Adding Fireplace to your classroom

I’m guessing your building principal isn’t going to approve any plans to add a full functioning fireplace to your classroom. I don’t blame them. But we can still set the mood with a nice, relaxing, crackling fireplace in your room.

If you have a projector in your classroom, project these on full screen, and you’ve just set an awesome mood in your classroom as you read a story, as kids work quietly on homework, or just to create a warming scene.

Need more relaxation? Play some classical musical. Classical music has been shown to improve concentration and attentiveness. It can reduce tension and anxiety and creative a positive environment for students. You can also use instrumental music as well. There are plenty of youtube playlists ready for you to use for free.
