Let's face it: when you see a classroom theme that you love, it's easy to commit to that theme right away and build an entire classroom around it.
However, in today's episode, let's talk about seven things I've learned to look for in a classroom theme to ensure that you're not wasting time or money, and to ensure that you're creating an inclusive space for your students.
I hope that this episode is helpful for you as you make a decision about the theme to use inside your own classroom. And, if you have follow-up questions, be sure to leave your comment below, or join our Facebook group to continue the conversation!
Until next time, remember, just because you're a beginning elementary teacher, there's no need for you to struggle like one.
