Classroom Makeover

This week,  I am on SPRING BREAK!!!

I'll be at school at least one day this week.  I need to do something to my classroom to help me and my students make it through the last quarter of the year.  I have new portable whiteboards coming for AVID tutorials.  That will be nice.  But I need more. 

Here's what I'm thinking so far:
  • Hanging paper lantern lights from Ikea.  Cheap and effective to rid myself of the overheads.
  • I'd also like to add a nice big rug for the front of my room where we've started doing whole class laptop instruction. My worry is allergies with a rug and I would need to do some vacuuming.
  • I'm also going to plaster one section of my back wall with student pictures.
  • One of my bulletin boards is going to become a student work gallery.  I've been horrible about displaying student work this year.
  • I'd love to make some sort of Laptop Lounge in my room but I don't really know what that would look like.
Any tips tricks or ideas?   I'd love hear them in the comments.

I'm loving all those ideas, Knaus. I might borrow the paper lanterns one for next year.
