Tips for Classroom Decorations
Not sure where to begin or hoping to change things up this school year? Here are a few tips for classroom decorations from the teachers on the Teach Starter team!
- Make it welcoming. Set up a welcome sign with your students’ names like our cute and bright fish themed sign that you can download and customize or a space-themed welcome sign with name tags that match.
- Never miss one of your students’ birthdays. Not only is this easy decor that can be set up and kept up all year long, but it will make your students feel valued. Use a bright birthday chart to display all the students’ birthdays.
- Use posters to cut decorating time. Positivity posters are simple to hang up and can help you create a positive environment without a lot of effort.
- Let your personality shine in your classroom decor. The things that made you passionate about teaching kids are often your very best tools in the classroom. Floored by flamingos? Wild about Mo Willems? Show your passion in the classroom, and you’ll see those little light switches flip in your students’ brains as they see what it is they love about the topics that have made you so passionate.
