I am really excited to announce my new Classroom Color Scheme Mix and Match Bundles. They were created with the goal of helping teachers create beautiful and organized learning environments for their students on a budget.

These bundles were designed to give teachers lots and lots of options and have been generously priced at a VERY LOW COST (less than 25 centers per product!!!) so that you can purchase more than one bundle and Mix and Match the colors and patterns within your room to create the custom look you desire. The sample images below feature all the included items found in each packet showcased using the black chevron print. Each bundle contains all of the same types of items shown, but in the color specified in the product title. Check out the bottom of this page to see all the colors and patterns that are currently available.



Each bundle contains ALL THIRTY THREE (33) PRODUCTS shown below (in the color/pattern you select) that are typically found in Pre-K to 6th grade classrooms. The bundles also include editable files that you can easily personalize for your classroom using Powerpoint.

Throughout the month of June, I am running 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 focus on a theme that "hits the spot!"












If you are looking for a theme or a means of tying everything in your room together and are hoping to do it on the cheap, then this is the theme for you. You can use a hole punch, bingo dabber, die cut circles or those circle stickers that come in primary and neon colors (many people use them for organizing books) to turn already existing items into polka-dot theme items. Another bonus is that you can color-coordinate your dots to a color scheme you like.


Buy paper plates at the dollar store. They come in a variety of colors and sizes. Hang them around the room or add letters to create a word wall.
Use polka dot ribbon (cheap at craft stores and Walmart) to create border.




Create a dot to dot figure making each dot have the name of each student in the classroom. You may use yarn to connect the dots with the students names. At the end when you connect all the dots you will have a figure and show students that together we can create anything possible using everyones mind! (idea source)
