I decided this year to use the same theme I used last year, but vamping it up. Though it's the same theme, it feels totally different because I had to move classrooms. My classroom last year is one of the biggest in the school and my dad (the 4th grade teacher) was going to have a huge class this year and needed more space. Since I have a tiny class it just made sense to have us switch. It was A TON of work, but I actually like my new classroom better, even though I have less space.
Like I did last year, I decided to try and do everything DIY for my classroom first of all, to save money and second, because it's actually fun!
