Part of the Bigger Picture 

School wall decals are sometimes used to decorate school corridors or for educational themes. If appropriate, make your classroom door part of the theme. For example, if science is the theme in the passage, create a periodic table of success on your classroom door. 

A periodic table of success is laid out similarly to the scientific table of elements. The first letter of the word and sometimes one other make the symbol. For example, the symbol for the word work ethic is W, and Rs for responsible. You can add words to your table of success like supportive, reliable, creative, confident, and diligent.

For an art classroom, you can use an image of a famous painting or even a collage of several famous paintings. If you want a simple decal, a couple of large colorful paintbrushes might work.
