The summer is flying by, and before we know it, it will be time for another school year! Invite your kids back for a fun year with lots of classroom decor to help your little ones feel comfortable, and excited about the year ahead! A great classroom environment will spark creativity and help the kids gear up for all the new things they will learn this year.
Add COLOR in the classroom.
What better way to kick off a new school year than a colorful room and a rainbow theme! This Birthday Pocket Chart is the perfect and fun addition to any classroom!
Decorate your Door.
A simple WELCOME sign in a rainbow of colors is a fun and inviting way to enter a classroom.
Decorate with their names.
You and your kids will be getting to know each other, so it’s important to include your students’ names as a part of the classroom decor! Make them into signs and they will feel welcome seeing their name on the wall, or on the door.
Keep it simple.
Don’t put too much on your walls. It’s best to keep it simple, and not overwhelm the kids in the first weeks. Let the children help you decorate your walls with their own projects as the days go on. An “About Me” art project from each student is an example of great wall decor.
Set up an art table.
Organize your art supply area by color! Keep a separate jar or container for red, orange, yellow etc.
Set up a sensory table.
Pom Poms or dyed rainbow rice and scoops are fun and colorful. This simple sensory activity is great to start off the school year!
Create a reading corner.
A fun reading corner with a rainbow of colors (Pillows, bookshelves, etc.) will be an inviting spot for the kids to cuddle up with a good book!
There are so many options when it comes to classroom decor, but it’s best to keep it simple, fun and colorful! Your kids will feel comfortable, your classroom will be inviting, and your school year will be off to a great start!
