Classroom Set-Up

I am constantly making small changes to my classroom. As I see the children have lost interest in a certain center or basket of items that I have out to explore then I begin looking at what I might need to do to bring back new interest. Do I need to change the items that are in the baskets? Do I need to rework the space so there is more room for play? Do I need to give the children more time to play? Do I need to model play just a bit so I can inspire new interest?  So many questions to consider when setting up centers and then keeping them fresh and interesting throughout the school year.

The classroom environment is what I spend more time on as a teacher than anything else for I know the classroom environment is like a second teacher. The classroom environment affects learning, behavior, skill development, and all things related to having a happy and healthy early learning experience for both the child and the teacher. 

I have shared about classroom set up, classroom centers, or classroom management in the articles shared below...

But mostly, I hope that I will remember to tell my students all the good and positive things that I notice about what they are doing as we work together to learn about our classroom and build our community.
