Beach / Ocean Themed Classroom


Although I am away on vacation, you are with me in spirit. Follow along with my daily itinerary and snag the deal of the day that relates to it.


As for the deal of the day:

Throughout the month of June, I ran a Classroom Theme Series and featured a different popular classroom theme each day. Since I'm at the beach today I thought it made sense to repost the beach theme.


My 45 Page Beach~Tropical~Ocean Themed Classroom Kit is now available in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. It includes all of the following items shown in the sample pictures below, plus more! Click here to view the kit.
