For those of you who are new to teaching, laying out / designing your classroom can be a bit intimidating.  Here are some pictures of what my previous classrooms looked like on the first day of school.  The key is not to put too much up on the first day.  Make enough space to allow for your instruction to guide the displays.  If you put too much up, you’ll find students can be over-whelmed.
