Hi! This is Heather from Campfire Curriculum with Helpful Heather. First blog post ever alert!!!
Make Your Classroom Theme-erificI know that you are thinking, "My classroom theme? It's April!" Yes! Summer is right around the corner. That's when teachers have creative free time. We shop at garage sales and think about our classrooms (which should be illegal).
There are so many creative teachers out there. Many of us enjoy classroom themes. I've met teachers that change their theme yearly. Not me! I like to build upon my theme year after year. The only stipulations that I have before bringing an item into my room (or creating one) is that it must serve a real purpose! Cute items are nice, but we don't have the room for that. Let's get really creative and make our classrooms effective and fun!
Camping ThemeBig surprise! My theme is a camping theme. I enjoy camping and anyone can camp! This is how I created my domain name Campfire Curriculum.
This is my reading stump. I found a bright pink ottoman on sale at Target for $4. I covered it with material and used hot glue and a staple gun to keep the material in place. I keep whisper phones and fun reading glasses (lenses removed) inside the stump.
