I like to have a theme in my classroom when it comes to displays. Things like using the same fonts and having similar graphics throughout. My current theme is pastels and grey using the font Tin Tin and Century gothic. The icons come from NounProject.com
All the displays are created in PowerPoint.
Recently I have moved from putting out all the elements of the display to sending it out to be printed by a poster company. This I have found isn’t that much more expensive than printing each element separately but it does mean that the design I make looks the same when printed. Also, it means that the display itself looks better as I cannot cut straight and it is quicker to put up. We use a plastic sheet covering on any uncovered display boards so that they are protected.
