1. Brighten up your space

Welcome the changing of the seasons with a new door or bulletin board design. It’s one of the simpler ways to make your classroom stand out from the rest, and it helps set the tone every time your students walk in. (And it’s sure to add a little spring in their step, too.)

This cheerful design was made by the creative mind of @misscraftymathteacher, a high school math teacher dedicated to all things that make learning fun and engaging.

You can pin these posters all around your classroom in three different colors to match your new spring theme — all free and ready for you to download and print.

5. Springtime coloring activity

Our creative coloring books provide fun and cheerful activities for students to work on. They’re great to hand out during downtime after tests and quizzes, or when students are getting anxious around holidays and breaks. And they even double as engaging math lessons!

You could even let students hang their finished works of art around the classroom (next to your calculator posters) for an additional pop of color.
