Happy Friday, Educators!
As the summer days begin to pass more quickly than you would probably like, a lot of us start brainstorming for the new school year. One of the first things many of us like to do is think about our door décor. Decorating your classroom door is “fun” for many of us (I know I love thinking about all of the creative possibilities), but it is so much more than that. Your door is the first thing your students will see when they enter your room. It can build community. It can show your personality. It can be incorporated into your daily routine. The possibilities are endless! This Friday, I am showcasing some of my favorite ideas for classroom door décor. Hopefully these ideas will get your creative juices flowing to come up with your own “fun idea” for the Fall!
Door Décor Rule #1: Make it personal. Your door is a place where you can really build community in your classroom. Students love to see their name, photo, etc. included in a classroom door display. Here are some of my favorites from around the web:
Door Décor Rule #2: Make it you. The beginning of the year is as much a time to get to know your students as it is a time for them to get to know you. Show off your personality! Here are some fun ideas:
Door Décor Rule #3: Make it work for your classroom.
I hope this post encouraged you to start thinking about your own classroom door décor. Please feel free to share all of your own awesome ideas and finished products with me in the comments below.
