I love making something old something new. With a fresh coat of paint and some new pillows, something old was made something new. Rather than spending a ton of money buying new iron porch furniture, I spent $15 on paint and made the old chairs and table fit what we have now. They are fresh and interesting.
It’s wonderful bliss to change an entire room by rearranging furniture or putting up new curtains. Maybe, as we head back to our classrooms or offices, we can change something old to make it new. What if we moved the furniture in our classrooms or offices? How about teaching an old lesson in a new way? Could we approach a book study through a different avenue? What interest could we add to a lesson by the use of technology or co-teaching with another educator? How could we change the way students show us what they have learned?
May your Monday be full of the excitement that comes with something new.
