Learning Environment

The end is near! It has been a wonderful crazy year! Now is the time, when we can catch a breath, to start reflecting on the year. That running list of all of things that we want to change, keep, or find solutions for starts to accumulate. When you reflect on your classroom design, here is a great resource to get your creative thoughts going in order to plan your classroom set-up for next year. Not ready to think about it yet? No worries. Bookmark it, and save it for later. It is a great resource for thinking about room design to support all of the wonderful thinking and problem solving that we want from our students.

CANVAS CORNER
