Bulletin Board Inspiration
Bulletin boards are an amazing way to inspire your students! From displaying student work or inspirational messages, rotating lessons, showcasing word walls, learning about the seasons, and so much more!
Why is it important to decorate your classroom?
- Most teachers spend more time in their classroom than they do in their own home, so it's nice to make it as inviting as possible. You want you and your students to feel GOOD in their space. To be excited and happy to be there everyday! How does your favorite room in your house make you feel when you walk in? Your classroom is the same way! A place to inspire.
- Did you know that your environment can imprint on your emotions, mood, and desire to learn? You can easily use classroom decor to enhance your space without making it too stimulating. The balance of how much classroom decor will depend on you. Follow your instinct. The smallest details make the biggest difference!
- A study from the University of Salford states that attentively decorated classrooms can enhance learning by 25%!
- A good rule is to keep 20% of your walls bare. Classrooms should feel warm and inviting but not overcrowded.
- When your students walk into your room, they are subconsciously making a decision to engage or turn themselves off. Their environment and YOU are the first impressions everyday where they will decide this.
- Your classroom decor can be a great teaching tool!
The most important thing is if your classroom and learning space make YOU happy as a teacher, then that energy will transfer to your students as well. Whatever details (big or small) that create your happiness when you walk into your classroom everyday, your students will love as well!
