What happens when you mix chevron and colors? You get a French classroom decor RAINBOW CHEVRON set, of course! 😉
French Classroom Decor RAINBOW CHEVRON
Having a nice-looking classroom is not just pleasing to the eyes. It is also a way of creating a welcoming and relaxing environment for your students.
In addition, by labelling bins, creating a word wall, and hanging vocabulary posters, you’ll be making it easier for your kiddos to communicate with you in French.
Let’s take a closer look at this French classroom decor set, shall we?
One important thing about this decor set: the text (in some items) can be edited so you get to use your own favorite expressions or required wording.

Posters are great visual aids because they can display a lot of useful information that your students might need throughout the year.
Posters also save you time because you won’t have to keep writing the same things over and over–all you have to do is point to one of them.
In the alphabet posters file, there are posters for each letter of the French alphabet, with two posters for the letters C and G (doux and dur).
Each one displays a letter (uppercase/lowercase) and an illustration of something that starts with that letter.
I’ve included two versions: one with a font that displays the guiding writing lines and one without the lines.
IMPORTANT TIP: print the file 2 or 4 pages per sheet to end up with reduced versions of the alphabet posters. You can, then, create a mini alphabet cards set that you can put in a binder ring!
Welcome / Letters Bunting
In the décor set, you will find a ready-to-print “Bienvenue!” poster (pictured below).
You can print the name tags and write in students’ names or you can use the editable file to type in their names.
Print the name tags, cut them up, and attach them to your classroom door, along with the welcome poster or banner.
This is a fun and bright-looking way to welcome your new French students!
There’s a “Bienvenue!” banner as well (not pictured).
I’ve included letters pennants too (pictured below). You’ll be able to create an alphabet line with banner that display the lowercase and uppercase letters in primary font.
You can also create celebratory/holiday banners all over the year by printing the single letter pennants. I’ve included all the letters of the alphabet (uppercase, lowercase, accented), punctuation and other symbols. In addition, you can use the letters to name places in your classroom or bulletin boards, e.g. “coin lecture” or a focus wall.
Calendar Sets (Pocket Chart or Velcro)
This French classroom decor RAINBOW CHEVRON includes two versions of a calendar: one for pocket charts and one to be used with velcro or magnetic tape.
There are cards for the four seasons, too.
The calendar file is updated every year.
Desk Name Plates / Tags
Desk name plates will help you in many ways, but the two most important are:
- they’ll help you memorize your students’ names
- they’ll help your students by giving them a clear reference of the alphabet letters, numbers 1-20, and basic directionality (gauche / droite). That should keep kids from asking you over and over again how to write numbers, or where left is.
I’ve included editable files so you can type in students’ names.
There are 12 circular table number cards (or “group”) AND an editable file so you can use the blank circular cards to create center signs or labels for your French classroom.
There are two cards per page, but you can print 2 pages per sheet (a printing option in most printers) to create the smaller cards you can see in the picture.
If you’ll be hanging the cards from the ceiling, be sure to print at least 2 cards for each table so that you can glue cards back to back with a piece of thread in between them.

Differently from most number posters around, this set includes numbers 0-31 because that will allow you to use the cards during your calendar routine!
Colors & 2D Shapes Posters
There are 11 color posters and 13 posters for 2D shapes.
There are cards with and without clocks. You can also choose between the ready-to-print cards and the editable (text) ones.
The good thing about the editable cards is that you can type in the subject names you use in your classroom. So, for instance, if you use “lire seul” instead of “lecture à soi”, all you need to to is use the editable file!
AND there are completely blank cards for you to add clipart for subjects/events that are not included.
There are 16 French classroom supply labels, like the ones pictured below. They come in color, four labels per page.
If you’d like to use your own vocabulary (maybe you prefer “les post-its” to “les papillons adhésifs”?) or you’d like to include more supplies, there’s an editable file for you in the set!
Word Wall Headers / Cards
If you’ve ever caught yourself writing the same words again and again on the board because students don’t remember how to spell (or don’t remember the word at all!), or if you’d like kids to use the words you have already taught them, you NEED to start using a word wall!
Plan out the words you know you’ll be teaching this year and add them to the word wall as you introduce them.
When students ask you how to write or “What was that word you taught us last class?”, you can just teach them to look for it on the word wall.
The decor set includes more than 200 ready to print word cards and an editable file so you can type in the vocabulary that is specific to your classroom needs.
This French classroom decor RAINBOW DOTS includes many other items not described in this post, such as birthday posters, days in school chart, behavior chart (pictured below), name tags, and more!
