My previous post was all about DIY decorating your classroom on a budget. If you missed it, click here to catch up. I tackled the big items like your walls and covering ugly surfaces with pretty Contact paper. Now it’s time for the small touches that can help in personalizing your classroom. Showcase Your Interests with Custom Touches
Believe it or not, your students like to learn about you. I teach middle school and even those older kiddos like to learn what interests their teachers have outside of the classroom. I am a Disney fanatic, in case you haven’t guessed by all the Disney crafts I post. So, I am infusing little touches of Disney into my classroom in a way that doesn’t detract from my white/black with pink color scheme.
I wanted to incorporate some quotes in my room, and I wanted them to be relatable for the students. So, I thought what better way to ensure the quotes are relatable than to use Disney as a source. I created these with PowerPoint.

I continued the Disney influence with my new literary device posters.

Customize your Organization
If you are like me, you have a ton of binders on the shelf in your classroom. I get tired of looking at the plain white covers, as I pull them down from the shelf. So I created some cute covers on Canva.com.
I hope you enjoy personalizing your classroom with these touches as much as I enjoyed making them.
