I know a push pin set may not be what you were expecting to see on a list of classroom decor ideas, but displaying flyers, posters, signs, and student work is a wonderful and easy way to decorate your classroom. The variety of shapes and neutral tones will add just the right touch to your classroom decor.

Another excellent decor idea is using these bulletin board tiles. They can serve both aesthetic and functional purposes. They can be used for showcasing student work, posting announcements, and creating a dynamic display of learning materials.

If you’ve heard of this bulletin board paper, then I’m not sure there is anything else I can add to the conversation. If you haven’t, then know that it makes your life way easier. It doesn’t fade. It doesn’t tear. You can use dry-erase markers on it. And best of all: it comes in the cutest designs!

Call me old school, but I just think border paper is a must-have for your bulletin boards. This variety pack is wonderful because you can quickly change up things just by changing out your border! I love these calming colors!

With these middle school classroom decor ideas, you have some easy options to create a space that is not just aesthetically pleasing but also functional, motivating, and engaging. Remember, your classroom decor is a reflection of the unique learning community you cultivate with your students. It sets the tone for learning, influences how students feel, and can even impact their performance.
