To decorate or not to decorate? Decorate, of course. Not only do I decorate my home for special holidays, but I also decorate my classroom. When I moved from the intermediate to the middle school, I wondered if my hormonal, nonchalant middle schoolers would actually even care or notice. Well, to my surprise, not only did they notice, they LOVED it.
I think we assume too often that because our students are older or indifferent, they won’t still enjoy the little things they did when younger. Yes, I know, with some things that is true, unfortunately. However, I’ve found that even middle schoolers still appreciate the added little touch of decor.
Do you decorate your home/classroom? Below are a few different ways I’ve decorated my classroom. I have to say…it doesn’t only bring a little extra joy to my students but to me as well.
Until next time,
