Show me the classroom you teach in and I tell you the type of teacher you are. Our classrooms reflect our personalities and can tell alot on us. The first thing that impresses not only your students but any other visitor is the way you manage the space in your classroom, the way your seating chairs are organized, and the way your desk is presented.
You might wrongly think that these are tertiary things have a little importance in your teaching environment and probably do not make any difference; definitely not. For an effective learning to take place, all factors at play , regardless of their importance degree, must be in congruence with one another and the learning environment, in other words the physical space inside your classroom, is one of these factors.
A clean, smartly spaced and visually stimulating classroom can help students learn better and it might even increase their engagement and boost their motivation. Part of classroom management and of student behavioural problems is linked to the physical layout of our classrooms. Learning is, after all, a psychological process and if we know how to set the ground for such a process to develop smoothly then we would have put our hands on one of the keys to effective learning and teaching strategies. In this regard, and to help teachers make their classrooms visually rich in educational posters and materials relevant to the development of students cognitive capacities, we are providing you with some great educational quotes as featured in Simplek12 website.
You can use a word editor like Word and increase the fonts of these quotes, add colours to them and customize them the way you want and when you are done you can print them off and hang them on your classroom wall .
In case you are not content with the quotes below then I recommend that you check this post where I have cited some awesome resources where to find more educational quotes.
