After the festivities of Thanksgiving are over, it’s immediately time to move into the winter holiday season. No matter what holidays your students celebrate, winter is a time for cheer and coming together. Your students are learning about the differences between the seasons and holidays during the year and shifting your classroom decor can help your students engage better with their learning environment. The holidays are also an excellent opportunity to learn about the unique celebrations of your students.
Your classroom door is an easy place to neglect when you’re decorating, but you should pay special attention to this area. This is the entrance to your classroom. When your students come into school each morning, the door is the first impression they get of the coming school day. If you use cut-out packs with multiple pieces, you can also use any extra pieces for craft projects or lessons with the kids.
Here are some of our favorite examples of winter classroom door decorations and how other teachers have used them:
