Children's Room: Create Clear Zones
Involve your kids by having them help designate zones. Start by asking them to pick out items that represent each of the different activities they do. "You make art? What can you find that you use to make art?" Continue sorting items like this until you have piles containing things like a paintbrush for art, a pillow for sleep and a book for reading. Then they can make signs (or take pictures) showing each of the activities and label each sign with the word for that activity. Use these signs to identify the different zones so that your children can quickly and easily see where things belong and also as an aid in their reading skills.
