12 Times Teachers Brought Movies To Life With Their Classroom Decorations

Diply 4 Oct 2017

When teachers find creative ways to perk up their students' interests in the classroom, it always gives me a brand new case of the feels.

These teachers have come up with one clever way to engage their students by bringing beloved movies into the classroom, creating a whole world of fun for everyone involved.

1. Welcoming students any other way than this door decoration would be Despicable.

If there is a minion on a door, you better believe I am going to go through it. Even if the other side means learning. Consider me enrolled.

Side note: Who else would absolutely love a classroom full of minions? I would have jumped out of bed every morning when I was in school just to experience this. Oh well, one can dream.

2. Using Finding Nemo to get students' attention is a major splash.

I'm not even mad that they changed the words to make it more relevant to school. And now "just keep swimming" is stuck in my head, but I am very okay with it.

3. I can't look at anything Up-related without instantly sobbing, and this inspirational classroom door is making it worse!

As if the first five minutes of that film weren't the saddest ever, but now I have to thank this genius teacher's anti-bullying message for all of the tears.

4. If Buddy the Elf was on all doors at my school, I would have been way more enthusiastic about showing up for class.

Then again, my teachers would have been super annoyed when I'd quote Elf nonstop. "Buddy the Elf! What's your favorite color?!"

Not to discount any of my teachers, but I also learned many important lessons from Mr. Ferrell.

Let's all just be more like Buddy and smile more! The world could use a little over-emphasized kindness these days.

Students could then earn points for their "house" based on behavior and keeping tidy. Am I too old to go back to school?!

Don't you worry your little Muggle self, there are more Harry Potter classroom decorations a coming.

If this teacher also had "Let it Go" playing behind the door on repeat, they wouldn't have been able to keep the students out!

You just know she would totally approve of this teacher's super cool decorating idea. So would Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and we'd bet even Anger could appreciate such creativity.

The one great thing about getting older (I said one) is that teachers nowadays can incorporate their love for movies that they grew up with, like Harry Potter, and share it in fun ways with their students.
