If you’re a teacher who’s up to date with all things Instagram, you would have used it at least once for some classroom inspiration. And why wouldn’t you, with all the wonderful teachers out there sharing their creative sides?

For the 21st century teacher, Instagram is an invaluable ideas hub. It’s providing new and experienced teachers alike with not only a wonderful support network, but also an endless stream of brilliant motivation.

If you’re still stuck for inspiration for 2019, we’ve scoured the hashtags and found what’s sure to be the hottest trend of the year. Take a look at our top 10 posts for classroom inspiration using the bright, happy theme of Rainbow!

Colourful Classroom Inspiration – the Year of the Rainbow

1. Rainbow Storage

Every classroom needs storage! Give your students some motivation to keep things neat and tidy. Get rid of clutter and mess with these colourful storage boxes of all shapes and sizes!

2. Rainbow Guided Reading

Every child will be inspired to read under the rainbow! Light up your room with this wonderful Guided Reading inspired rainbow lamp.

3. Rainbow Classroom Decorations

Let loose your creative streak with this tassel chain by this inspired teacher. We wish the puppy could come to the classroom too!

4. Rainbow Classroom Inspiration for Spelling Practice

What a wonderfully colourful idea from this savvy teacher. These stamps could be used for so many things, from a spelling activity to decorating book covers and labelling boxes and folders!

5. Rainbow Math of a Different Kind!

These rainbow coloured foam mats make an amazing hundreds board! The added bonus is that you can add to the bottom once your students are ready to extend past 100.

6. Rainbow Door Decorating

Of course, we couldn’t go past this amazing rainbow classroom inspiration! The bright colours of our Hot Air Balloon Classroom Door Display really pop against the black backdrop used by this inspired teacher!

7. Rainbow Stamping Fun

What CAN’T you use these stamps for? From class bingo to art pieces, graphing activities to assessment coding – these glorious stamps are just so pleasing to look at!

8. Rainbow Classroom Stationery

Are you forever handing out whiteboard markers and crusty old dusters? Perhaps you’re using boxes of tissues each term to wipe down whiteboards with.

This creative teacher’s pompom hot glue hack makes for a vibrant classroom accessory that your students will love to use.

9. Rainbow Paper Chain

Strips of paper never looked so good! For classroom inspiration on a budget, look no further than this wonderful rainbow paper chain. Why not make it environmentally friendly and use up all those strips of card and scrap paper you may have lying around after art and craft lessons?

10. Rainbow Classroom Clock

Last but not least, this hack shows just how rainbow you can go! This plain clock has been given the ultimate make-over with pompoms and hot glue (maybe you have some left over after your whiteboard marker spruce up?).
