Classroom Themes

Do you have a theme for your classroom? I have been thinking of Polka Dots! A new year, a new theme! Our school is doing safari theme, but I want to try to something a little neutral - so each year I don't have to keep buying new border and decorations. I think this is something I could keep around for a while! :)

Now, what color to use???

(you can click on the pictures to go to the products if you are interested - I have not received these products, just happen to like them bunches!)

I DO have this carpet that I got from Lakeshore (actually it was a DonorsChoose project that was funded several years ago):

(I love my rug! It is so durable and the colors look just as great as the day I received it!)

So I was thinking of using polka dots and saw this cute pack at her TpT store:


But wasn't sure about it matching my carpet. But it is just so stinkin' cute! She does have a super cute Zebra theme set:


Then I saw she had this set:

If you go to her blog you can see all her cute classroom themes! You will love all of them - they are sooo cute!

Wow! The bright colors are soooo cute! What is a girl to do! I am such an indecisive person! I think she is making a primary color set, have to keep an eye out on Kreative in Kinder's Facebook page for that one! She always puts her sets half off the first day she posts them!

I was browsing Teachers Pay Teachers and I found these cute primary polka dots:

If you go to her blog you can see the cutest polka dot classroom!


I am sooo hooked on polka dots! I need to just sleep on it and maybe it will come to me in a dream what I should do!!!

Next, I decided I needed to make some seats for my sweet Kinders to sit on. You know, the cute milk crate seats. Then I saw this blog post from Maggie's Kinder Corner:



Go visit her for the how-to - It sounds super easy!!! :)

I soooo HAVE to make these! I love the vinyl seat cover idea! Wow - so cute! My new Summer project! :)

What is your classroom theme???? I would love to hear any and all ideas you have! Who knows, maybe I will change my mind! :)

And before I forget - you know I love giveaways and I sooo want a HearAll from Learning Resources and you can win one here:

I'm doing black and white polka dots. Just spray painted most of my stuff black so if I ever want to change the pop color it will be easy. I'm accenting with yellow. Check it out here . I have learned to stick with 2 or 3 colors.

Hey Cheryl! Thank you for the mention of the "bucket seats"! I am so glad I didn't buy those ugly bucket seat tops they sell at home improvement stores. However, if you have a black/white, black/red, etc., theme, they might be just the ticket! Also, I would recommend two cans of spray paint or more if you plan to spray an entire bucket. One thing I'll say...the Krylon for plastic paint lives up to its name! Have fun, and please post pics when you get yours done!

I have a pirate theme every year, but I'm also incorporating black, white, and red polka dots with it. I think it will be just enough color for my classroom. I look forward to seeing what you choose! :)
