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|
