My no-sew easy to move "safety-curtain" for my classroom door. It is a dowel rod and command hooks spray painted with oil rubbed bronze and drawer pulls hot glued to the ends. A no-sew curtain long enough to cover the door and then some is draped over the rod so the pattern shows from the outside too. Then I rolled up the material and then used Velcro to attach the ribbons. Now I can quickly cover my classroom door window if needed.

I love the desk arrangement in this classroom. Open group concept. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board.
