Rules Whiteboard Teacher's Desk

Rules Computer Area
I believe that a U-shaped or V-shaped classroom layout is best for everyone in the classroom to feel included. My desk is located in the corner facing the student's desks in order for me to be able to keep my eye out for hands in the air and any problem behavior that may occur. The whiteboard is right in front and I have posted our classroom rules next to the whiteboard, in the front for all students to see and refer back to. I also posted rules right by the door for the students to know that our classroom rules also must be followed outside of the classroom. In the back we have computers and in the back corner there is a quiet area with beenbags and rugs for students to relax if they are feeling overwhelmed.
