A Little Fishy

Any chance I have to talk about my classroom theme, I'm in!

I'm linking up to Surfin' Through Second's Linky party all about classroom themes.
If you follow my blog you can probably guess my theme but if not it is ocean/fish themed.

I don't think I ever thought about what my theme was going to be.. I just knew since I started teaching it would be nautical/ocean/fish themed. I LOVE the water, swimming, and fishing. The water has always been a big part of my life  so it just fits. It just brings a smile to my face looking around my classroom and knowing my theme has meaning as silly as that sounds. I guess it reminds me of home :)

Lets get to the pictures shall we?
My main colors were decided after I bought the fabric for my banner: Green, Blue, Yellow. But you'll find other bright colors all over as well but I'm trying to make these mostly predominate.

You will also see the bright colors in my wreath:

Then I found my bulletin board boarder last week:
It has blue, yellow, green = perfect. I want to put it on bright blue paper. I might double boarder it with yellow to really make it pop.

I'll be printing my headers for my bulletin board using this font for a fun vibe that also adds brightness:
From LetteringDelights.com, found here.
I might back some of the letters with card stock, if so I'll be using this pack I picked up on sale from Jo-Annes:
The colors match my boarder pretty perfectly and my wreath! My trick is I keep pictures on my cell phone so then I can see if things would really go well together.

My calendar numbers, behavior chart, newsletters, labels, and everything else I've created for my classroom (will be posting soon!) has had fishy clip art from Lettering Delights that looks like this:

They also have a a set called School of Fish I use a lot that I love since it incorporates fish AND school stuff! It's found here.

I have some fishing net I'll hang on a wall, stuffed animal shark, dark blue buckets, and a few more things for the student's desks that will add to the 'ocean/fish' theme. I wish I could take pictures of it all but its packed up in my classroom. Guess you'll have to wait for the big classroom reveal in August!

But can you picture the theme coming together? I'm hoping it will look fabulous!

ps. I went to Walmart for a few things I got very excited when I saw this:
It is spiral notebooks right in the front! That means school supplies shopping is coming! Can't wait for Target to get theirs!
