Last year, my coworker and I at Parkside class chose to try theming our classrooms like Hogwarts houses from Harry Potter series. It moved over so well with your pupils that we chose to go on it one step more this season and motif our whole hallway. We hired a local artist to paint murals and included three-dimensional elements to offer our students a completely immersive experience. We’ve transformed our entire seventh and 8th class hallway so that our pupils will feel they truly are walking the halls of Hogwarts.
Other as compared to murals, the transformation has-been done by the two of us with inexpensive materials and donated products. Since changing the rooms last year, we have had a massive decline in student control recommendations and a heightened interest among our middle school students in reading and speaking about publications.
Parkside is a K-8th level college in rural Cullman County, Alabama. It’s a title one school in an economically depressed area. The project ended up being done entirely with funds raised by our 5K race and out of instructors’ very own pockets. I’ve no clue what number of hours we allocated to it-definitely in the hundreds at this point! Our principal has been really supportive of our a few ideas and allowing united states to get this done task.
