What can we put into showcasing Black History Month through Classroom Door Decor Ideas? For classroom doors to be attractive and at the same time able to send the message that you want, they must appeal to a child considering the following factors:
Primary colors red, yellow, and blue, and secondary colors green, orange, and purple are more attractive to them than light shades of pink and beige or neutral shades of gray and brown.
TeckWrap has lots of vivid-colored, high-quality craft vinyl that can make your doors extra attractive this Black History Month!
If they like a nursery rhyme they’ve been singing for years, they’ll go for it more than the new one you introduce. People celebrate Black History Month to highlight the accomplishments and contributions of historical Black Americans that have given hope to people experiencing discrimination and racial injustices.
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." Martin Luther King, Jr. changed history when he awakened the need for social reform as he led the movement to end Black Americans’ woes with racial injustices and prejudice. Putting Martin Luther King, Jr.'s poster on your door to remind students what he had contributed to the present situation of Black Americans is enlightening and informative.
This classroom door decoration can also be a mini bulletin board that features important figures that have helped change how the world accepts Black Americans.
Hang by the door a mini inspirational women bulletin board. This tribute door for Ruby Bridges, another one of the many great Black Americans who have helped change the history of their people.
A Ruby Bridges Black History Month Door will not only introduce this great woman to those who still don’t know her but also will serve as a reminder that hope is never lost. Who would have known that a six-year-old girl would build the future of elementary school integration in the South in 1960 when she advanced the cause of civil rights?
Ruby Bridges was the first Black student to be integrated into an all-white elementary school. This is not only for Black History Month, but this book can be one of the effective classroom ideas to reinforce the love for reading to your students ages 2-8. You may also feature great writers to relate English Language Arts (ELA) to your Black History Month Celebration. Let your students showcase creativity by crafting their portraits on your Black History Month door.
Grab some magazines, old photos, craft vinyl, colored papers, or any material you want to add to the collage. Student Names Bulletin Boards and Classroom Door Decorations
