I do not manage free play time. I can step into current activities and give them some idea. Also, I remind them to clean up toys if they decide to change activities. That's it.
I have 12 kids and a lot of different centers:
-coloring
-painting
-lego
-playdough
-craft
-puzzles (have counted them right now. there are 118 puzzles here)
-blocks (different sizes and materials. in both of our rooms)
-puppets center
-fine motor skills toys area
-memory games
-books(in both of our rooms)
-dress-up area
-dolls area
-kitchen area
-cars area (even will not try to count them. Definitely more than one hundred.
...

I do not rotate toys. As a result, kids know where is each toy and always can take what they want as well as where each toy supposed to be returned.
