    When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:

    “This would take me hours to set up.”

    “This is going to cost so much money.”

    “This looks so overwhelming.”

    “I could never do this!”

    What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?

    Let's Start with the Basics...What is a Classroom Transformation?

    A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.

    Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a classroom transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!

    A Quick Description

    This is a bundle of 40 math classroom transformations where students get to pretend they are actually in different careers!

    Print out all 10 posters and all 10 aligned worksheets for each classroom transformation. Distribute them around your room. Give each child a recording sheet. Explain to students that they will become that career (scientists, race car drivers, cooks, etc.) and will need to complete all ten challenges around the room! They have to find all ten challenges you've left hidden around the classroom and find the answers to each one. They use the recording sheet to mark off each challenge as they go.

    There is ALSO an additional writing activity where students scan the QR codes on each poster and find out fun facts about whatever career they are completing that day! This math activity is perfect for fifth graders. It aligns with common core standards.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): 

    Can I edit this?

    YES! This comes with 3 versions: 1 set of pre-made challenges that are no-prep for you, 1 set of my challenges that are editable in case you want to change a few pages/questions, and 1 set of blank editable challenges if you want to add your own content. This means you could use this room transformation to teach any skill you’d like using the blank editable version!

    Will a classroom transformation cost me a lot of money?

    NO! Classroom transformations, or themed-days, do not have to cost you a fortune to complete. In fact, you can use ONLY what’s included in this purchase and have a great day with your students! Decor, posters, the academic challenges, and more extras are included so you have more than enough to set the scene. You do not need to spend extra money! There is more than enough for you to transform your classroom without spending any additional money. There is a shopping guide included for teachers who’d like to add additional supplies but that is completely optional.

    How long will this take to set up?

    It depends! Are you going to use all of the decorations provided or just a few? Are you going to buy additional decorations or just what’s included? You could set this room transformation up in as little as 10 minutes with just a few included posters printed out and put on the walls. There are also teachers who like to spend a few hours decorating their rooms. There’s no wrong answer and I’ve done both! Students LOVE a change from the normal environment and that's what makes a room transformation special--not how many hours you spend setting it up.

    Personally, I like to set aside about 30 minutes before the school day starts to set up my room. Whatever I get done in that time period is what my students get to enjoy. This works perfectly for me–do whatever works best for your classroom! The important thing to remember is anything different from a “normal” day is going to be SO much fun for your students and they will love it no matter how much effort you put into decorating.

    How long will it take my students to complete the room transformation?

    • If you are completing a math room transformation, I would estimate 1-2 hours.
    • If you are completing a reading room transformation, I would estimate about 2-3 hours.
    • If you are combining a math and reading room transformation together, I would allow several hours for students to complete the room transformation.

    ***Please note that these time frames will vary depending on: how many students you have, how quickly they work, what grade level you teach, ability levels, working in partners/groups/individually, etc.***

    Can I do a room transformation in a shorter amount of time?

    These room transformations are made to be flexible! If you only have 30 minutes to an hour to complete the room transformation, you’re able to use this resource! I include 10 challenges in each room transformation for students to complete. You could easily have students complete 5 (or any number you’d like) of the challenges to make it work for your time period. You can also have students work independently or in groups to make things go quicker or slower.

    Can students complete less than 10 challenges?

    Absolutely! Have students complete however many you think are appropriate for your classroom.

    When do you recommend doing a room transformation?

    The best time to complete a room transformation is at the end of a unit! When you’ve finished a skill and want to provide a fun, informal assessment of what students have learned, this is the perfect activity to pull out! I also love to do room transformations before holidays and on Friday afternoons as a reward for working hard all week.

    How do you check student papers during a room transformation?

    Students need to come see you to be checked after each academic challenge they complete. To help ease the number of papers you need to check, I suggest trying one of the following ideas:

    • having a few answer keys available for students to check themselves
    • have early finishers help you check other students’ papers
    • have students work in small groups or partners (fewer papers to check and students can assist one another)
    • check students after every 2 challenges instead of after every challenge
    • invite volunteers in on your room transformation day to help
    • put challenges together in a packet for easy checking

    Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
    Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
    Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
    A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume.
    A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using 𝘯 unit cubes is said to have a volume of 𝘯 cubic units.
