5 Ways to Redesign Your Classroom
It’s a new year, and it’s a great time to redesign your learning space along with all of the resolutions you have for yourself. It may even be one of your resolutions! Here are Learning Liftoff’s editors’ picks for the top five ways to redesign your learning space this weekend.
Organization is key, and many items in our classrooms and homes are sitting idle when they could easily be repurposed to aid in the effort. Do you have old plastic containers from the grocery store, milk crates, or old hardbound books? Use them as storage containers in your classroom.
Get a plant to add some color and life to your learning space. Not only will it increase student satisfaction, but it will also increase student performance according to Science Daily.
Tack up some inspirational quotes, or even the list of New Year’s resolutions you have created for yourself. After all, visualization is a key to achieving your goals.
