Classrooms that look cold and impersonal will not encourage students to feel welcome. If students feel unwelcome and uncomfortable, they are not going to want to be in the classroom. Students who do not want to be in classroom will act out in different ways and make discipline difficult. I’m not saying that a festive classroom will make discipline problems a thing of the past, just that classroom decorations can go a long way towards classroom morale for the students as well as the teacher. More than that, class decorations can help establish and keep track of the classroom events, classroom activities, and classroom goals, as established by the teacher and the students. There are a couple of ways to get decorations that fit your needs, your class’s needs, your personality, and the goals you are trying to reach inside your classroom.
The first way to get decorations is to have the students make them. Snowflakes to hang from the ceiling in the winter. Snowflakes are easy and fun, and the occasional use of glitter will really liven the place up. In fall, you can use construction paper to have fun with the changing colors. In the spring, you can color and hang up pictures of growing trees and blossoming flowers. There are also stores that sell decorations. For example, you can get brightly colored and laminated posters that encourage reading, writing, and learning. A good combination of the two is the best way to go. Many stores sell their items at a discounted rate to teachers in order to support local schools.
You can find all the back to school supplies you need through online stores.
