Corinna at Surfin' Through Second is hosting a Linky Party that will allow bloggers to share our current or soon-to-be classroom themes. Recently polka dots and zebra prints become all the rage and I'm loving all of the ideas I'm seeing on Pinterest and in teacher stores. If you check out my Pinterest board for classroom organization, you will see images that inspired me. Here is what I have so far:
I found these on Amazon and bought them today for my bulletin boards and classroom window.
I changed all of my bulletin board borders to these cute polka dot themed borders. I'm considering buying zebra striped ones and layering them with the polka dots, but I am not sure yet. Any suggestions?
I also made some binder covers because I am not going to organize everything into file folders this year. A Pinterest-inspired idea! The binders will house my lesson plans, Daily 5 paperwork/activities, math center paperwork, assessments, etc. It's been a lot of work getting them organized, but so far I like it because everything is much easier to find. If you would like to download them, visit my TpT store and get them FREE!
I am planning on making my own CAFE posters to match, along with some cute name tags and a new behavior chart. At Back to School Night I am going to ask parents to donate zebra print pillows or seats for my classroom library as well. Maybe something like this:
So cute! Well, as I continue to create items, I will post them on my blog and in my teacher stores.
I'm looking forward to checking out the following bloggers who linked up with Surfin' Through Second!
