A classroom is a place where students interact and learn new skills. It is said that there is a direct relationship between the learning environment and student achievement. For an effective learning environment, there should be a positive atmosphere along with the requirements to make it a suitable place for learning.

There are many things to consider, but just a few simple changes can help you create that perfect environment. Here are some tips!

Make your room flexible

A flexible classroom allows you to make changes easily based on the learning requirements. Students will be able to engage in team activities and group discussions, whereby everyone can get involved.

Greet your students

Greet your students one-by-one as they enter through the classroom door, this ensures that each student has had at least 1 positive interaction that day. A greeting could be a handshake, a "hello" or even a high five! It boosts their readiness to learn, while also creating a sense of security.
