My room is not completely done as I still have a crazy long list of things to do!
Over the summer, the whole school received a new balanced learning environment in their classroom, so lots of rearranging was needed. (you will see the new furniture in the pictures)
The balanced learning environment works in 3 areas. Students can sit and work with peers (ex tables), students can work alone (ex desks) and students can stand and work (standing tables and standing desks). We also have a variety of chairs in our rooms. Some wobbly stools, some rocker chairs and some sturdy normal chairs.
Here’s some pictures of my room!
I teach in an open concept school as well, so you will see in the pics that I have no door and only 2 1/4 walls. lol You will be able to see into other classrooms!
