Hey teachers I am a first year, male teacher...I want to do my classroom in a construction-theme. I want it to be called the "Learning Zone"

Any ideas on how to decorate it

Caution tape, tractor trucks, cones, .... I bet if you go to a teacher store they'll have some themed border and cut outs you can use. I've seen some at the Dollar Tree too.

Best wishes for your first year!

Hey! I had a coworker who put brown paper up on the big bulletin board and wrote: Under construction and never bothered with any actual display. How about that????
Okay, not a good idea for first year teacher. ! Sorry, it's late I couldn't help myself.

There should be some cute materials you could use in catalogs like Creative Teaching Press etc. It would be cute to do your centers with labels that start with "building _____"

If that doesn't work out another coworker does her whole room in the race car theme. Lots of cute sayings and decorations go with that. May be easier to find, and after so many years of teaching, I am into easy.

Try posting on the Busyboard and you will probably get some great ideas. The teacher's lounge is for non-class related posts, so you will probably get less feedback.

I teach 1st and did a construction theme. Got plastic hard hats at Oriental Trader. I also used plastic toolsollar Tree/Target $1.00 section to go with each of my six-traits writing.

The nail aprons at Home Depot can be used to hold markers, rulers, and other supplies.

Construction Theme

Dollar Tree has little orange construction cones (to seek assistance, I think).

I've also used bulletin board borders that are yellow with black stripes and say "Kids at Work". This can come on a triangular sign as well.

And yes, I've used the 'under construction' sign more than once -- but never for more than a very short time. It built some anticipation as the kids worked on their part of the board.

I believe, "Can we do it? Yes we can!" was actually Bob the builder before Home Depot or our president.

Congratulations on your first year!
