Room Transformation Magic: Creating New Worlds for Reading

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What happens when you combine literacy instruction with a bit of whimsy and imagination? Not just the transformation of a room, but a transformation among students who enter your classroom. Students who may have challenges with reading or writing and are unmotivated become excited and empowered about an adventure in learning.

Join this session for some fresh ideas about how to utilize social emotional learning strategies to give literacy instruction a flair. We will delve into the possibilities of how YOU can transform your classroom, in big or even small ways, to engage students. Discover how to make even mundane skills seem new and exciting.

Participants will be shown ideas for accomplishing a room transformation, receive book title recommendations, and be given writing prompts. Participants will see how transforming a classroom and including social and emotional elements can allow students to make meaning from otherwise challenging and overwhelming concepts. The results may seem magical!
