Are you ready to get back to school with your students? Returning to school safely is going to make teachers think creatively when designing their classrooms! There are so many unknowns, but I know for sure that being organized and clean is going to play a big role in our Back to School routine this school year due to the pandemic. Look at some teacher tips for back to school with social distancing in mind.
Here are some classroom decor designs and teacher tips for you to ponder!
Returning Back to School Safely
1. This is a kindergarten teacher’s classroom by Lacy Jenkins. She decided to make the protectors in a fun way to be less intimidating! Lacy used PVC piping and clear shower curtains to make her dividers. Learning will be like a beach in this classroom!
2. How creative is this Teacher’s Brain? Jennifer Pierson transformed her desks into jeeps using cardboard boxes and clear shower curtains! The front of each jeep has a removable white plate for students to write their names on each morning for daily practice and check-in. Learning will be a smooth ride in this classroom!
3. Kaycie Huffman uses yoga mats, plastic serving trays, and individual bins for supplies to keep her students learning safely in the classroom.
4. Let’s talk about how obsessed I am with this amazing makeover by Schoolgirl Style! The colors scream happiness. There is social distancing happening, and it tells students some fun is going to happen in this space. (PHOTO: @eccampbellphotography )
5. Having sub material is going to be very important this year if you are in the classroom! Mrs. Henry in First ( @mrshenryinfirst ) has a great way to prepare for those unexpected absences!
6. Look at this Teacher HACK! Masks and shields muffle your voice, so @mshannahengelke found a wireless mic headset so kids can hear her from across the room. She also said she, “feels like a pop star from the 90s” wearing it. #micMASK
7. Use a Back to School Checklist to help you remember all the things you need to do before your year begins. Grab this FREE one with FLOOR MARKERS HERE.
