4 Great Tips to a Comfy Classroom

A Teacher’s Passion
Teaching is my greatest passion in life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have known that being in the classroom is all that I want. Every day when I wake up in the morning, I don’t regret, even for a second, choosing this wonderful profession. Being there for my students and helping them fill their brains with knowledge is enough fulfillment to last me a lifetime. There’s a certain feel about a classroom that makes my heart skip a beat when I walk in. The smell of dry erase markers, the desk plates that show ownership for each kid, the set up, the furniture, and the accessories that go along.

Organization is the key

To have success in the classroom, organization is a must. Training your students to keep everything neat and tidy is crucial to your sanity. The best way to do that is to provide all the tools for them to keep your room organized. Having office bins can be helpful as well as supply bins for each table. I am also a huge fan of color coding my tables with the the supply bins so that you can call your students up by table colors and organize all of their folders, binders, and book covers according to the color of their table.

Get Creative

Having motivational and educational posters around also helps the room to feel more warm and less bare. Having a cute border around your bulletin board that matches the theme of your room always makes the room come together. I have noticed that when your classroom is done up nice, the students respond better and feel more at home.

The Reading Corner

Having a nice reading corner is always so important to me as a teacher. The kids need to love reading and when they have a reading corner with comfy seating, good books, and pleasant lighting! Reading should be relaxing and it is our job as teachers to make sure that our students have a comfy reading corner to enjoy.

The Mini Lesson Zone

This area is so important to students learning and collaborating. The mini lesson zone is where the whole group learning happens. You want to be sure to have a comfy classroom rug where each student can have their own space. You also want to be sure to have a nice comfy chair for read alouds.

I hope that these four tips help guide you to inspiration for your classroom! The environment that we teach in is so important not only for the students, but for us as teachers. If our classroom is bland and boring, then we will probably be bland and boring!
