Bright colors! They make me happy. And student work/posters

I agree with bright colors. There are a lot of wars to decorate with paint color decks, paper lanterns, and lamps if you can use them in your room.

We cannot hang things in our room (Colorado Fire Codes), but I’ve found party city has nice theme decor. Goodwill has unwanted pictures/furniture/decor that may be useful for a classroom. What are YOUR favorite colors? I’ve seen beautiful and tasteful classrooms patterned in black and white. Are you allowed to paint the walls? Hire your students! Do you have a hobby? I participate in the Paint with a Twist classes, and hang up my weekend projects. I’ve also been influenced by my own students and pin up something cool they’ve done... who cares where? I’ve visited veteran teachers who’ve spent their number of years decorating every inch of their walls with tiny pictures of students, pets, and family events. More specifically, these teachers have requested every guest sign a leather bound journal with a quill pen. Some teachers make huge paper flowers, or use old book pages to design a bulletin board. Do you like ET? Harry Potter? My little Pony? Start a collection! This also gives associative insight for students and colleagues for gifts.

Colors are nice! Either a rainbow of them or a color theme. A theme would be nice too. I’ve seen some pretty cool themes, from pineapples to lilo and stitcg

Hello Everyone, I’m was trying to help some of our secondary RSP teachers determine what they can do with their student’s during LAB/ Study Skills Class. Some of my ideas included: Work on incomplete classwork or homework, work on goals, study for test and quizzes, work on projects, goal setting for the next semester, organize google classroom assignments or practice for the state exams. If they are other ideas I would love to hear them! Thanks everyone
