Classroom Activities to Build a Positive Environment

One classroom essential for teachers is creating a safe, supportive atmosphere where learning can be cultivated in a fun atmosphere.

Why not start on creating a great, nice atmosphere right now, at the start of the calendar year? It’s a great time to conjure up some changes that will bring about success. With that in mind, today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator in Upstate New York, fills us in on some classroom activities designed to help your students thrive.

Janelle’s ideas include:

  • Mindful Meditation
  • Brain Break
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article like this: “Using these research-based activities for cultivating student well-being is the key to a successful, positive classroom climate. They encourage students to connect, relax, and value one another. While it may seem like a process at first, give it some time and you will see the changes happen.”
