Emoji Classroom Decor and More

Emoji Classroom Decor

Emojis have really taken on a life of their own in the classroom. Emoji classroom decor is now a popular choice for teachers needing a change from the traditional themes.  Everyone has a favorite emoji, so why not have silly cute yellow faces all around your students. They make great rewards for student behavior or student progress. Aside from the suggestions below, you can customize your own emoji themed back to school stuff for your classroom with editable printables

Dr. Seuss Classroom Decor

Dr. Seuss is and always will be a classic theme for classrooms that will never go out of style. It just fills the room with an aura of silliness, playfulness and laughter. I particularly like anything that goes with the 'Oh The Places You'll Go' book because it is such a positive message for young learners. I feel that the value that students are getting out of this theme is an environment that encourages a love for books and reading. Below is my Amazon compilation of Dr. Seuss Classroom Decor posters, wall decals and other cute stuff.

I love to find awesome classroom decor ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commission for purchases using my links. Learn more. The ideas and paid links below are based on Amazon finds that are great for making a Seuss classroom.

This classroom has the Dr. Seuss Alphabet posters (#ad) at the top, Dr. Seuss classroom calendar (#ad), and truffula trees.

A Seuss classroom reading corner with a Reading is Fun banner (#ad).

Dr. Seaus teacher desk makeover using a wall decal (#ad).


Dr. Seuss quotes are really popular in popular for classroom posters and banners. The motivating quotes are deep yet simple enough for children to understand.



A reading corner...


Use red and aqua blue storage bins (#ad) or an aqua bookshelf.

Use paper lantern balloons for an 'Oh the Places You'll Go' classroom theme.

Are you in the mood for some Seuss this year?

Editable Classroom Labels in different themes

Editable Classroom Labels in popular themes

Are you looking for smaller classroom labels that are editable? This bunch of labels come in many themes such as owls, superhero, space, monsters, ocean, rock n roll, pirates, Hollywood, dinosaur, circus, etc. Go crazy and label everything in sight! They were sized to fit onto these book bins below but can also be used for containers, drawers, cabinets, shelves, books, mail boxes, student trays and more. See them all on TpT here.

I highly recommend laminating tham after printing so that they'll last much longer. Each label is 12.5cm x 6cm or 5" x 2.4". Which theme will you be using this year? I'll be adding more theme sets to this post as I make them. If you need a theme that's unique and you cant find it anywhere, just let me know in the comments below and I'll be happy to make it for you!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
