I was given the freedom to redecorate my classroom with few limitations. Where the Wild Things Are is one of favorite books to use in third grade because of the amazing lessons it teaches about accepting someone for who they are and not what they look like and that even if you mess up and make poor decisions, you will still be loved. With that I went to town painting and decorating my room. Each item was made by painting on foam board (purchased at home improvement store) since I was not permitted to paint on the walls. I used an overhead projector to draw the images and then painted each item. The foam board is light weight and is hung up by Velcro strips for easy removal (especially if I ever move rooms). I spent about 20 hours in all on this makeover, but the excitement on the faces of the students each day is priceless and make every minute worth it.
