We (actually Jorge and Hermes whom we hired) installed two large sound absorbent surfaces in room 220, including the gi-normous black bulletin board on the back wall. And the room instantly calmed the room. Yes, the students are noisy but the room itself was noisier (i.e., acting as an amplifier).
We'll be adding graphics shortly after school opens. Each of the students will be providing us with an introduction to themselves by using the Hi, My Name Is MindLib we prepared for the opening day of school. We will mount a portrait of each student—so everyone can see the awesome, effective kids of this 5th grade class!
