I like my classroom, but I am always looking for ways to improve the layout of it. As part of the 30-day Teacher Blogging Challenge, I will share some photos of my classroom and list what I see, and what I don’t see that I’d like to.
|I like having room for groups of 3-4 desks, but wish I had more space to rearrange desks easily.|
|I like having a classroom library, but could always use more space.|
What I see
What I don’t see, but wish I did
Ceiling-mounted projector (so we don’t blind ourselves or block the screen when presenting to the class).
More space for books
Benches, stools, or milk crates – to create a more permanent read aloud/meeting area near the front of the room
A Chromebook cart with 25 Chromebooks
A set of e-readers (Kindles, Nooks, etc.)
More storage space (shelves or cabinets)
Ceiling fans (or air conditioner)
|I like that students can take ownership of the classroom space.|
|I like seeing students collaborate and present their work|
Over the years, I have obtained computers, Kindles, a projector, many books, furniture and more through grants I have written. Of course, I have also purchased many supplies myself. There are always ways to get what is needed for the classroom. I’m looking forward to viewing other posts from this challenge to get more ideas for how to improve my classroom.
