Teacher Tip: Classroom Decor

Decorating a Classroom

Look at the quilt.  The quilt absorbs sounds, especially in acoustically hard surfaces.

Relaxing blues, greens, and whites.

dec341

How about lamps?

dec442

Fabric.   Child-level counters. 

dec543

Materials labeled in color coordinated baskets.  Plants.

dec644

More labels.  Utilizing every space–see the clothespins on the louvered vent?

dec745

More lamps.  An uncluttered desk to work. 

Inspired?  This classroom is a dream.  The colors are soft and relaxing and the children are relaxed and learning. 

Tip:  Are you ready to make changes in your classroom?  Plan, implement small changes, and complete your classroom makeover during summer. 

Can’t wait?  Try to hold off until your next workday or weekend.

More decorating tips coming…. .

  2. I LOVE this classroom! Any suggestions for setting up a school area for home school when you don’t have a designated room?

  3. Beautiful! I LOVE this classroom!!! 🙂

    • Hi,
      Aren’t quiet, calm spaces better for children? This teacher knows what she’s doing in this classroom
      I’d love to have images from your classroom of anything you think would be helpful.

      Anytime you’d like to contribute tips, since you are an autism teacher, let me know.
      Your experience will help other teachers.
      Thanksm

  4. Where did you get your white storage unit with the green & blue cube baskets? Ive been wanting one of these for a long time in mu classroom. Thank you!

    • Hi Bre,
      The cube baskets came from Target, I believe. You can find them about anywhere these days-Michael’s, Lowes, Target, Ikea.
      Thanks for asking. Send me pictures of your classroom and I’ll post them.
      Thanks,
      Terri
