Chalkboard Classroom Decor and Ideas

Chalkboard classroom decor is super trendy right now because, well, it’s cute! I think teachers love it so much because it combines the bright colors of today’s classrooms with the nostalgic black chalkboard look of when you when you think of a traditional classroom of the past.


Since it’s such a popular classroom theme, it was easy to find everything you need in this fun style so everything matches! I’ve compiled a big list to help you decorate! Some links are affiliate links which means I make commission from purchases made through the links that I use to upkeep my blog and bring you fun ideas! πŸ™‚





First things first, a Welcome Pennant for your bulletin board to welcome your new students!







I think that pennant would look really cute on a bright neon color background of fadeless bulletin board paper or fabric and cute chalkboard borders like these. I love the shape of them!





I’ve also started to love straight edge borders because I love doubling them with the typical wavy edged border which makes a really cute look.





These chalkboard bulletin board letters are so cute to go along with it.






This fadeless chalkboard bulletin board paper is just the cutest to make a chalkboard background for your boards. So important that it’s fadeless, too, since it’s so dark. I love it!






This awning also matches and is so darn cute. I love the awning trend to really make bulletin boards pop. So fun! Make sure the length is the same as your board though!







These chalkboard magnetic letters are a lot like the above letters but magnets! That makes it really easy to stick on your whiteboard to spell out “MATH” and “READING” or “OBJECTIVES” or even “CALENDAR.”








Speaking of calendar, this chalkboard calendar set is really adorable.









This Months of the Year poster is cute to add to your calendar area too.










Here’s a matching Days of the Week poster as well.










I also recommend this Place Value Pocket Chart for your calendar time to count the number of days in school each day as well as practice building other numbers.








For a normal 10 pocket chart, this chalkboard pocket chart is really adorable.









I’m also obsessed with this black polka dots storage pocket chart which you can use for a lot of different things. Here’s a fun real example of it being used to hold alphabet letter cards:

How to Organize Phonics Pocket Chart Centers








Here’s a cute 10 Pocket File Storage Pocket Chart in the theme as well! I love these types of charts for paperclipping copies by day and subject to help me copy ahead and be organized.









For more organization fun, I like these chalkboard supply labelsΒ too!








You could also use these chalkboard name tags to make your own labels for buckets and bins or use them to put kids’ names on cubbies.







I personally like these name plates for labeling cubbies or desks to have the writing lines.







I also really like this chalkboard birthdays bulletin board set to put all your students’ birthdays up in the classroom.








This classroom jobs set is also great for setting up your system. Here’s a giant list of classroom jobs, too, for ideas of what to have your kids help with.









Having a job means also following the classroom rules so this rules poser would be cute right next to the job chart.










Here’s a cute incentive poster to also track behavior or reading or whatever you want to give your kids a sticker for!









Here’s a pack of stickers to use for the chart in the theme.









The stickers also fit in these incentive charts you can give to each individual student (to keep themselves or hang on the wall to track something toward a goal or reward).









There’s also a pack of essential classroom posters in the chalkboard theme you could use instead.










I don’t use library pockets a lot but I know a ton of teachers do and these are adorable so I wanted to include them. They can make cute, useful displays.









These chalkboard stars are great to add to any display to add more style.









I also like these chalkboard accents to create any type of display you want.









You can also hang inspirational posters around the classroom to keep up your theme with motivating sayings.








If you really want to go all out, you can change your alphabet to a chalkboard alphabet!









There’s also a chalkboard cursive alphabet if you want cursive writing instead.








Okay, this chalkboard notes set is too cute to not put on the list! I go through a lot of little notes and this set is adorable.








Another stationary item are these adorable Welcome post cards to send to your students before school starts to ease some nerves. What a cute introduction to your theme as well!




I hope you loved this compilation of chalkboard classroom decor. I also have this for a Superhero Classroom theme and am working on more for more themes. I’ll be adding links to them in my Giant List of Classroom Themes post so keep checking that to see them as I make them!
