Classroom Set Up that Improves Teaching and Learning

There is more to classroom set up than creating a beautiful environment.  When arranging our rooms, we consider how we "use" our room.

I love your set up. I'm excited to try some of your ideas. I have a tiny room. How big is Megan's room? Thanks for sharing so much of yourselves!

I appreciate the time taken for posting many of these well-planned ideas for setting up the school year - excellent class management techniques and exceptional organizational expertise. I know I will implement a number of them. Your incoming children are fortunate to have dedicated teachers like the both of you in creating such a beautiful and welcoming environment.

Kim and Megan,

Do you use fabric or cloth tablecloths on the tables ? Where are some places to locate cute ones ?

Thanks !
