Cooking / Food Themed Classrooms

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.

I do have a cooking theme set in the works and will publish it in the next couple of weeks. :)

Add cafe-style tables to the classroom.
Use oversized measuring cups to hold pencils or other supplies.
Use pizza boxes to store student portfolio work.
Take pictures of the class wearing an apron and chef’s hat to display.
Create bulletin board titles by putting letters onto paper plates.

    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.
