to Ė they represent the classic Montessori classroom layout. As you can imagine, a preschool classroom layout is slightly different from an elementary one. The differences mirror the changing nature of the elementary child as they move from a wholly concrete environment to a more abstract one.


In a 3-6 classroom, the area closest to the entrance of the room should be, if at all possible, practical life. Sometimes this depends on where the sink is, but since it is the first place that most young children begin working when entering 3-6, it needs to be the first thing they see when entering the room. After that, each of the curricular areas proceeds around the room.

3-6 Classroom Order:


Practical Life
Sensorial
Math
Language
Cultural


Itís easy to see the progression here; sensorial materials are usually the next step after practical life. Since many sensorial materials rely on the decimal system (10 cubes in the pink tower, 10 red rods, etc.), these materials transition nicely to math. Many children recognize numbers before letters, but soon they are ready for language materials. After the acquisition of language comes the ability to learn about culture Ė biology, history, geography, physical science, art, and music.
