10 Tips for Creating a Farm-Themed Classroom

Are you planning a farm themed classroom or thematic unit? This blog post provides great decoration tips and ideas for the best farm theme yet! It has photos, ideas, supplies & printable classroom decor to will make set up easy and affordable. You can create a farm theme on a budget!
  1. Use a mix of red gingham and blue denim fabrics for bulletin boards.
  2. Outdoor carpeting that looks like grass complements the theme well.
  3. Take photos of your students wearing a pair of overalls and a straw hat to use to label cubbies/lockers or as a classroom display.
  4. Name your guided math teams and reading groups after farm animals.
  5. Store manipulatives and supplies in straw baskets that are used for vegetables (often farm stands will give these away).
  6. Use small metal pails to hold pencils.
  7. Cow print can be found on fabric, tableclothes and wrapping paper and makes a great bulletin board accent or table cover.
  8. Fake straw can be purchased at craft stores. Staple it around your bulletin boards to create an interesting border.
  9. Place toy tractors around the classroom.
  10. A low-cost way to enhance your Farm theme is to set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
