Fish Swimming Around the White Board
|My white board is surrounded by water.
One of my favorite features in the ocean scene surrounding the white board is the kelp. We actually made them out of green leis. When cutting the lei, be sure to tie a knot or staple it to the wall right way. Otherwise, the pieces will fall of the string.
I like these leis that have fabric flowers. I’m not sure if the plastic ones would cut apart well.
|My library and math manipulatives are easy for the kids to get to.
|I added the globes this year just for a bit of fun.
|I love having two kidney tables. I can work with ten kids at once and just spin to help who needs it.
|Just a little color to make my small group area fun.
Daisy the Dolphin
|I love Daisy the Dolphin!
I saw someone selling this dolphin online. It was a mess (several different colors). I asked if they’d be willing to donate it to my classroom and someone volunteered to buy and donate it. My husband did a great job fixing it up and securing it to my wall.
The wave board behind it bulletin board is paper that I cut free hand and layered over a different color.
Our Cardboard Pirate Ship
|We worked so hard to build this out of cardboard last year! Still love it.
Check out these blog posts to see how we built the pirate ship out of card board.
|Of course the kids love the treasure boxes.
|I’ve had this wooden jewelry box for a while, now it doubles as a fun treasure chest.
What’s an ocean themed classroom without a few pirates?
Simple Flowing Waves
I also have a box of smaller sea shells that my mom collected over the years. The kids love to use them as counters during math.
