Marquee Classroom Theme Ideas

Are you thinking of having a marquee classroom theme this year?  No one can resist the brightly lit letters that almost seem to flash and blink. A marquee theme gives you a feeling of anticipation of something exciting. You are here for something great, a new release of the latest knowledge that will blow your mind. Marquee headers and posters are guaranteed to get your students' attention and set the tone for anticipating the next new topic.

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

Marquee Classroom Bulletin Board: Lit Learners. Lightbulbs fit in perfectly with this flashy theme. They are cutouts. The border is also full of lightbulbs.

I love what this teacher did to these standing marquee letters. She bought the plain letters for 'READ' and added decorative paper to the back of each letter for them to pop even more. She created this look for her classroom library.


Make your own bulletin boards. This one was created for Teacher Appreciation Week. It includes popcorn, a 'NOW FEATURING' marquee header, and film accents.

This take home folder center was created with marquee letters, arrow and star accents, and marquee bordered paper. The pocket chart below used these marquee labels

A blank schedule chart with marquee letters for the heading and a marquee star border that was cut to fit the top of the chart.

Marquee Classroom hooks for hanging up charts and providing easy access to other things that can be hanged.

Make your classroom bulletin boards dazzle with marquee borders in different colors. 

Marquee magnetic stars for a magnetic whitboard display. There are also magnetic borders in this theme.

You've got to have popcorn cut-outs! I also like the idea of popcorn erasers on pencils.

If you have decor for a Hollywood theme, they can be used for a marquee theme too, if they have the right lettering.

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!
