The Best Holiday Decor and Books for Your Classroom

The Best Holiday Decor and Books for Your Classroom

The holiday season is here! Bring a little bit of winter cheer into your classroom with these decor ideas and coordinating books that are perfect for the winter months and holidays. 

Winter Seasonal Decor

Whether you've got the means to make a decorative fireplace in your classroom or not, our seasonal winter decor will help make your classroom feel cozy and bright. Add some winter touches from our 3D Pop Year-Round Seasonal Accents Bulletin Board and our Seasonal Accents 10" Designer Cut-Outs to make any wall holiday ready, or hang our Snowflakes 6" Designer Cut-Outs from the ceiling with some fishing line to transform your space into a snowy, winter wonderland!

A simple addition of a border, like our Snowflakes EZ Border, can make any bulletin board or white board winter-ready! Pair it with our Ombre Turquoise Scallops EZ Border for an extra splash of color that can be layered with seasonal borders year-round! Our turquoise chart in our Bright Colors Incentive Variety Charts Convenience Pack offers a versatile and practical color-coordinating way to track classroom lessons throughout the season as well. 

Making Classroom Staples Seasonal

Especially so close to the winter break, who has time to make over their entire classroom? Our decor items are designed to be appropriate tools for classroom use year-round, like our Stick Kids Giant Banners (Jumbo Jessie pictured above and Jumbo Riley below) and our charts (Core Decor Classroom Essentials 6-Chart Convenience Pack above and Messy Dots on Black Calendar Chart below). However, with a little imagination and some items from our seasonal decor collections, you can freshen up these classroom staples for every occasion!

Jumbo Jessie and Jumbo Riley are both wearing a scarf made from Turquoise Bold Stripes EZ Border and hats trimmed with our Loop-de-Loop EZ Border. Jumbo Jessie is holding a candy cane from our 3D Pop Year-Round Seasonal Accents Bulletin Board and is accompanied by one of our Snowflakes 6" Designer Cut-Outs.

Jumbo Riley is wishing all December birthdays a Happy Birthday with our Core Decor Bubble Letters Designer Letters, our Cupcakes 10" Jumbo Designer Cut-Outs, and our Snowflakes Calendar Days. Jumbo Riley is also enjoying a wintery wall thanks to our Year-Round Seasonal Accents Bulletin Board

Holiday and Seasonal Books

Winter is the perfect time to encourage students to stay inside and keep warm by curling up with a good book! Our Holiday Readers Variety Pack has a story to teach young readers about each holiday you may celebrate or acknowledge throughout the school year, like Christmas or Chanukah. 


Student Stocking Stuffers

Our Financial Literacy with Cat & Dog Books, as well as all of our Learn to Read books, make fantastic stocking stuffers both in and out of the classroom. Quick, light-weight reads make them easy to place in stockings. Pair them with some of our many stickers collections, like our Snowflake Rewards Stickers, and our Read Incentive Card, which can double as a bookmark, for a gift sure to encourage even the most reluctant reader!

Incorporate Winter Fun with This Free Activity

Whether you want your students' artwork to hang around the classroom or fill a bulletin board like the one pictured above, having them follow the instructions below and create snowflake designs that are uniquely their own is a fantastic creative endeavor for the winter season. Not only does it lend them practice building critical fine motor skills but it also provides an opportunity for them to practice reading and following instructions. Get the free download here
