As teachers, we want to create the best environment possible to foster and support learning for our students. Wow your students on their first day back to school with our back-to-school door ideas.
Your classroom door can make a fantastic first impression if you're not meeting your new students before the first day of school.
Whether you are a first-year teacher or a seasoned educational professional, a warm and fun display will help break the ice with your students.
Messages have power and can inspire people at specific points in their life. Consider putting a message on your door that reminds the students of their magnificence.
An interactive door will give the students a fun way to connect with you. Very similar to having a message, you could challenge your students to show behavior that may be lacking in the school. It can be being kind, sharing, or showing cooperation when working in groups.
Many counsellors have social-emotional learning lessons that would make great decorative doors.
Make your door a gateway for Narnia or a popular video game. Younger kids will enjoy doors that look like their favorite animals.
Add an exciting and lesser-known fact about the animal for a teachable moment. A door that expresses your fondness or love for them no matter what can go a long way.
When a student sees your door, it helps set the tone for the school year and can affect how they view your classroom. For older students, the door can be a connection for them to reach out to you for conversation or help.
