Since I can remember I’ve loved redecorating my bedroom. Painting, moving furniture, new bedspreads, curtains, you name it, I changed it. Just about every year I would ask for a something new for my whatever I decided to theme my bedroom this time.
That habit didn’t die quickly. I remember in college I would create new stuff for my room all summer long so that when I returned, I’d have a brand new dorm room complete with up to date fashion decor.
So why would my classroom be any different? In four years I’ve had 4 different, lovely ideas :). Of course, you really can’t count my first year, as I was just trying to be cute, but not understanding practicality. Silly first year teacher 🙂
In the summer of 2013, I traveled with some friends to Europe. Yep, you guessed it, when I returned, my entire classroom was travel themed (mostly Paris). Here are a few of my favorite Paris pictures from my trip 🙂
Insert Paris Theme…
I purchased a wonderful Paris themed clip art from Little Llama Shoppe on etsy. She is AWESOME for clip art. I love all of her creativity.
From there, I let the creativity flow! These are the math standards labels I created to help with organization. I used these to organize my math games in book boxes. Click here to get them in my store.
I also created these subject labels for trays. My students turned in their work by subject into the correct tray. Get these from my TPT store here 🙂
These are my world clocks I created from scrapbook paper and butcher paper. I found the butcher paper was not only easier to work with, but stayed on the wall better than construction paper. If you’d like a digital download of these, click here to find them in my TPT store. You can see the clocks in the library picture below.
I traced some of the clip art from my mimio onto butcher paper (and added my own touch) to create my classroom library. Here is a pic of the final product.
After having theses items for sale in my TPT store for so long, I actually had some requests for more Paris themed products! Here are a few products I created for others. Get the Reading Wall from my store here.
