When I visited Mitchell School last week I was impressed with the “little artistic touches” I saw there. These are such simple ideas, but they add a special feeling to the learning environment.

How about addition facts on the stairs? The science vocabulary leads to the upper grades. Letters, numbers, shapes and so many skills could “step up” learning.


What a clever idea to use a real picture frame to display children’s artwork!


And you know how much kids love to look at themselves in a mirror. You could put a full-length mirror in each hall with a positive word or character trait.
