Inside: Dr.Seuss classroom door ideas that students will love.
When I look back on my time in middle school, there is one image that I see clearer than the others, and that is my classroom door. My teacher always took the time to make sure that our door was decorated in something unique and creative, and it meant the world to me. My absolute favorite theme of hers was the Dr. Suess Door!
She had styled it after the classic Dr. Suess Book Horton Hears A Who, and it made me so happy every single morning. I was thinking about this the other day, so I wanted to see what other kinds of themed Dr. Suess Doors there are out there. The result is the lists below!
If you are on the hunt for some inspiration for your own classroom door, then you are in the right place. The Dr. Suess classroom door ideas below are full of wonderful examples that range from The Cat in the Hat to There’s a Wocket In My Pocket! Check them out and see which one is best for your classroom.

1. Oh the Places We’ll Go – I think this is one of the most inspiring Dr. Suess books out there, especially when it comes to students. It can help to shift their awareness of their future and give them something to look forward to. This book inspires me, even as an adult.
