22 Amazing Teachers Who Socially Distanced Their Classrooms In A Fun Way

No one would’ve thought that going back to school in 2020 would be filled with uncertainty. But these resourceful teachers came up with brilliant ways to make socially distanced classrooms less scary. The coronavirus pandemic is affecting the lives of all people in a very negative way and this also includes young people. Early this year, schools around the world were closed to protect children and students from the pandemic. For months, children stayed home as part of lockdown implementation to prevent the spread of the virus.

As restrictions begin to ease despite the lingering threat of Covid-19, educators are insisting to reopen schools. Apparently, parents have mixed opinions about this. Online and virtual education was the initial proposal in most countries. However, pediatricians and educators claim that virtual education is a pale shadow of the real thing. And nothing is as effective as the traditional face-to-face learning. For this reason, national governments are making decisions on control measures to allow students to return to school while keeping them safe from the pandemic.

Before classes can resume, schools are required to impose strict limits on contact between students and teachers. So, physical distancing and wearing of face masks should be observed all the time. Furthermore, administrators should provide hygiene measures to everyone inside the premises. These include handwashing, cleaning procedures for facilities and safe food preparation. Considering all of these changes, the ‘new classroom’ may confuse, or even scare, children when they return to school. This is why some teachers are finding ways to make classrooms more agreeable and comfortable for them.
