Classroom Theme Change...or Not!

I've been thinking the past few months that I'd like to change my classroom theme to something new and different. For the past few years, I've had a WILD theme, mostly zebra print decor and each year, with help from my students, it's grown. I was almost certain a few weeks ago that I was changing my theme this year. But I couldn't decide on a new theme! There's so many wonderful, creative ideas out there in blogland but I can't narrow it down at all. I realized that I have a LOT of  zebra/animal print things left over, that I ordered from Vistaprint last summer, that I should probably use.

So I'm going to stick with my zebra print one more year and hopefully, think of something really awesome & unique for next year. :)  While I was surfing the net last night, I remembered that Melanie from Schoolgirl Style had some super cute zebra print decorations that would be perfect to add to my room. Even though she calls it her "Rock Star" theme, there's a lot of zebra print cuteness! Check out her store on Teachers Notebook if you're interested in buying anything.

 I need these new book basket labels! CUTE!!

 Wrapping paper instead of butcher paper for bulletin boards...LOVE IT!

With all the black and white, I want to add pops of color. So I might get some of these bright baskets and organizers from Really Good Stuff.

 Since I can't get into my classroom until next month, I have some planning/stalking/work to do. I will share any projects I make to go with my zebra print theme. :)


  1. I think zebra theme is very cute!! There's so much out there that you can use with it. :)
