    Making Misiera's classrooms a little more colorful

    Day 352

    Don’t be Afraid to Have Fun

    There’s a reason why teachers like posters in their classrooms. They’re colorful and inspirational. They can spark a student’s creativity and dreams. And, they’re just fun.

    The walls of Misiera primary school were bare. The teachers saw this as a missed opportunity – an opportunity to add some life and excitement to their classrooms.

    “We use the charts for learning in class,” said a teacher named Phiona. “When they’re hung, people can keep learning even when a teacher is not around.”

    We loved Phiona’s idea – and thought it was perfect for 365.

    We found a local school supply store that had just the thing the teachers were looking for! Charts for learning to count, biological diagrams, and the alphabet all laminated and ready for hanging.

    As the teachers unrolled the new teaching materials, the classrooms began to brighten up and fill with color, just as the teachers had dreamed.

    There’s nothing wrong with a little fun and color in the classroom. Especially when it encourages kids to learn!
