I’m moving to a new school that has never had an art program before! I have a beautiful (old science) Room w lots of storage. What advice do you have for me?
Label where everything is!!! It helps you and your students to keep your room tidy!
I totally agree, I also use pictures of the item on the labels ( for kids who can’t read or struggle with reading or language )
I’d see if they can put locks on your cabinets. Teachers with master room keys getting into our supplies is a real problem. Congratulations on the new job
I’m in an old Science room as well! (Entering my 3rd year at this school) Really make it your own and utilize the wall space and open floor plan for a nice flow to your classroom procedures. My students love the natural lighting from our big windows.
I think being able to group students is best, and large tables are ideal. Then you have to consider traffic patterns, and access to sinks, etc. Important displays should be away from splashing water. Lucky you to have that storage!
