The classroom is a place where students should want to learn. Many classrooms have the basics, such as desks, bookcases and chairs. You can take your classroom a step farther by offering the vibrant colors and designs that students will want to see so that they are encouraged to have fun while learning when you find contractors who will paint, install new flooring and update the overall design of the room.
One of the things that you can do to help students keep up with their books and notebooks is to attach cloth aprons onto the back of each seat. The compartments can be used for small books, pencils and other items that tend to get on the floor or lost in the classroom. Personalize each apron with the name of the student and something that the student likes.
Prevent the floor from getting scratches and the noise that is associated with the scraping of the chairs by attaching tennis balls to the feet. A contractor can work in the room to change the flooring to make it comfortable and more inviting for the students so that they can sit on the floor while reading or while they are in groups. Colorful carpeting is ideal for younger children who desire to see brighter colors in the classroom. Add more seating with colorful cushions that are placed on plastic crates. You need to stabilize the cushions so that they don’t fall when students sit on them, but these will add a brightness and a fun aspect to the room instead of students sitting at a desk all the time. Several crates can be put together with a long cushion on top to make a longer bench for storage.
A wine rack can be used in a corner to store writing utensils, such as pencils, markers and pens. Paint old tin cans to store utensils as well. Cardboard that is painted in bright colors and fun letters can feature chores that need to be done in the room, papers that need to be claimed and other centers that students need to see in the classroom.
