Teachers, let’s face it. Classroom clutter can get out of hand! We know your goal is to create a colorful and stimulating learning environment. But between the materials you need for instruction, what you need on hand for your students, and your classroom décor, things can sometimes get crazy—and fast! But it doesn’t have to be this way, thanks to Dowling Magnets’ double-duty decorative and functional classroom décor pieces! Each of the two-in-one classroom supplies below serves a serious educational purpose AND looks great displayed in your room, year-round.
Cut the clutter and capture your students’ attention with our:

Magnetic Name Plates
Available in four double-sided designs including Original Geometric, Zigzags & Lightning, Pixels & Dashes, and Circles & Ribbons in bright colors, these nameplates aren’t just functional: they’re fun, too!

Double-Sided Magnetic Borders
Put down the tape and snap on some magnetic borders instead! While they might not provide an educational benefit, they’re faster and easier to put up than paper borders, leaving you more time to plan and teach! Our Double-Sided Magnetic Borders are reversible, too, for a quick classroom refresh in a matter of minutes. And, since they’re made from durable and die-cut flexible magnet sheet, these borders last from year to year.

School Signs Magnet Set
Encourage positive student behavior from the first day of school to the last! This inexpensive, teacher-designed set includes fun road-sign themed flexible magnets that encourage positive school culture and good student behavior all year long.
