On the first day of school the students were given the challenge of designing their perfect classroom. They assessed their needs and wants. They then observed the materials they had to work with. Students worked in groups to create a map of the classroom. They presented their ideas and decided together which ideas to implement. The end result is fantastic! The students decided to use bookshelves as our standing work space, create a reading space, take legs off tables to create a sitting work space, and use some material to make a shade for the window. They worked collaboratively to create a space that they can call their own! I look forward to the amazing learning that they will be doing in this space.
