Spruce Up the Classroom Before Your Students Return from Winter Break

With the holiday season coming to a close, it means that kids will be back in the classroom in no time. While there’s break in the action, what better time to spruce up your classroom and surprise your students with a livelier place to learn.

Recent studies by the Georgia Educational Research Association have actually shown that classrooms that implement more modern design features, such as alternative seating, have shown positive results in student performance, and it may help make that transition back from winter break a little more pleasant.

Think Outside the Desk

Over the past couple of decades, classrooms have become far more than rows of desks facing the board. Classrooms have evolved into spaces of heightened productivity that are cleverly crafted for each age group.

Great modern classrooms showcase multiple seating choices for students that increase time spent on-task without distraction or discomfort. Layouts that mix group-centric seating, individual seating, or even floor seating also allow teachers to use the right arrangement for the right subject.

Where to Look for Classroom Game-Changers

Before wading through dozens of expensive classroom furniture catalogs, be sure to check out the end of the year deals. For the empty floor space in your classroom, you can save 10% on EVA multi-purpose puzzle play mats when you purchase 25 or more tiles, any thickness or color! Perfect for filling extra-large open spaces or to gift to the neighboring classroom.

As always, We Sell Mats is the best place to buy equipment like our tumbling octagons which can be adapted into alternative seats for students who prefer them, and our yoga/exercise mats are excellent for silent reading time.

Misconceptions About Foam Flooring You Shouldn’t Believe

Foam flooring and mats are commonly used in businesses, schools, gyms, and even homes. But despite their popularity, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding this type of floor surface. So today, we’re going to take a look at a few misconceptions and the truth behind them.

Foam flooring is too expensive. As far as reasonably priced flooring goes, foam floor mats are a great option. Foam flooring offers not only a low upfront cost, but it’s cost-effective — this surface is durable and can be used in creative ways to develop colorful patterns if you desire. The durability, flexibility, and low maintenance make it worth the cost.

There is only one use for foam flooring. Many people believe foam flooring is only used for fitness. And while it’s true that foam carpet tiles and mats, along with gymnastics wedges, are often used in the 180,000 fitness clubs around the world, there are several other uses. Foam interlocking floor mats are great for schools, sensory rooms, and even work settings as well.

All foam flooring is anti-fatigue. While it’s true that foam flooring does provide cushioning, foam can vary in density and durability, meaning not all foam flooring is anti-fatigue. There are a few foams that are labeled as “anti-fatigue” but generally, it’s good to choose a foam that offers some cushioning while still remaining sturdy.

It’s difficult to clean foam flooring. Cleaning and maintenance is always a concern regarding flooring. Fortunately, foam flooring, tumbling mats, and gymnastics wedges are some of the easiest surfaces to clean. Debris like dust and dirt should be swept away regularly and foam surfaces can then be cleaned with basic soap and water. It’s important to let the material completely dry before rolling it up or using it again but other than that, maintenance is a breeze.

You can’t move foam flooring around. One of the many great things about foam flooring is that it is lightweight and easy to move. This is great for places like schools, cheerleading gyms, and trade shows where the need for certain types of floor surfaces may change. It’s especially easy to move interlocking floor mats to different areas of a room or even in a building. This allows users to change the flooring to fit their different needs.

Hopefully, this article cleared up any confusion regarding foam flooring. This surface option is cost-effective, versatile, and can be a great addition to a lot of different environments.
