A Peek Into My Classroom: Classroom Theme Linky

Today I am linking up with 3-6 Free Resources Show Me Sunday Linky Party & Surfin' Through Second to talk all about Classroom Themes!
There are so many ah-ma-zing possibilities out there, and one of my most favorite parts of summer is reinventing my classroom to make it as coordinated as possible :)

I have had the same blue idea for several years and just recently started running with it.

My main colors are:
navy
teal
My bulletin boards are all backed with navy and are either of these two borders from Trend:

They are Cool Stripes and Cool Swirls. I love them- the stripes trim the tops of my white boards and the swirls surround my bulletin boards.

Some of my favorite themed items:
My "No Name" board
Supply Organizer for all of my little odds & ends
Storage shelf underneath my teaching white board
Class Rules
Class Supplies
Class Pencils
Also, all of my chevron products are going to be hung in my room in the teal color (of course!).

The fabric for my curtains was a clearance fabric at Walmart ($3/yd? Yes, please!) and fits well with my theme and our class mascot- the dolphin. Yes, we are near the mountains of Colorado and our mascot is the dolphin ;)

I am DYING to see everyone else's classroom themes- head over to 3-6 Free Resources today to link up and show off your home away from home :)

  2. I love your colors! I mainly use turquoise and green colors in my room- I like the calming and cool colors! I'm impressed by your curtains, I've been thinking about it. I have read that it helps create a better learning environment by having extra special touches in the classroom, I guess I need to go in and measure the windows!

  8. I love your colours! I am switching classrooms and schools this year so I am planning on using a similar colour scheme, with the addition of green. I am looking to apply some Whole Brain Teaching strategies this year too, so I've entered your draw.

  18. I love the Mystery Reader concept. I have parents often volunteer to come in but haven't had an organzied exciting way to present. I am definitely going to purchase this item obviously if I am not chosen to recieve from you. We are working on incorporating inferencing and what an awesome way to work it in. Thanks for the project idea.

  19. I am so glad I found your blog today! I love your colors! My room is purple, teal and lime green and I have been looking everywhere for two years to replace my very faded and worn-out Cool Stripes border, but I didn't know the name or brand. Thanks to you posting the name, I finally found it! I think I may have to get the Cool Swirls set also and pair it with navy paper for my math board.
