Hey there Fellow ECEs! Can we talk classroom themes? Does your school give themes to chose from or can you come up with your own? And how about purchasing decor vs making decor?

We vote as a staff on a school-wide theme each year. I try to keep that theme in my hallway in conjunction with student work displays. Inside my classroom I keep theme to a minimum and stick to my favorite color scheme.

We come up with our own by grade. Dr Suess, Hollywood, beach, etc. are some examples. Target themes are also popular!

That is very similar to what we do at the preschool I currently work for. Each age level classroom picks it’s own theme and has it approved by management. We are given a list of requirements that must be met but we are free to fulfill those requirements as we see fit. For example, we have to have a wall dedicated to colors. So I made a large rainbow. Other teachers doing an ocean theme just made multi color fish.

So we are a global school, with each grade level representing a different region. As a PreK classroom, I decided we would be Global Explorers, and I have a global activity center with maps and such. Each year we have a different mascot- since I visited China this summer, our mascot is a panda! I also decorated with a Chinese Mexican theme! (Went to Mexico too).
