WallPops in a Classroom

Dry-Erase Map of the USA with State Capitals Classroom Decor Idea

The beginning of the school year is upon us and while some of us are still enjoying the last hurrahs of summer, many teachers are already hard at work decorating their classrooms! We salute the teachers for the amazing work that they do. We also love to see how creative they can be when bringing personality to a classroom space and adding engaging and educational decor to the room. We have so many awesome wall decals that are perfect for adding a little oomph and a lot of fun to the classroom setting! From functional dry-erase decals and maps, to alphabet sets and cute wall art kits that wont damage classroom walls, we have dynamite designs to kick the school year off in style.

A map is a timeless decor accent, especially well suited to a classroom wall. Our peel & stick map decals range from classy National Geographic designs to engaging kids maps with extra facts like state capitals and symbolic images from around the world. All of our map decals are dry-erase and come with a handy marker.

While kids practice letters, chart science experiment results, create schedules, and learn about keeping track of dates, it is helpful to have a reusable space to write on, erase and write again. Writing on the wall with a dry-erase decal also saves lots of paper and puts information in a central location. WallPops dry-erase decal collection includes chalk decals, message boards, and calendars.

Alphabet wall decals are a grand idea for an educational wall decor in a classroom, and can also be used to organize the room. Many of our ABC wall decal kits come with multiples of each letter so you can spell out things like “recycle” and “wash your hands”. For younger children, having the alphabet on the wall in plain view is a great learning tool as well as a decorative accent perfectly tailored to an elementary school room.

In addition to educational wall art, WallPops can provide a decorative and cheerful look for a classroom. Adding a tree decal to the wall, a colorful splash of butterfly wall stickers or a school of tropical fish can reinvent the look and feel of the room. Engaging kids imaginations with an artistic classroom is a great way to make learning fun!

Maps are a staple for interior design – they add character and sophistication to any room and are always a cause for conversation. Whether yours is curling at the edges, covered in push-pins from exotic vacations or sitting behind glass in a polished frame, WallPops has a variety of new geographical decorations for everyone.

Dorm Decor Extraordinaire!

Take Your Dorm Decor From Drab to Fab!

WallPops flower wall decals perfect for dorm decor

Moving in to a dorm at school is one of the most exciting, yet nerve-wracking endeavors of young adult life. This one room, often shared with another (sometimes a total stranger!) becomes your home away from home. This will be the spot where you come, exhausted, after a long day of learning, to study for your classes, where you wake up each morning, and get ready for every exciting day of your college life! Dorm rooms are classically stark, and come to you with heaps of rules, like no candles, no painting, no tacks or nails in the walls… they certainly don’t make it easy for you to make your room look enthralling!

However, don’t get discouraged by the bleak, white walls and utilitarian furniture. Your dorm room can be a truly fabulous space, one that expresses your personal style, welcomes you after a long day, and encourages your creative energy! Here are some tips for fabulous dorm decor that will create sizzle without breaking the bank or getting your RA into a frenzy.

1. Start With Your Bed

Dorm Decor ideas for privacy room panels by WallPops  Inspire your dorm decor with a peel and stick wall quote from WallPops

You will need a lot of sleep. Your head is going to be spinning from all the compelling knowledge, cramming for exams, keeping your schedule straight, and getting to know so many new people! It is while you sleep that your brain is able to commit all of this to memory. So try to make your bed as welcoming as possible. Aside from those extra long twin sheets, get some cute throw pillows and fun printed blankets to add a splash of inviting color to the room. Also, to create a comforting nook, WallPops has fashionable room panels that can be hung from hooks to create a little privacy. You and your roomate may have different study schedules, so these panels can help to give you both a sense of personal space. An inspirational quote above your bed is also a nice touch! WallPops has sweet words for the wall like “Dream” and “Life is Beautiful“.

2. Set up Your Study Space for Success

Get your dorm desk space organized with fabulous zodiac dry-erase wall art Dry-Erase Peel & Stick Calendar decals from WallPops

Hit the books and set yourself up to succeed by being organized! Your dorm room will come with a desk so that you have a dedicated space to study. Consider getting a charming lamp to set the lighting just right and add a home-y touch. Have fun setting up your desk with cute cups for your pencils and pens, be prepared with a stapler, and create a fashionable and functional folder system for each class. And don’t stare at a blank wall! Peel and stick dry-erase decals won’t harm your colleges’ paint job, and provide a space to plan your schedule and leave yourself reminders. With designer dry-erase decals by Jonathan Adler, including zodiac sign wall art, message boards and calendars, WallPops will whip your desk into shipshape!

3. Don’t Forget the Walls!

Dry Erase Calendars and Boards

Brace Yourself For A Busy Fall!

Five Back to School Tips for a Happy, Organized Academic Year

Reestablish a good bedtime routine.

Ease your children back into a busy schedule by gradually reintroducing a school year bedtime.  It is helpful to start this process a couple of weeks before school begins so that your children are not thrown off balance with a drastic sleeping adjustment on the first day.  The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that children ages 1 to 3 get 12 to 14 hours of sleep, children 3 to 5 years of age, 11 to 13 hours, and children five to 10 years old, 10 to 11.  This information is useful to keep in mind when reestablishing a bedtime routine.  After all, a sufficient night’s sleep will greatly improve your children’s daily activities. One of our adorable peel & stick clock decals can make keeping track of bedtime less of a chore!

Create a Calendar Central

Life becomes much busier at the end of August or the start of September but that doesn’t mean it necessarily has to become more chaotic.  With extracurricular activities, deadlines, meetings, social gatherings and more, keep the family up-to-date on the swirl of upcoming events by creating a calendar center, a centralized site for all family calendars and schedules.  To ensure everyone is well-informed without overcrowding a calendar, assign each family member his or her own monthly dry erase board.  Ideal for this use, is the new WallPops by Jonathan Adler Bargello Wave Four-Piece Dry Erase Calendar set.  The calendars feature Adler’s signature groovy waves in blue, orange, green and pink with one wave color per calendar so each family member can have his or her own.  For other peppy prints, try the Links Monthly Calendar featuring white-and-green circular tie-knots over a teal background with a navy border along with the Honeycomb, a classic navy-and-white honeycomb pattern with a teal outline.

WallPops Dry-Erase Calendar by Jonathan Adler with a Links pattern   Designer Dry-Erase by Jonathan Adler for WallPops

Make the center complete with dry erase boards to leave extra notes and reminders to all.  Try the coordinating Wave Dry Erase Board in a rainbow of colors with an orange outline.  To add a touch of personalization, surprise the family with the cheerful collection of Zodiac Dry Erase Boards featuring a top, solid color to provide ample room for notes, divided by the astrological sign written in fun fonts and a festive pattern or design on the bottom of the board.

Get ahead.

Never underestimate how much planning ahead can improve each day.  Before the week begins, plan meals for each day even stocking the freezer with prepared entrées for stress-free nights; layout children’s outfits a week ahead of time to save precious morning minutes as well as any other preparations to get you ahead of the game and ease the week ahead.

Start a New Tradition

As children can often get nervous for the big first day, initiate a new, fun tradition to mark the beginning of the school year and to begin autumn’s faster pace on the right foot.  Simply spending time together can ease the transition and comfort nerves.  Whether it’s a special family barbeque, end of summer vacation or big pancake breakfast the morning of, the tradition can be celebrated and looked forward to in the years to come.

By following these tips and getting the new school year off to a good start, your family can have a seamless and joyful year.
