"i love it i will be ordering more"
"I purchased it as gift and I love the way it came out. I'm excited to give it to my son and see his reaction."
"This made a terrific gift."
"We got very lucky at the end of the day with a beautiful shot of a fox on our property in perfect light. Several people told us the shot looked like an Impressionist painting so we finally got it reproduced on a Shutterfly canvas. Lovely!"
"Just what I wanted"
Whether it’s your first year teaching for your 10th, you want to create an inviting environment that engaged your students and gets them excited about learning. These tips and tricks will help you design a room that is beautiful, fun and educational.
When it comes to color, think about the age group you teach. If your classroom is full of kindergarteners or first graders, a rainbow of primary colors works best because you can also use your décor for learning purposes. The older your students are, the more colors you can introduce. Use them to teach when age-appropriate, or if your students are teenagers, simply use the colors to brighten up the room.
Especially as children get older, they often find their desks aren’t large enough to hold everything. By hanging a work apron on each chair, you give them the extra space they need for custom notebooks or art supplies. If your students are older, use the aprons to hold textbooks or other material they may have trouble carrying between classes.
Start by peeling the labels off empty cans and washing them, making sure there are no sharp edges as you do so. Spray paint them in your favorite colors, fill them up with supplies such as pencils, pens, markers or anything else you may use in class, and then set them out for your students to use as needed. The colors brighten up the room, and if you’re worried about items disappearing, you can create a checkout system. After all, school supplies are expensive!
Classrooms have had posters hanging on the walls for decades, but why not try something unique by hanging a custom canvas print created with Shutterfly? You can use them to print your favorite inspirational canvas quotes, periodic tables, multiplication tables or anything related to the subject you teach. If you can afford to, you may even consider featuring a student’s artwork once per quarter or semester.
