Corinna over at Surfin' Through Second is having a super fun linky party! A classroom theme linky...I've never done a classroom theme before, probably because I always taught the upper grades but now that I am moving to Grade 3 I have decided that I want to do one.

I have always liked Dr. Suess and all his crazy books but since I have had my daughter and have been reading them more often my like has grown to LOVE and I want that to spill over into my classroom. Here are some of the ideas I have found that I want for my room.
I am not sure which border I like better? Do I want just one through my whole room? Both? Decisions!!
Aren't these super fun! I am also hoping to go to my nearest thrift store and find some old Dr. Suess books that I can repurpose into classroom decorations...DIY, here I come!
This one I LOVE...
How fun is that??
Some places where I have found inspiration-
Clutter-Free Classroom has a whole post on Suess-inspired classrooms! Pinned that!
I will make this the first week with my class...how amazing!
Oh, I can't wait to get into my classroom and get it all put together.
