Answer: It's not easy, but it's fun.
- Start by analysing your students' learning styles to identify their learning style preferences and needs.
- Create a Group Profile of your students to get the at-a-glance-summary of how they like their environment to look.
- Look at any results that are 80% or higher and select one or two of them that look like the easiest to change (the cheapest, the most exciting).
- Allow the children to help.
Some students are likely to grumble: they are probably the ones who value routine and are upset by change. Assure them that once they've tried to new way, they will be allowed to create an area in the new classroom that looks just like the old classroom.
