Because of this quarantine, I am finally getting around to having the time to post our Education Hall makeover. Although it is only our K-5th graders that participate in Rotation I did not want to leave out the makeover that begins in our "cradle" class and preschool area.  The entire makeover begins at the beginning which is Genesis - this is reflected in our cradle roll and preschool area.

I will post videos/pictures later of our Rotation age hall which begins with Noah and goes through the life of Christ.

The Preschool hallway is made to be interactive in a couple of ways. All along the wall are birds that sing when squeezed.

These are mounted high enough so that adults can reach up and detach them and hand to children. Each bird is attached to the wall using velcro.

Also at both ends of the hall are small books that have laminated pictures of many things located in the hall- birds, animals, flowers, bugs,  etc.  The children are given these books along with a flashlight to find these items. It becomes quite a contest among them! ( The book and flashlight are circled in blue.)

We also found "forest" film that could be inserted into the fluorescent light panel to give the appearance of looking up through the canopy of a forest. (No, that's not a skylight. But it looks like one!)

Thank you - but as Paul in the Bible had helpers such as Barnabas and Silas I was merely the helper to a wonderful , talented woman at our church - who after retirement set herself to recreating our Education Hallways.  I excel in following directions!

This wall lead into our preschool if you turned the corner. The song fit perfectly with the overall theme. The scroll is simply a sheet of pink insulation foam for home improvement story. Primed and painted and then a hot iron sculpting tool was used to add edging, details and wording.

The stacked stone at the bottom is also the pink ( or blue) insulation sheeting. It also was cut and sculpted with the hot iron tool . Was primed and painted also and adhered to the was with liquid nails.
