Rockstar Classroom Theme

Each year my school votes on a school wide theme to use with Character Education. Our theme for the upcoming school year is going to be Character Rocks! So I decided that I would change my classroom theme to go along with it!! :) (PLUS it will also match my blog!! Yippee!!) I have been tutoring two days a week this summer in my classroom so I have been working on things here and there so that when August arrives I (hopefully) won't be in back to school panic mode!! ;) 
One of my first projects was to make an ADORABLE scrunchy border that I found on Pinterest!! You can check it out over at Peace, Love and First Grade! She gives AMAZING step by step directions with pictures! :) Here is what my finished product looks like:
This will be my Math Meeting Board!

Here is a closer view of the scrunchy border

Also did you notice the super cute shape posters below the board?!? They go PERFECT with my new theme!! They are from my friend Katie over at Little Warriors and they are FREE!! Click on the link to go check them out!!

This is going to be my new word wall! I plan on putting the high frequency words up as we learn them on magnets. I had my word wall higher on my wall last year and I think it was almost too hard for the kiddos to see/notice, so I am excited to see if this will work better!

 My favorite thing that I have made this summer is my Record Welcome sign that I have hanging right outside my door. I had some old "books on records" (like the books on tape/CD that I use now), but obviously did not have any use for the records. These worked perfect because they are about half the size of a regular record. I made the little letter labels to fit in the center circle. I used the "Rock Electric" font that I found over at The Inspired Apple, to make the letters. Thanks Abby!! :) It's PERFECT for a Rockstar theme! :) I just glued the letters to the records with a glue stick, then I glued the records onto some zebra ribbon with hot glue!

I don't know about you but I am LOVING my new theme so far! It is so fun to make new things for the new school year!! What will your classroom theme be?
