Classroom Beach Theme

How many of you have a classroom theme? I am one of those teachers that loves to teach with themes and for my classroom to have a theme look.... I know crazy! I have seen some rooms that go WAY overboard with a theme and often wonder why the students are over stimulated. Anyways, this year I am going with a beach theme. The reason being is that I have this large rug in my classroom that I just LOVE and it has an underwater theme to it. Plus the students that I teach, many have never been to the beach. I would love for them to have a little feel for it. :-)
Its not the best picture but the only one I could find at the end of the year after cleaning had started. Not even sure why my rug is in that place, must have moved it to watch a movie... However, isn't it awesome?!

Last year I did a pirate theme and it was so cute. I really wish I could show you pictures, but my external hard drive crashed and I lost all my pics from the begining of the year.

Here are some things that I plan to make for my room. Gotta Love Pinterest!!
My job chart for my beach themed classroom
Something like this for a jobs chart.

I did this last year and have cute tin buckets from Target. However, this year I may do something like this below. I will also use chalkboard vinyl to put the students names on the fronts of the buckets.

I found a super cute blog called Precious Perks. She has some super cute bucket ideas. Check them out!


I also found this from dandelions and dragonflies

 Great table organizer

I'm sure there are a few other things that I would like to do, but this gives me a starting point and as I said before... Keep It Simple. Too much is a bad thing.


What theme are you doing this year? What ideas do you have for a beach theme?
