Throughout the month of June, I am going to run a Classroom Theme Series and feature a different popular classroom theme each day. Themes are a great way to tie everything in your classroom together...you just have to be careful not to let them clutter your classroom :) Today we are going to get an appetite for a Cooking / Food Theme.

    Do you have this theme package available in your TPT store? I looked and couldn't find it. I'd love to purchase it if you can point me in the right direction.
