Decorating our IB Homerooms!
Our school, like many others, has chosen to have students stay pretty much in one classroom all day, and have teachers come to them. Students will split for language acquisition, but they will still only be in rooms that their grade use. (For example, we have two grade 6 homerooms, but we have an extra room, for when they break into their language classes). This is a big change from previous years, and instead of teachers being responsible for the classroom, the students can now take the lead! They can choose how they want their room to look and will also be responsible for maintaining that.
We have some time in their first few days of school to work on homeroom agreements, but we are also giving all classes, in Grades 6-10, a 60 or 90 minute slot to work on decorating their homerooms. We'll also build in some time throughout the year for them to make updates!
Here's the presentation we will use. Feel free to use it with your students too.
