Decorating one's classroom is a thing of past. The latest 'in' thing is decorating its door. Decorating the classroom prevents you from giving a personal touch to your room, as you have to follow a school protocol.
All you can do is paste some scientific or mathematical charts here and there, post the pictures of some famous people, and adorn the walls with cliché quotes. How boring! What if you were allowed to paste your own photograph with your pet dog Samuel? Sounds bright, ain't it? So, here is your chance to add that missing personal touch.
You can use some classroom door decoration ideas and decorate it in numerous interesting ways that can appeal to students as well as passersby.
Symbolize different hobbies and activities. For example, if a student has read a new book, he will post the symbol of a book with its name and date. At the end of the month, the class can count how many activities they have performed.
Choose a Theme
Choose a theme every month, e.g., geometry, English, poetry, etc. and paste the items related to that theme. You can also post riddles and puzzles based on that theme. If possible, implement the theme for decorating the room as well.
Answer a Question
Children are inquisitive by nature, and they have hundreds of questions about the universe. Ask them to put them on the door. You can encourage the students to find the answers themselves, or you can choose free-time to answer them.
Lastly, put all your creativity in and personalize the door the way you want. Do not hesitate to paste your photograph. This can provide assurance and comfort, if your students are particularly young, and also help the older students, who have changed classes, to find you easily.
Classroom door decoration allows you to create your own style and sets you apart from the rest. Remember, the door gives an idea to the visitor about what to expect inside. So, your decorating styles should be in sync with the rest of the room.
