This year our classroom has a safari theme. I love changing the classroom decor every year. It makes each school year unique and special for that group of students. I love when my former students visit our room just to see the new theme.
We are going on an African adventure this year. A trip to Africa would not be complete without seeing a traditional hut. I've affectionately named our hut the "Reading Rondavel". Each day two students will get to sit in the rondavel during their free time and read.
I think we can all agree that the "after" is much more inviting for a group of Fourth Graders.
Here are a few other pictures of our classroom.
|All tests/quizzes and important reminders are written on the calendar. |
Did you know that Sharpie markers easily erase off laminated paper with rubbing alcohol?
|I love this rocking chair! It was a baby shower present from my mom when I was |
pregnant with my first son. Yes, his nursery was safari themed, too.
|I make seat covers for all the students' chairs. |
This year they are cheetah print.
The seat covers are so much better to look at than the orange plastic school chairs.
|The window valance is made of old burlap and has a black fabric trim. |
I made a matching table skirt for my computer table.
The table skirt helps hide all the computer cables and cords.
