School Classroom Decorating Ideas

Need some pizazz for your classroom? Below are a few decorating ideas to turn your average classroom into an exciting and fun room for your students to learn!

Classroom Bulletin Boards

Bulletin Boards are the focal point in your classroom. Give your bulletin boards some pizzaz this year by following a few simple guidelines:

1. Plan ahead - Don't wait until the night before to throw something together! Make a plan for your bulletin board for the entire school year. Order any supplies you will need a month in advance.

2. Update Often - To keep students interested, change your bulletin board about once a month.

3. Coordinate Classroom Themes. - Create bulletin boards that coordinate with a subject your students are studing, upcoming holiday or current season. (Oceans, Christmas, Winter)

4. Keep Records - If your bulletin board was a success, keep a record or take a picture of the bulletin board. Next year, you can use the same idea!

    Under the Sea Posters

    Create a Reading Center by making a hut or loft in one corner of your classroom. If that's not possible, just set aside a specific section of the room for a reading center. Create a theme for the center. (for example jungle, beach, under the sea) Theme scene setters and posters are great for decorating sections of your room into a specific theme. They are very inexpensive and easy to put up. Change the theme often...coordinate with other classroom themes or a holiday. Have books available that are related to the theme of the center.
