I’ll admit it. I was totally that teacher who went in and organized her classroom before in-service week. Armed with a messy bun, thumping 80’s music, and an extra-large coffee, I would spend a day in August putting things back where they belonged and decorating with all my fun Spanish classroom decor. I always strived to have a classroom that felt warm and inviting. Think bright colors, lamps, and rugs. In the blog post below, I share some of my favorite decor ideas for the Spanish classroom. Whether you are a first-year teacher with a blank slate of a classroom or a veteran teacher looking to switch the decor up in your classroom, I think you will be able to find some ideas for your own Spanish classroom!
1. Collaborative Posters
Having your Spanish students do a collaborative poster will not only be a great team-building activity for your students, but you can also use the finished poster to decorate your classroom, door, or hallway! Having students work together towards the common goal of creating a poster will be a memorable experience for them AND set the tone for all the collaborative learning that will take place in your Spanish class this year. Grab a FREE collaborative poster here!
Students will each color one square of the poster and cut it out. After they finish coloring and cutting, use the included guide to put the pieces together like a puzzle to create a beautiful 2′ x 3′ poster!
- Spanish quote
- 3 poster options to fit your class needs (18, 24, and 36 squares)
- Detailed student instructions
- Assembly directions with grid
- Extension questions for students to answer about the quote
- Hallway display
- Door decor
- Bulletin board
- Sub plan
- Brain break
- Team-building activity

2. Papel Picado
This 4-pack of plastic papel picado comes with 60ft. of banners you can use to brighten up your classroom while at the same time bringing in some culture! I liked hanging papel picado from the ceiling so it gave the feeling of being in Mexico where papel picado hangs above your head in the streets. 😍 Buy it HERE.
These paper flowers would be so cute either hanging from the ceiling or in clusters in the corners of bulletin boards or whiteboards. This set comes with 24 for around $10. Buy them HERE.
This string of flags is 28 feet long! It includes all 21 Spanish-speaking countries, even Equatorial Guinea! 😍 Each flag is 8″ x 12″ and made from fabric, not plastic. Buy it HERE.
Large blank space on the wall you would like to fill? Check out this cute llama! It’s over 3ft. tall and 2ft. wide. Just peel and stick! Buy it HERE.
Send a positive message to your students with these cute posters in Spanish! They measure 13″ x 18″. Buy them HERE.
This pretty rainbow tassel could be used in a variety of ways to add a pop of color to your classroom. You could either hang it from the top of a bulletin board and you could do what I would do and that is hanging it from my whiteboard’s tray. It would make me happy every time I walked up to the board. 😍 Buy it HERE.
This classroom rules poster in Spanish is a great reminder of the expectations for your classroom. It measures 18″ x 24″. Buy it HERE.

10. Spanish Flag
Flags are an easy way to add color and culture to your walls (and hide any ugly spots). This 3 x 5 flag of Spain is great quality and fade-proof! It’s also super cheap! Buy it HERE.
11. WORLD MAP
I cannot imagine having a classroom without a world map. Both students and I refer to it all the time. The trick is to find one big enough that students can see it from anywhere in the classroom. This bad boy is 48″ x 78″ and perfect. Buy it HERE.
12. Hola Doormat
Welcome your students to Spanish class with this super cute ¡Hola! doormat! Buy it HERE.
This doormat is also included in my Ultimate List of Spanish Teacher Gifts on Amazon.
I LOVE having a rug in my classroom. Not only does it make the room feel more cozy, it’s a great place for students to read or work. Have you ever sat in a desk for 7 hours? It’s brutal. I like having alternative seating options for students. This area rug measures 51″ x 78″ and is super reasonable in price. Buy it HERE.
These 8.5″ x 11″ subject pronoun posters are the perfect size to display on a classroom wall. The posters come in two versions- full-color and black & white. 12 subject pronoun posters are included: yo, tú, él, ella, usted, nosotros, nosotras, vosotros, ellos, ellas, and ustedes. There are two ellos posters, one with two boys and one with a boy and a girl. Grab them HERE.
