    I have always used the posters from the store. It has a place for me to put my name, grade, and class. I am a third grade teacher.

    How about cute Ellison die cut shapes in a theme and put kids names on door and a title? Like fish- What a great catch, or stars- Star students or apples- the apples of ms. ______'s eye......You get the drift..... ;)

    I did Fall into a New Year with leaves falling down the door. I had the kids write their names on the leaves. Last year I did Step into a New Year and had little feet for them to write their names on. I had the saying look like steps going down. I got lots of compliments on that one. good luck

    I have "Step into Grade 5" on my door right now. When the kids come on Tuesday, they will trace their footprint, then decorate with their name, etc.

    I just have smiley faces with the kids names on them. Then on the fancy stationary paper I typed up and printed out:
    Welcome!
    5th Grade
    Ms. Buren
    Room 403

    I also have one of the posters from the store but I put that one on the wall beside my door. I only bought it because it has a flamingo on it ;) Can't turn that down!

    Unfortunately, I can't put much decoration on my door. If you check out my website, under Browse our Classroom, you can see our door. On the outside I have a lamintated poster (bought for $1.99) that has my name and room number. Also is our large magnetic room number, and a sign for parents to visit the office before coming in. On the inside I post important information: tornado drill, fire drill, No Bullying sign, Special classes sign, and Morning Check List signs. This opens up the wall space around my door for decorations.

    For new ideas:
    Welcome to My Pad/Hop into our class- frogs with students names on them
    *Target has a Welcome To My Pad flag on sale for $12.99 right now.

    Fall Into Our Class-same as mbboss' idea

    Learn to Discover-with underwater theme (fish net, treasure chest, etc...) students as divers or fish
    *Wal-Mart has a "Books Are Treasures" banner on sale for $2.00 right now

    Hang Out In Our Class (Room)- Large tree, or vines with monkeys (students names) hanging from it

    We're Wild About Learning-With various wild animals (student names)

    Welcome To Our Pack- Pack of crayons
    *There is actually a bb set with this theme. You can buy the border and large posters to go with it.

    Hope this helps

    I have "First Grade is a Bushel of Fun". It is an apple tree with a basket of apples underneath it. There is a picture of it in my album. Choose "View Photos without signing in." You don't have to have an account to see them.

    I did a tree with brown butcher paper (twisted into trunk shape and stapled to a bulletin board ... you could do it on a door, too, and tape), leaves, and then the kids' names on apples with the title "We're a Great Bunch." A tree is nice, too, because you can change it with the seasons ... hang snowflakes from it in winter, autumn leaves, etc.

    How about..."In (name of class) We Have the 'Write' Stuff!" and then write each child's name on a pencil cut out.

    You could also do "Mrs. _________'s Sharp Bunch" with the pencil idea.

    Very cute and cheery classroom. Is this public or private?

    Cute doors

    You are lucky to be able to decorate your classroom doors! According to state law and our local fire code, nothing can be placed on the door or in the area within 3 feet of the door (left/right-top). As the AP, I had the unfortunate task of enforcing the code around campus (tough on those primary teachers, trust me), especially when the fire marshall had scheduled a visit.

    It's a public school --- unless you ask our state senators. They feel like our rural schools are operating like private schools and passed a law last year to close them. My colleagues and I spent our summer gathering signatures on a petition to repeal the law. We gathered enough signatures to put it on the ballot, so now it is up to the voters. In the meantime, the law goes into effect. It is a huge mess.
