Throughout the month of June, I am going to run a Classroom Theme Series and feature a different popular classroom theme each day. Themes are a great way to tie everything in your classroom together...you just have to be careful not to let them clutter your classroom :) Today we are feeling groovy with a 70s theme!
I definitely met my match on this theme. It was very hard to find resources to use, but I came up with a few ideas. If you have any pictures you would like featured or know of any you want to share let me know and I'll update this page. You can email me at littlestlearners at gmail dot com.
As I was thinking about it, I thought it might be fun to incorporate some of the things that were popular in the 70s, but have come around again...like the Smurfs. Here are some Smurf ideas. Gosh, I loved the smurfs.
Perhaps you could do a play on the Brady Bunch and create a bulletin board with the kids looking up, down, left, right and place them on a grid titled the "(Your Last Name) Bunch"
Billo is a great 70s style font that you can download free from dafont.
BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS:
Use tye-dye fabric as the background. If it were me, I would buy a white sheet and tye-dye it.
Use album covers from 70s artists
Buy a large piece of suede
