Third grade teacher Robin Huddlestone is in a tiny portable classroom with little room to spread out her desks. She likes her current arrangement, but had a huge problem with kids copying each other’s answers and being unfocused during independent work times. She collected some old science fair displays that were hanging around the teacher’s lounge and used them to create mini-dividers between the kids’ desks. “It gives students the perfect amount of privacy without isolating them,” she says. “They can still work cooperatively when needed, and for major projects, the boards can easily be lifted away.”
Do you have an idea to submit for Works-For-Me Wednesday? Take a photo of something that’s working in YOUR classroom (anything you’ve done to help organize or manage your classroom and/or improve instruction) and email it to angela [at] thecornerstoneforteachers [dot] com. I’d love to feature your idea here on an upcoming Wednesday!
