Trend report: The top classroom decor trends and best sellers of 2022

The end of 2022 is (literally) around the corner and before we all freak out about 2023 rearing its head, I thought it would be nice to reflect on the AMAZING year we’ve had and take a look back at all the classroom decor trends that took 2022 by storm.

This year has been incredible for Miss Jacobs Little Learners and I want to thank you for being here, buying the products and resources that I pour my heart into, allowing me in your classrooms and supporting my business. I feel like the best way to cap off the year is to have a bit of fun so sit back, relax and enjoy the MJLL classroom wrap-up for 2022.

Think of this as the medal ceremony of the teaching world, the Logies or Oscars of classroom decor, and the Spotify Wrapped of education resources, ALL bundled into one big blog. 

The new collections that launched in 2022 

It’s been a biiig year for Miss Jacobs Little Learners! Lots of changes, growth, innovation, and a huge community of lovely teachers that is continuing to increase in size every day. My team has expanded, there’s LOADS in the works and I really feel like next year will be even bigger. 

In 2022, MJLL launched 4 new collections starting off in May with the release of Boho Plants! I knew I needed something earthy and green for those teachers out there looking for a softer classroom theme that radiated calm energy and you guys LOVED it! Fast forward to November where I soft launched 2 new – and highly requested – decor packs, Pastels and Ombre Neutrals. After launching a few different spotty ranges in the past, the feedback was that some of you loved the colors and the graphics but just wished you could remove the spots. I heard you loud and clear and created these 2 minimalist packs without the spots. And if you’re holding out for the Rainbow and the Boho without the spots, keep an eye out for those coming soon. Then last but not least in early December I released my brand new collection Modern Jungle and you guys LOVED it! It may be too early to tell but I think it could be a popular classroom decor theme for 2023. 

The most loved classroom resources

While loads of you loved to score all your classroom resources in a bundle, others love to pick and choose pieces throughout the year and mix and match decor collections. Without further ado, here are the awards for the top 3 most loved MJLL products of 2022: 

The bronze medal goes to … 

The Boho Rainbow Bulletin Board Lettering Pack! The community has created some AMAZING classroom displays using these lettering kits featuring different fonts and 3 styles of lettering in multiple color options making it the 3rd most popular resource from the MJLL collection. How lovely is this feedback from Brittany, “bulletin boards are no longer a hassle to create with this cute and useful resource! I love how it matches my boho rainbow classroom theme”. You guys especially loved how the lettering matches nicely with the other MJLL Boho collections and it’s versatility and ease of use, a worthy third-place winner.

The silver medal goes to … 

The Boho Plants Meet the Teacher Template! Although a surprising winner, this editable template is such a cute way to welcome new students into your classroom so I can see why it came in at number 2. This product includes 8 different templates making it the perfect teacher tool, take it from Rachel who left this glowing review, “I needed some templates for back to school night and these were perfect. The colors are adorable and they were easy to use.”

The Boho Rainbow Growth Mindset Posters! Teaching students how to have a growth – instead of a fixed – mindset is super important. These posters are the perfect visual aid for students to remind them of all they are capable of. Plus, they are super cute, totally on trend and the perfect addition to my best selling Boho Rainbow Classroom Decor Bundle which explains how they scored the top spot. 

Maryn sent us some amazing feedback after adding these posters in her classroom. She said “this is perfect for my BOHO classroom theme! I've gotten so many compliments :)”. Thank you fo much for your feedback Maryn!
