Black and White Classroom Decor and More

black and white classroom decor ideas

A black and white classroom decor is preferable for older students. Some teachers prefer it because it is less cutesy and less distracting. A simple theme like this is easy to work with because you don’t have to worry about clashing colors. A hint of another color is fine but the main colors are just black and white. There are lots of black and white printables that you can use to decorate your classroom. See black and white classroom decor printables in my TpT collection.
