Classroom Agriculture Theme

This was set to post last Sunday but for some reason it didn't - here it is a week late!

Remember when I told you about my theme for this year?  Well, my first grade classroom is put together and I have incorporated my agriculture theme as best I could.  Here is what my classroom looks like:
Bought this cute set at the dollar store a few years ago.

I went with brown paper and I really like it!

My favorite border - the food groups!

Our cubbies - we put books and white boards and anything that stays at school in here.

And they are labeled with our number on an apple.

Another board - Michael's mom did this (her name is Paula for the record) and I will hate when I cover it up with pictorials and charts and chants but that is what it is for.  Thanks Paula!!

The border - only along the bottom.

A tree to represent forestry - another one of Paula's creations.  Have yet to put leaves on it (my plan is for the kids to do it).

My job chart - cute overalls. 

Another space for posters and the like.

Grass border.

And honey comb border.

We put our backpacks in the hall in these cubbies.  They are labeled with cows - the dye cuts we have are cows with horns and udders so I cut the horns off.

Remember my idea for the hallway wall?

Here it is!!  I LOVE it!!

I am going to add tractors with their names under each paper.  Notice the row crops behind the green papers?

The border - bees.

This window was all Michael's sister's idea (Stacey) and I LOVE it!!

Bees made by Paula and lines drawn by Stacey. 

There it is - how I brought agriculture into my classroom . . . I love the theme!!  I did have trouble finding the borders I wanted but I am happy with the end result.  Now that my students are surrounded with agriculture I am going to start teaching them about it. 

What do you think?

I love this! It is obvious that you took a lot of time and effort to create such a unique classroom. It looks wonderful
