Re: I'm redecorating my classroom this summer!

My friend is a 3rd grade teacher. She's very enthusiastic and loves to change the "theme" in her classroom yearly. Last summer she spent days decorating her classroom before school started again. Obviously she did something that her school frowned on and they came in and repainted her room all white. They were NOT happy. Too bad a teachers enthusiasm is considered a detriment in her school system. Woman Sad

For a minute I thought that was the Jolly Green Giant and didn't get it right away.  D'oh!!!!  LOL!

 

I do like the color scheme - the blues and greens are tranquil - great selections all around.

 

Have fun Mel!  Decorating and seeing their faces on the 1st day is always fun!

[ Edited ]

I always volunteered at my kid's schools. I taught one on one reading and worked in the library. I also assisted with art projects.

Many of the teachers were running out of ideas when it came to classroom decorating. They  gave me an amount to spend and told me to go for it. It was one of my favorite things to do. 

Because of my strange eye issues royal blue was always a harsh color with the florescent lights so I never used it. They were okay with that. 

I am jealous, I wish I could come "play with you".

Love it!!!!   Do many teachers do that ?   I have cousin who has been an elemental school teacher for 25 years and she along with her husband and sons always decorate her classroom.  I've even known them to paint walks and do the floors.  I always wondered if a lot of teachers do that.

There are a few in my school who paint on occasion.  Not many go all out to "decorate" like the pics I've posted, though.  I love having a very colorful, happy classroom.  Smiley Happy
