Luau Classroom Theme Ideas

Tuesday, July 23, 2019
I don't know about you but decorating my classroom in the beginning of each year was the most exciting part of my job! 😍I loved that feeling of walking into a new or previously used classroom with boxes upon desks, moved furniture, and bare walls. It gave me a sense of excitement that was inexplicable yet somehow, I knew exactly what had to be done. 
When decorating your classroom, it's important to consider a few key components. You'll want to think of your layout, classroom flow and traffic, practicality and functionality, classroom areas, and your students. You might want to make it student-centered depending on your teaching philosophy but this is something I have always had great success with because it gives the students a sense of pride, ownership and responsibility. They are more likely to take care of their environment if they feel like it's their own. 👍

The back to school season is an exciting time in any classroom but it can be overwhelming to new teachers and even veteran teachers who dread all the prep work getting a classroom ready can bring. In this post, you'll find the tools, directions, and printables you need to decorate your class SUPER fast and with little to no prep! 😉

Key components of a thorough and well-designed classroom decor set include the following:
* Welcome Poster
