Classroom Decorating Ideas
Aesthetics are important to make a classroom feel inviting to students, especially at a younger grades. School is a child’s first impactful experience with a large institution. They will be spending 30 or more hours a week in school. A majority of that time will be in the classroom. The biggest impact in their lives will be interacting with their teacher and fellow students. When it’s time to get down to the business of learning, a vibrant visual environment will help them feel more at home and engaged. Decorating a classroom with posters, maps, letters and incorporating classroom theme ideas can always be incorporated into lessons and therefore become no less important than traditional supplies and teaching resources.
Social and Emotional Learning
A well rounded student is about more than ‘reading, writing and arithmetic’. Every student’s emotional well-being and social awareness is vital to successful learning. It re-enforces what they are learning at home and balances their understanding of values they may be learning on television programs or through advertising. Free school supplies can also include teaching resources for mindfulness, diversity, inclusion, self awareness and how to deal properly with emotions and feelings.
