Classroom Theme Linky Party!


As I am enjoying my summer, I am so excited thinking about my new classroom theme for next year.  I've decided to do a Classroom Theme Linky Party.  I know I'm not the only one that likes to see other's classrooms and themes. So blog about your classroom theme past, present, or future and include the linky party pic above (make sure you link up to this blog post).  Hopefully you can add pics! :)

So what is my theme you ask?  Well obviously frogs. However, my entire 4th grade team (all 6 of us) are going with the theme "Peace, Love, and 4th Grade". Crazy I know, a whole team agreeing on something but it's true!  We are getting T-shirts made to match....Thanks Blair! Oh yeah, I guess I should tell you that my theme is a tad different from my teammies...."Peace, Love, and 4th Grade FROGS!!!!!!!  Of course I couldn't do a theme without my frogs!  I am still looking for decoration ideas and some of my fabulous blogging buddies are helping me out too!  Here is my classroom website/blog for next year.  It has not info on it yet but the background and header is ready to go!
I plan on buying some tie dye material and make a valance or even make a valance with tie dye bandannas (thanks for the idea Jennifer!) I also went crazy creating and ordering things from Vistaprint!  Here are some of my fun creations:
bookmarks
contact info magnets
a vinyl banner
notecard
Here's my business card



    
Ok, now its your turn!  Show my your classroom themes!  Feel free to comment if you have any groovy frogilicious items that I may just HAVE to have for my classroom.  :)

  3. Lorraine!!! Have you ever heard of Peace Frogs before??? (http://www.peacefrogs.com) I LOVED frogs growing up and used to have several Peace Frogs shirts!! They even have tie dyed ones!!! I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but seeing this post made me think of it and you!!!!! They also have tons of other thinks (cups, keychains, etc.)!! I bet they would look great in your classroom!!!

  4. Lorraine, I'm glad you want to try the bandanna valance. Be sure to get the 3M hooks so you can make them drop like a swag!! Also, be sure to measure first! I didn't have enough bandannas and had to make a run to Hobby Lobby in the middle decorating my room.

  5. That's great! My whole school (K-4) is doing a peace, love, & {our mascot} theme! I made a "groovy" class pack to get started and found some cute personalized stickers from an online company! As I get more done, I'll be sure to join the party!! In the meantime, you can see the very few things I have done and the class pack (no frogs though...sorry!) at my blog!

  6. I love your theme...so cute! The kids will be all over that. We are kicking off Leader in Me at my school this year, so I think our whole school is going to be using our mission statement as a theme...I'm not quite sure what that will look like yet though. Can't wait to see your room & theme once you start putting it all together.
