If your classroom could benefit from room dividers but you are not exactly sure how to use them, here are a few ways to save your school a little money and create a comfortable and effective classroom environment for your students.
First of all, portable room dividers are much more flexible than ceiling partitions or a fixed wall. Portable room dividers can be used anywhere you need to divide space and they don’t take up much room when you need to store them.
Room Dividers create quiet areas in your classroom and reduce noise and distractions. Room dividers will cut visual distractions by blocking those distractions altogether. Screenflex dividers also reduce the noise in your room by absorbing as much as 60 % of sound and dividers help to cut down on reverberation. When sound is absorbed instead of bouncing back, it is easier for students to hear and focus on the lesson.
Ideas For Your Classroom Using Screenflex Room Dividers
Reduce Classroom Distractions
This photo shows how one class can be divided into two. Just one divider can be pulled across to cut distractions from the other group. Two teachers can teach with limited interruption.
In this photo, the librarian set up a reading/book corner for the first graders. Kids know where to go on library days to pick out their books for the week. The librarian can select books of a first-grade level reducing confusion and allowing students to pick from a smaller selection of books.
Distraction Free For Test Taking
Any classroom can use a quiet spot for test taking. This classroom in Ohio sent us this great photo. Before using Screenflex, students had to sit in the hallway to re-take a test. Hallway distractions are not conducive to productive test taking.
Room dividers work well to minimize classroom distractions. Distractions can disrupt learning and lower productivity. Eliminating distractions can provide a quieter and more productive environment for learning.
