Visible Learning

Visual Learning Aids

As teachers, we are all looking for creative ways to engage our students. Especially when it comes to planning for the new school year, aesthetic and colorful visual aids for learning are essential for welcoming little learners into the classroom. But coming up with ideas isn’t always easy and who has time to spend creating posters? 

One thing I remember from my teaching days is how busy things are in the lead-up to starting the school year. So, BFF, you might be wondering when you’re going to have the time to make all these posters and visual learning resources. Good news: I’ve got you covered!

Decorating your classroom can be fun, but it can also be a huge time commitment, especially if you’re new to teaching or are shifting between grade levels. After spending a whole lot of years in the classroom, there’s one thing I know for sure… visible posters and visual aids for learning are essential for any teacher. With this in mind, I have created editable and printable Primary/Elementary School displays including Visual Timetables to save you time and keep your students organized. Plus, visual cues signify to little learners that this is a happy, positive, and welcoming place to learn.

But perhaps the biggest advantage of utilizing visual aids in your classroom is that information is readily available to your students and much easier to process than when written. Visual aids for learning can develop your students skills in a range of different areas including memory, independence and literacy – and as a bonus they are nice to look at and highly engaging.

Whatever year level you’re teaching, adding a Classroom Welcome sign is a perfect way to make your classroom more welcoming, engaging, and visually pretty from the outside. Plus, for those who teach the extra little learners, a recognizable classroom learning aid on the wall may help the younger ones find their way back when let out for their lunch break. Visual Learning Aids are perfect for teachers, teaching assistants, assistant teachers, teacher's aides, and anyone in the education sector who needs to decorate their classroom.

To fill your classroom with visual cues and decor, the first thing you need to do is choose a decor theme that you love. Whether you’re going for a soft Spotty Pastels theme, a calming Boho Plants vibe, or maybe Modern Rainbow is your style, there is a decor theme to suit any style. And the best bit? You can save time and money by grabbing your resources in a themed classroom decor bundle.

Once you’ve found your dream decor theme (and browsing all my classroom decor theme bundles is encouraged!) edit the message on your sign, print, trim the white edges and pin it up in your classroom and you're done. And BFF, I have an eco-friendly tip for you: if you’re displaying posters above head height you can put the planet first by skipping on laminating (and you’ll save time waiting for the lamination machine too).

Teachers, I know you're busy, so I have got you covered with classroom decor that’s ready to use with just one click. If you love the idea of having colorful posters and visual learning aids, but don't have the time to make it yourself, these resources are for you.
