I love hanging things from my ceiling; it really brings a classroom to life! As you know, I have a Dr. Seuss theme in my classroom. At the beginning of the year I read my students the story Oh the Places You’ll Go. Then we made hot air balloon glyphs to get to know each student better!
I have such a beautiful view of the Ohio River Valley from my classroom, and curtains are the perfect way to frame such a lovely scene! I love the home-like feel they give the classroom.
First Grade students love to help out in the classroom, and let’s face it; we need all the help we can get! When creating my Dr. Seuss themed classroom I wanted my job chart to be inspired by one of his books. For my job chart, I tamed the mischievous characters from The Cat and The Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, and turned them into helpful creatures!
As a child I always was enthralled with the illustrations in Dr. Seuss books. I always wondered what it would be like to live in his world.
As a teacher, I want my classroom to be a beautiful place where children feel like they have stepped into a book!
When I obtained my position as a first grade teacher, I new it would be my opportunity to create my Dr. Seuss themed classroom. I always loved how colorful the trees were in his stories, so I filling my room with Truffula trees was an absolute must!
