I think its really important to make your room interesting and inviting for students, even if they are 14-18 years old! Every year I do a different theme in my classroom. I can’t keep it the same for 2 reasons:
1. About 75% of my students return each year, so I don’t want them to get bored of seeing the same things over and over!
2. I’ll get sick of it!! If I had the time and energy, I would probably change themes each semester, just because I like new things!
This year, I was inspired by Dave Burgess’s book Teach Like a Pirate. So, what would I do but a pirate theme! I hope you enjoy my classroom!
I really hope you enjoyed taking a look around my classroom! I am really excited for the students to get here and check it out! If you are interested in any of the files for things like labels, quotes, bulletin boards, or passes, I would be happy to send them to you! Just find me on twitter @sdsu_emko, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks for reading!
