I have just returned from Phoenix, AZ after a 12 hour drive, yuck. Oh my goodness, y'all I thought Texas was hot, but Arizona is HOT. It was nice to spend some time with grandparents, but they don't have WiFi so I am behind in my blog reading : (
During my time in Arizona, I was haunted by the classroom theme issue. I was determined not to pick a classroom theme. I really wanted to stick with primary colors and throw in some polka dots and stripes.
But, I couldn’t resist.
All of the kinder teachers on my team have the cutest classroom themes and the kids (and other teachers) recognize the rooms based on the theme. So, I decided that I needed to pick one specific theme. I thought about owls; have you seen all of the cute owl stuff out right now? It is all so precious, but, none of it fit right with my primary colors. I also thought about chameleons or crayons or western or …
THEN, it came to me..
It fits perfectly with my primary colors and polka dots and stripes.
ANNNNDDDD, I have a popcorn word wall in my classroom so it all goes together perfectly. I have been pinning and google-ing like crazy to find all of the perfect decorations and ideas. I am so excited that I have committed to a classroom theme, whew!
What theme is your classroom? Do you change themes every year? Does anyone else happen to be doing a circus/carnival theme?
I can't wait to hear your theme ideas and catch up on my blog reading!
I hope you have a relaxing and fun Fourth of July!
