What’s Your Classroom Style? Share and You Could Win!

How would you describe your classroom style? Colorful and creative? Understated and ultra organized? Yard-sale-inspired and a teensy bit messy?

Our friends at Carson-Dellosa have unveiled a whole new line of classroom decor items by teacher and decorator Melanie Ralbusky. Vote for your favorite design—Just Teach, Twinkle Twinkle You’re a Star, or Industrial Chic—and you could win $150 of classroom products. Enter here. Hurry, the contest ends on January 12!


Plus, if you share your own description of your classroom style here on the blog, we’ll randomly select one teacher to win a teacher prize pack of books valued at $100. Submit your comment by January 24, 2018, to be included in our drawing.


Here are some other fun and stylish options for you as you settle into 2018:


Put a fresh twist on your school or class yearbook this year with Shutterfly. You’ll find lots of options, fast delivery, and prices starting at $8. Easy Idea Pages and Smart Autofill make getting started super simple. Take a look here.


Here’s an amazingly useful (and free!) app from Talking Points. On your phone or computer, when you message students’ families in English they can receive the message in one of 20 languages—Chinese, Farsi, Somali, Spanish, Vietnamese, and more. How cool! Get started.

Hmmm, this all makes me think about what my office decor style is. I think it could be described “cozy clutter,” but my co-workers might disagree with that….


PS: Don’t forget, the Carson-Dellosa sweepstakes ends on Friday, so enter now.

  1. Teensy bit cluttered but I am working on it. But I think basically it’s colorful and comfy for the kiddos. Wish it had more storage but I think we all feel that way

  2. My classroom is creative and full of loose parts and adventure on every shelf. We love making messes! Would love more materials and storage, but who wouldn’t.

  3. I was laughing at the options and I am the Webster “Definition” of Yard Sale. I teach first grade for a non profit and funds are limited for supplies and salaries. I have a tepee made from left over PVC pipe and an old Black curtain. The kids love it. I have take home book bags made from thrift store material scraps. Our caring coins collection box which is our community service project is a recycled almond milk bottle. We have so much fun with all these repurposed items. My VIP desk is an awesome find of an old school desk with a drawer underneath that I was able to get for almost nothing and lots of elbow grease.
    To the creativity in all of us to make the most out of what we have. Bless all my fellow teachers out there.
    HUG the day,
    p.s. I am laughing out loud now as I picture my classroom

  4. My classroom is a little bit cluttered. It is inviting and colorful too.The principal told me today we are going to get new furniture. Hooray. A great time to throw old all the old!

  5. My classroom theme is nautical. Our town is positioned near a very large lake. The bright blue and red colors are very cheery. I am mostly organized, but I do have two small areas that always seem to stay cluttered.

  6. I’m a bit cluttered but fun. I have had a fish theme for many years where I put up blue plastic like you wrap Easter baskets in, on the windows and hung fish at the entrance so that it seemed that you were walking into the ocean. So I try to be fun and creative
