    Ben - My classroom would have large tables with chairs rather than individual desks. The teachers desk is near the classroom entrance. The projectors are meant to represent white boards or screens on the walls, not overhead projectors. The room would have three side rooms attached to it. The first room would eb the reading room, it would have several large book shelves and plenty of sofas and chairs to sit on and read. The large rugs would also provide a place to sit for the kids. The middle section would be where we would watch movies or videos during the day. There are large rugs on the ground for the students to sit on. This provides an area that is easy to watch and keep under control for the [[#|teacher]]. The last area will be for the arts, it will have easels and painting supplies as well as other art supplies for the students to use. It will have a mini stage area and plenty of clothes and props for the students to pretend with or for them to put on mini plays and skits. The walled in areas provide privacy while the students read or do art activities. My room would be very big and have plenty of space to relax.

    Nicole - My ideal classroom would be very bright, colorful and interesting. As you walk through the door the teacher’s desk is on the right with four student tables in front of it. I prefer tables instead of individual desks making it easier for students to work in groups. Behind the teachers desk would be the TV as well as several shelves for storage of books, lessons and materials. Off to the side of the teachers desk would be an area set aside for prep and the kitchen area, this would be mainly for the teacher. Behind that is an area with computers for students to work on assignments and projects. Next is a carpeted area that contains clothing and an area for creative play or for groups to sit and work. On the right side behind the desks is another carpeted area which contains bean bags and comfy chairs with several book shelves, this is the reading area. In the back of the room is an art area with a table and 3 easels, as well as storage for different supplies used in the classroom.

    Andrea- My ideal room would be very big, since biology labs would have to go on in the room. The front part of my room would have: a whiteboard, a smartboard with two TVs beside it, a small conference area, some shelves and a laptop cart (one for each student). The middle of my room would have: individual desks for students for lecture periods, my desk and my computer- off to the left of the door. The back of the room would have large lab tables for collaborative thinking, another whiteboard, another TV for showing lab procedures, and many lab counters with storage underneath. There would also be a large storage closet in the back with a refrigerator (so that I could store pigs haha and other lab supplies that would need to be chilled) and an incubator for labs. The best part of my classroom would be the connected greenhouse! I had this in my high school, and not only did it allow us to do fun experiments with plants, but it let so much natural sunlight into the room. I would also probably decorate my room with all different types of nature and biology models. I would love for my classroom to be painted a light green color.

    Jason- My ideal classroom for an elementary level would be very comfortable and colorful. First off, being a choral music teacher, I would need to have a piano and risers in the room. For my layout, I have the kidney tables taking up the space of which the risers would and one of the teacher desks taking the place of the piano. Now, in elementary school, the students would learn the recorders as their primary instrument in every general music class, so I have shelves in the back corner where I would keep the students recorders when the students do not take them home. I have a sink for washing out the recorders as well as washing hands. I might use a movie or a white board in my classroom for musical concepts, that is why next to my desk (the teacher desk) I have a tv and a projector (which I am calling a white board!) For personal reasons and record keeping of music and tests and papers, I have a storage compartment next to the teacher desk. The three computer tables that you see would be modern technology MAC books and the piano keyboards that go along with the for the TI:ME technology. However, I only would like three stations because I would want my students to work together on learning and developing their musical concepts, and that way I can easily monitor what they are doing on the computers.

    These components in my classroom would allow for a full access elementary music learning environment for my students. In my room, I will have just about everything any music teacher would need for their classroom. However, it would be even more ideal if I had a storage room, like a closet, in my classroom. However, I only have this room and I believe it is designed well enough that the students will have not problem learning music. Any extra music instruments that I would have for my classroom would either sit back on the shelves or on top of my storage/filing cabinet. Although, I forgot to mention that my walls would be filled with musical posters and concepts and I would have on wall that is dedicated to outstanding student work. My classroom would be very hlepful to students learning abilities and that is why my set up is the perfect set up for an elementary music classroom.
