BACK TO SCHOOL - sites for creating great classroom displays

Mrs Pancake

Mrs Pancake has the loveliest visuals. This site is great for themed alphabets, and numerals, letters and numbers for making banners, posters, calendars and cute ideas for things to make and do.

Teachers Pet is a relatively new and growing site packed with fantastic resources from displays to worksheet and all sorts of teachers support.   I printed out this lovely visual timetable snake (below) last year.  Every morning my helper for the day would stick on the 'activities' in the order they would take place.  A few o the children found our 'what will we do today' snake very reassuring.  We included ordinal number labels later on in the year.

Communication 4 All is choc block full of gorgeous display materials to print, including borders and posters.  I find something new everytime I look.  The powerpoint displays are amazing.

Twinkl is another great site full of displays, photos, games and worksheet.  I give each child an alphabet strip at the beginning of the year.

Enjoy and happy decorating!
