Favorite Classroom Themes
This morning, I had my first cup of hot chocolate of the season. It’s finally gotten chilly enough here in North Carolina for a hot beverage in the morning to taste pretty soothing. (Being a Michigan native, I’m all about cold weather—bring on the sweaters and scarves!)
“Hot Chocolate” is actually one of my favorite early childhood themes (along with “Pond,” “Dinosaurs,” and “Nursery Rhymes”). In celebration of my beverage and this theme, here is a fun literacy center idea for you!
Place mini marshmallows and hot chocolate mix in an empty, dry water bottle. Also tuck a few small letter manipulatives in the bottle. Then secure the lid with tape. Write the letters on a sheet of paper and make a class supply. A youngster takes a paper and then shakes and manipulates the bottle, crossing off each letter he finds!
I’ve shared a few of my favorite classroom themes. What are some of yours?
All the best!
