An Apple a Day

On this "Thoughtful Thursday" I thought I would link up to The Applicious Teacher for her weekly linky party "An Apple a Day." This week's focus is on Classroom Decor, and if you follow me on Pinterst, classroom decor has been on my mind a lot this week! I went just a smidgen pinning crazy!

I don't really have a "theme" (gasp, cringe, urgh!... I know!) but I also teach 5th graders. I tried to stick with similar colors of teal, bright blue, lime green, and hot pink around the room and I have random pictures of "Snoopy" as well. I'm trying to incorporate a little more Snoopy while sticking to a bright colorful room feel. I saw on another blog that her theme was "a bag of Skittles threw up" and yep, I think that's what I'm going for too!

Right now my classroom looks a little like this....
Ignore the tables being pushed against the counter and the massive amounts of donuts, we were having a Veteran's Day Celebration and needed LOTS more room & breakfast yummies... but the back wall contains my Map of the USA, a Center Stage (used for student work and current events), and a Writing Process board. I have my supply area and random posters on the counters/cabinets as well. I know some of the boards are hard to see because I also had Nonfiction "posters" from National Geographic hanging around the room because we had a text feature scavenger hunt earlier in the week! It was like poster OVERLOAD!

Here's the Writer's Eyes board (from above)...

Here are some other random areas of my classroom sticking with the bright color theme with a little bit of Snoopy...

This is my teaching area and Workshop rug. My job board is in the background - I'm hoping to update it this year. It's pretty boring but it was only $1 from Target. These rugs were on clearance at Home Depot last year and I was able to get both rugs for less than $10 dollars each!

The second picture is of my "movable" wall. This is my I Can board. I dressed it up with magnetic board, Peppermint Patty, and some Cricut signs. Next year my Government boards below are being replaced by Famous African Americans since US Government is out of my standards. I'm wanting the Charlie Brown "shirt" border to replace my USA border.

Polka dot accents
and more bright colors!

I already have quite a few Snoopy's in my room to bring in a little bit of a Snoopy theme. I bought the Peanuts lettering last year and fell in love with all the Peanuts "stuff." I just love that Beagle! I already have some window clings and a poster for my desk, as well cut outs of the main characters that decorate my door and writing workshop area.

Next year I'm hoping to add these to my room...

A gumball machine for erasers! The kids were constantly at my desk needing an eraser for their pencil!

I want to use these for a Meet the Teacher bulletin board. I plan on taking some photographs or printing out my favorite music, things to do, sports, books, etc. and create a mini board for the first few weeks of school. My goal is to change it out for my Student of the Month but I'm not making any promises....

I was thinking this could be used as a job board or at least an accent for a new job board. I'm not sure of the exact size so I need to go view it in person at the teacher store.

It's hard sometimes to get a total theme together for a reasonable price. Matching EVERYTHING can get expensive! ... But, I feel like piece by piece, my room has a unifying feel! It's always a work in progress :)

Don't forget to link up and share your ideas! I love being inspired by other great teachers!
