Before the children arrive, the teacher will disarrange all the things in the classroom. Make the room look unclean and the things so chaotic. As they arrive, ask them to observe around them and let them express what they see and how they feel. Then, let them help clean the room and arrange all things in its proper place. Observe how they work, individually and as a group.
It also aimed to know the pre-service teacher’s ways and strategies on managing a classroom environment. The study considers the student’s personal information such as their name (optional) gender, age, and section. The researchers limited to the study are the fourth year students enrolled in the second semester, the school year 2016-2017 of Batangas State University who are in the field as part of their curriculum and training to become professional teachers. Each of the respondents was given a questionnaire to answer.
Education has always been an important tool that everyone seeks to better their lives in the future. Many see positive effects of schooling, one of which, students become more educated than they previously were. Education has an environment where students are encouraged to be tutored, socially interactive, and express extracurricular activities. Though many schools do have these aspects, these are not the only things that make up schools. One of which that many forget that crucially affect students is the class environment.
Most classrooms are analogous in their basic structure. They typically consist of the essential accessories such as chairs, tables, and desks. However moving past the basic structures they become more unique. Their distinguished qualities, often correspond with varying influential factors. These factors include, instructor and subject matter, school setting, and student population.

There are multiple ways of keeping healthy relationships either with children and young people or adults. You should create such environment that everybody should feel comfortable in. In an average classroom there are many children from different backgrounds and it is not an easy task to maintain a balanced atmosphere. First of all, you should communicate in the easiest and simplest way and make sure children communicate with each other positively. All the rules should be set out in a simple way, so people don 't get confused.
This classroom was unlike any other I have ever seen. All of the furniture in the room was child sized. There were a few tables and chairs in the kitchen area. Along with a sink and counter top with cabinets around it. There were lots of cubbies and shelves with different center activities on them.
The classroom has an office for staff right when you walk in, for staff to let parents in and out. They can see the students from the window, which is good for the safety of the children. Space and Furnishings: When I observed the space and furnishings, I rated it a seven.

The children in a school are valued, with an environment that fully encourages and celebrates their learning and progression and how they are developing. The provision of a safe and secure learning environment for all its pupils should be provided through recognizing the importance of welcoming diversity and equal opportunities. The atmosphere within a school should be positive, with this being reflected in the attitudes of the staff and pupils, all caring for and taking pride in their surroundings and in how the learning journey of each pupil takes
When reading this weeks text, I believe Carole Tomlinson (2014) gave me the best visual for the importance of an inclusive classroom. She wrote “Artful teaching is like a learning triangle. It is an equilateral triangle with the teacher, the kids, and the ‘stuff’ at each corner. If any one of these goes unattended and gets out of balance with the others, the artfulness is lost.” The words are really talking about our art for teaching, but I looked at this quote with a different view. I looked at this quote as the characteristics of an inclusive classroom. When one of these characteristics is unattended, then the classroom will be out of balance. The most important characteristics of an inclusive classroom is engaging the students. This means
The prepared environment is also a social environment allowing the children freedom to interact through work and play with others, developing empathy and compassion, and becoming socially aware. The children soon learn that this classroom belongs to them and they gladly accept responsibility for the orderly care and maintenance of the prepared environment. A keen sense of community life emerges as children take responsibility for their own behavior through the sharing of Grace and Courtesy Lessons and through their imitation of the behavior of their older, normalized peers and of the
A classroom should be filled with a wide variety of languages, experiences, and cultural diversity. An effective teacher understands the importance of culturally responsive teaching, and recognizes the significance of including students ' cultural references in all aspects of learning. Having an enriching classroom that engages all students does not mean making judgments about a student’s culture based on their skin color, gender, or socioeconomic status, rather it means knowing each student in a way that is individualized. According to the authors of The First Day of School: How to be an Effective Teacher Harry Wong, race, gender, religion, financial statue, and skin color is the least important factor determining a student’s achievement. Moreover, demographics and culture are not an excuse for students’ lack of achievement. (pg.80) Acknowledging and embracing a student’s racial or ethnic background is important, but it is just a piece of the educational puzzle. Effective teachers must be culturally responsive, with fine-tuned classroom management skills, and high expectations for all their students.
Thesis statement “Inclusion Helps Special Needs Students by Allowing Them to Develop Interactional Skills Because of the Exposure to a Social Environment.” Inclusion in education is an approach to educate students with special needs in regular classrooms, rejecting the need of special schools. The aim of this paper will be to demonstrate that inclusion of special needs students in regular classrooms helps them not only by developing interactional skills but also by allowing them to grow in a more desirable way in school. However, inclusion is not completely beneficial. One must consider that special needs is an umbrella of several necessities that demand different approaches.
