Well here it is, SUMMER, and if you are reading this you are doing what teachers do best - thinking about school! It's a blessing and a curse. So, if you are going to be thinking about school and getting prepared for next year - then you might as well have some fun doing it! I'm so glad you found the Summer Stock-Up!
When it comes to setting up my classroom I, like you, put a lot of thought into what I my room to look like and feel like. My goal is always to make an inviting and comfortable room for my students. When I moved to kindergarten I spent lots of time thinking about my decor. I finally decided on an Eric Carle theme. I LOVE Eric Carle - his books, his illustrations, really just everything about him! I hit the internet and was really disappointed that there was not much out there in the classroom decor category. So I decided I would just make it myself. The result is my Eric Carle Inspired Classroom Theme.
I have tried to include everything a teacher could want in this theme. As a teacher myself who is always looking for a good deal, I try to be mindful of the teacher budget. This is why I have each item separate in my store. This way you only have to buy the items that you will use in your classroom. For those that want it all, I have bundled the items together with a discount for the bundle. So here's a glimpse of just a few items in the Eric Carle Inspired classroom theme.
There's many other components to this theme. Take a couple minutes to check them out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I even have many of the resources available in Spanish too! You can find them all by clicking on the caterpillar below!
Here's a few pictures of how I used this theme in my classroom. I used the resources I created and also things I could find in teacher stores and online.

my TpT store. The cards come in 3 different sizes. The
Eric Carle border I found at a local teacher store.
I hope these give you an idea of how you can use this theme to make your classroom a fun and inviting place for your students.
