Monster Theme

I am going to be doing a monster theme in my classroom this coming year. I did a Hollywood theme for several years. You can look at the post here.  I have been looking online and found some cute ideas. Below are some of the ideas I have found.

I found these great pillows on Pinterest. What a fun idea to make as monster pillows and put in the classroom library or safe place. Click on the picture to go to the link.

I have also found some other great ideas on the blog by Teaching Maddeness. She has some great ideas for monster themes. I have used her website, Teacher’s Clubhouse  many times in the past. I know I will be buying many of her monster themed items also! One of my favorite ideas on her blog is the AR “Mons-TERRIFIC” bulletin board. Go by Teaching Maddeness to see all the other great ideas she has.

Trend Enterprises has a whole collection of monster themed decorations called Furry Friends. One of my favorite products is the Furry Friends Welcome sign. Click on the picture or the Furry Friends name for more information.

I have made several monster themed items for my classroom. I have made some Monster Library Book Labels that you can use in your classroom library to label your books. I have also made some Monster Themed Literacy Workstation Cards that you can put in pocket charts so students know what workstation they go to.

I have also made Monster Themed Math Workstation Cards that can be used for math stations. Click on the picture to go to my store to download these for FREE.

Hollywood Themed Classroom

I have had a Hollywood themed classroom for the past three years. I wanted to share with you some of the decorations I had in my room. The schedule that I used in my room were Hollywood signs with the subjects written on them. I bought these at Teacher’s Clubhouse. I  have used a lot of her materials in my classroom.

Another section of my room is the workstation area. I have my reading and math workstations listed with the students’ names next to them. The workstation cards and workstation signs (they are at each workstation) were bought from Teacher’s Clubhouse also. The cute headings were purchased by ThistleGirl Designs. I have used so many of her designs throughout my classroom. The other picture shows my students  award-winning work that they post on the doors.

I have also made a “Wall of Fame” to list my star student of the week and the previous star students are below. I also made a birthday chart keeping with the Hollywood theme. All of these graphics were purchased by  Teacher’s Clubhouse and ThistleGirl Designs.

Another one of my kids favorite areas was the classroom library. I made a bulletin board where the students would write on a piece of popcorn their favorite book. I had all of my bulletin boards (chalk board also) covered in yellow paper with popcorn border.

These are a few of the Hollywood designs I had in my room. I used to have stars hanging from the ceiling and other designs on the wall. Unfortunately the Fire Marshall came in last year and made us get rid of all of that. But that’s ok, it just gave me more room to hang my anchor charts!

Since I am changing grades next year, I had to change rooms also. So I decided to change themes too. I will post more on that later.

I hope you found some new ideas that you can use in your classroom!
