10 Tips for Creating a Monkey Themed Classroom


  1. Use brown fur (available in fabric stores) for bulletin board backgrounds or cut strips to use as trim.
  2. Outline your bulletin boards with fake vines and greenery.
  3. Balance the browns with complementary bright colors like pinks and aquas.
  4. Burlap is inexpensive and looks amazing with a monkey theme.
  5. Title your birthday board with "Born to Be Wild!"
  6. Create a welcome bulletin board that reads, "__ Grade is More Fun Than a Barrell of Monkeys."
  7. Take photos of your students wearing a tan vest and safari hat. Use the photos as a display or as labels in the classroom.
  8. Refer to your Guided Math Teams or Reading Groups as different types of monkeys.
  9. Place stuffed animals or inflatible monekys around the classroom as decorations.
  10. A low-cost way to enhance your monkey theme is to set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
