Finding Ideas for Classroom Makeovers

By Beth Newingham on June 18, 2012

I get some of my best ideas from looking at other teachers’ classrooms. For some ideas about classroom design, check out my 2009 classroom tour and view photos of my 2010 classroom.

For awesome classroom organization tips, read Angela Bunyi’s post "Getting Organized for Academic Success: Tackling the Paperwork Trail."

I wanted to look at the photos of your 2010 classroom, but I'm unable to get to it. Suggestions...

Beth, I have followed your fantastic ideas and themes for a couple of years. I have 2 burning questions for you: How big is your classroom and how many students do you have? I love everything you have the classroom but my room seems too small for all the chairs and a sofa in the classroom.

You are great!
