Encouraging children to be serious about their learning can be difficult at the worst of times; never mind the challenge of helping them to enjoy being in the classroom!
To encourage students to learn, a classroom needs a variety of products that can help children to develop as best as they possibly can..
Here are our top four pieces of equipment that we recommend every classroom uses:
Student’s work wall displays
One of the most confidence-boosting things for a student (especially younger children) is to see their hard work displayed on the wall.
Brightly coloured notice boards are great for displaying work as colourful visual displays are proven to help children learn.
These large displays can help a school room feel less ‘classroom-like’ and improve a student’s attitude to learning.
Frequently changing these wall displays is essential to ensure that the student’s attention is focused at all times.
The whiteboard has been a classic piece of classroom equipment for years and thanks to their many different uses, they’re a great way to get children involved in their learning.
Large whiteboards that are wall mounted at the front of a room can be used to demonstrate the class, display any temporary notices and even teach the work itself.
Laptop whiteboards are also an essential piece of classroom equipment as they are a great way to keep the entire class actively involved in their learning.
Because the work created on a white board can easily be erased, it can help students draft their best work before handing it in to be marked!
For helping students to keep organised, tray storage is a true classroom equipment essential.
This kind of classroom storage can help students to manage their school work, books and personal belongings.
Our tray storage units have plastic runners and child-friendly hinges. They also come with two locks to ensure maximum safety in classrooms with younger children.
Using personal trays in a classroom can help students to feel more independent and also teaches great organisational skills for further learning.
Filing boxes are a great way to store a teacher’s paperwork without it feeling overwhelming.
For new teachers especially, it can be hard to keep up with the amount of paperwork and planning sheets that are created throughout every lesson.
Having a selection of filing boxes can make any teacher’s job a whole lot easier, and thanks to their easily organised sections; there’s no need to rummage around looking for last-minute worksheets!
Although these kinds of storage solutions are mainly used by teachers, it can help to set an example to younger students about having great organisational skills.
