If you are a teacher, then you probably decorate your classroom to make it inviting and entertaining for your students. You want to create an environment that makes students want to learn. Classroom displays can be simple or elaborate and everything in between, depending on your creativity, resources and budget. The best approach is to come up with a theme and incorporate it into all aspects of the classroom throughout the year.

Computer Lab Tiki Hut
Transform the computer area in your classroom into a tiki hut. To do this, simply push together four desks so that they form a square. You can set up one computer on each desk. In the centre of the four desks slip an old patio umbrella. Then, cover the umbrella with grass skirts or tiki hut straw covering. You can glue this on in patches. When students use the computers, they will feel as if they have been transported to a beach and a tropical environment.
Reading Corner Display
Create a reading corner in your classroom that features a display of books which encourages students to sit down and read a good book. If you want to continue the beach theme, then provide plastic sand buckets in the reading area. Roll up a towel in each bucket. Tell students that when they want to read, they should fill their bucket with books, find a spot in the reading corner, spread their towel and read their books. You can extend this idea to other themes. Create a "forest" reading corner by providing tree stumps and rocks for your students to sit on. Allow students to earn "leaves" for each book they read. They can write their names on synthetic leaves, and you can paste them on a tree cut out of art paper.The tree can be attached to a wall in the reading corner.
Teach your children proper sanitation through a display at your classroom's sink. You can include a poster that shows them how to wash their hands. Another idea is a poster that displays a poem or song that you teach them. You can sing or say the song or poem before you go to lunch. Set up your sink area with a variety of soaps and cloth towels. You also can use this area to teach about environmentally beneficial ways to conserve water.
