How to Apply Minimalism to your Classroom?
“Less is more” is an old expression we hear these days. With downsizing and decluttering as a trend for many years now, “minimalism” has gained popularity! If you have the time and are able to watch Netflix “Tidying Up” highlighting Marie Kondo’s techniques, you would agree that it spells the end of hoarding.
Aside from the “does it spark joy” effect on us after watching, the show also helped us realize how we became so busy with our lives, and we sometimes overlook that our things keep on piling up leaving our homes or offices cluttered. “Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom” as defined by theminimalists.
We came across this interesting topic called “Tips to Organize and Declutter Your Classroom” by Molly Kiebel. It is worth the read, and we thought that with your busy schedule this would give you an idea of how you can start minimalism in your classroom!
