Chalk markers bring a greater level of joy into the classroom for students and teachers alike. Students enjoy the fun colors while teachers relish the smooth application—much different than standard chalk’s boring white color and gritty, breakable texture! Teachers also enjoy the many ways they can use chalk markers during the school day. From cute decorations to cheery lesson plans, consider these fun ways teachers can use chalk markers in the classroom.
Whether it’s the first day of school or a mundane Monday in need of a pick-me-up, teachers can use chalk markers to decorate their classrooms. Teachers can draw fun designs, write inspirational messages, and even create a display using a mini chalkboard by a door, reading nook, or craft station.

A well-organized classroom is a happy classroom. Teachers can add a greater level of organization and fun to their room through chalkboard labels and markers. They can add chalkboard labels to plastic bins, cubbies, and lockers for a charming and nostalgic aesthetic that bonuses in practicality. Once they place the labels, teachers can write students’ names, detail what’s in a storage bin, and draw fun pictures on cubbies.
Rather than using a standard paper calendar, teachers can purchase a chalkboard calendar or create one of their own by painting chalkboard paint over a canvas. Then, they can write out all the major activities planned for the coming month. This could include field trips, movie days, and pizza parties. Students will enjoy knowing what’s to come.
Custom hall passes are another fun way teachers can use chalk markers in the classroom. Out with boring wooden sticks and in with adorable mini chalkboards! Teachers can create fun hall passes by handing out mini chalkboards decorated with chalk markers. Teachers can write “hall pass” or “bathroom pass” in a pretty script or draw on the mini chalkboards using symbols or fun designs.
To keep the fun going all year round, teachers should invest in bulk chalk markers to ensure they don’t run out!
