9. The Dos and Don’ts of Setting Up Your Classroom

Setting up your classroom

The myriad of choices and factors to consider when thinking about setting up your classroom can be overwhelming. 


Every teacher shares the common goal of establishing an inviting environment that fosters a sense of welcome and comfort for their students. Additionally, considering the substantial time you’ll spend in the classroom throughout the day, it’s crucial that the space brings you joy as well.


Today, we talk about the things you SHOULD include in setting up your classroom, the things you COULD include, and one thing we believe you DON’T need to worry about. 


  • A reading space
  • An organised space for your teacher papers
  • A door display



  • A Wow wall
  • A Word wall/place for vocabulary


Don’t worry about:

  • Laminating every simple thing! (Don’t worry; we discuss some alternatives to laminating in this episode, too)
