Throughout the month of June 2011, 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 blast off with a space theme!





The following pictures are from Ms. Sawyer's 3rd grade classroom. Check out her awesome class site to see more pics and learn more about her teaching.

  1. Thanks for the space theme ideas and pictures. I've had a space theme for the last few years and can't seem to change it, I love it so much. I live just outside of Houston, my husband works for NASA (not an astronaut, but provides tech support for space station), and I've had an astronaut's daughter in my class. We just love space around here. Thanks again!
