Darling Decor for Fourth Grade Friends

My students need fresh decor to spruce up our classroom environment. We are in need of a smaller rug, storage cubes, pillows, bulletin board cut outs, and book bins.

My Students

I teach the best students in the world! I'm not just saying that; they really are quite incredible! Some of my students have overcome so much in their short lives already while others are just trying to figure this whole "school" thing out. I love my students- their personalities, their ambition, their humor, their endeavors, their stories, and their hearts.

This time of year, I look at the way their eyes sparkle and smiles light up our classroom and start dreaming of how to spoil my students the following year just as well, if not better than, this year.

They deserve the best, and I want my classroom to provide that feeling for them.

My Project

The environment of a classroom can completely change a student's perspective on school. The child that struggles academically may not necessarily want to come to school, but an appealing classroom may give them the motivation they need. The child that needs a safe place may look for an environment that shows peace and comfort as a way to escape home life. The child with few personal possessions may see a classroom as their paradise. Still, the child striving for academic growth may look for organized resources to succeed. I strive to meet all of these needs and more by creating a classroom that is calming and minimizes a potentially stressful environment.

Kids today already have to worry about peer interaction, academic rigor, and rising to expectations, but a calming environment can make a world of difference.

I would like to incorporate colors such as aqua, black, and white to be easy on the eyes. By providing a pillows with motivational quotes and a rug, they will be lured to the reading nook. The bulletin board cut outs will serve as a place for them to show off their successes by each student having their own. The book bins and storage cubes will aid in storage and organization so that our classroom remains tidy and easy to utilize on a daily basis. My hope is that these small decor additions will add comfort and care to our room. Then, that comfort and care will lead to trust, peace, and encouragement.
