How to Change Things Mid-Year in the Classroom
Students crave consistency and routine but they also respond well to novelty! The middle of the year is a great time to try new things in your classroom.
You can change things as simple as where kids turn in papers or as big as your whole classroom arrangement. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time up at school over your break! 😉
The most important thing you need to do if you want to change things mid-year in the classroom is to create a plan. You can’t just go in all “willy-nilly” changing things- you need a plan!
On December 12, 2019 I am hosting a free live workshop, Master Your Classroom in 2020: How to have an organized classroom, make a big impact on your teaching, and not lose your mind in 2020!
The Mid-Year Classroom Tune-Up course is also available for teachers who want to tune up some things in their classroom and need help on what to change, how to change it, and the plan I was mentioning above.
More info for the Mid-Year Classroom Tune-Up course can be found here.
I’d love for you to have a listen HERE. And I would especially love it if you shared it with your other teacher friends!!!
