This post is part of my Classroom Theme Series. Visit my classroom theme page to view ideas & pictures of all different themed classrooms.

Bulletin Board Backgrounds:
  • solid color fabric, paper or plastic table cloths in red, white or blue (Target has some really bold, bright wrapping paper in solid colors that would look good too).
  • decorative fabric with stars, stripes or a combo of both
  • you could also incorporate camo print and the military
Bulletin Board Borders:
  • Target currently has president flash cards in the dollar section. These would make a cute border on bulletin boards.
  • patriotic ribbons
  • die cut stars
  • photocopied money
Bulletin Board Ideas:


  • Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of __ Grade


Misc Tips & Ideas:

  • Class Newsletter = State of the Union
  • Class Rules = Constitution
  • Use branches of government as names for jobs
  • Take a picture of each student wearing one of those red,white and blue hats you can buy at party stores. Display them on a board titled, "Star Spangled Students."
  • Add the Presidential Seal to the front of your desk
  • Refer to your meeting area as "The Oval Office"
  • Call your reading area the "Library of Congress"
  • Hang a map and have the kids "Read Across America" by counting miles per book.
  • Check out the 4th of July clearance section.






This would be a great project for the kids to do that could be a decoration throughout the year.

  3. I teach 5th and we learn history up to Reconstruction. I am a real "history nut" anyway, so I love teaching this subject each year. This will by my fifth year to decorate my classroom in patriotic theme - and it's at a new school. Thanks for all the new ideas. Can't wait to get finished.

  5. I really like this theme and all you did! What literature do you use with it? I teach 3rd grade and am thinking about doing a patriotic unit. I need some literature to go with it.
