Well, this one depends on the age group, but I firmly believe some fun door streamers bring joy into the classroom! These don’t only have to be used at the door. You can use these as wall decorations or cut them short to use as a skirt around your desk.

Rugs are absolutely a must. They bring a cozy, homey feel to the room instead of those white floors that reach to the white walls and white ceilings. These are a great addition to reading areas, the front of the classroom, or around your desk.

Lastly, the details!

Creating the perfect classroom aesthetic means taking care of everything down to the details. This means the small things like student welcome baggies, table set up, and desks. Here are some ideas!
