Classroom Decor Ideas for a Tropical Classroom Theme

Some of the classroom decor that you’ll see here are from my Tropical Classroom Decor Set. I loved creating a bright yet calm classroom this year!

Classroom Decor Ideas

This is the view of my room when you walk in. My mom is amazing and made my black and white polka dotted curtains because I don’t have a sewing/crafty bone in my body!

She also gifted me that beautiful floral chair. I believe she purchased it from Pier 1 Imports.

The little side table next to my floral chair is from Goodwill. The wicker basket on top of my side table is where I store my read-alouds and any other items I might need for a mini-lesson.

Oh and a lot of you asked about the shiplap bulletin board paper. I actually purchased mine from Michaels. Amazon also has it!

This is the view from my teacher desk (from the back of the room)..

My classroom library

My Guided Math and Guided Reading table. My Guided Math rotation board isn’t all the way up yet! Oops hehe! I hadn’t finished laminating all of the pieces.
The 7 Habits posters are from Amy Groesbeck! The cubby labels/numbers are from my Tropical Decor Pack.
Student Mailboxes…The absolute best purchase I ever made for my classroom! The mailbox numbers are from my Tropical Decor Pack.
Writing Process Bulletin Board
Schedule, Classroom Rules, Finished Work Basket, Work in Progress Basket, Other Labels are from my Tropical Decor Pack.
STEM Table {Think Outside the Box}
Birthday Bags–The birthday labels are from my Tropical Decor pack.

I’m a bit neurotic/OCD and don’t like scraps all over the tables or floor, or students walking back and forth to the trash can… so anytime my students are working on interactive notebooks, cut and paste math activities, or crafts, I place a tub on each of their tables for them to place their scraps in. You can grab them for free here if you’re interested or a bit OCD like me !


I set up a photo booth for Open House. It was so fun meeting my students and taking pictures with them! I got this idea from Teach Create Motivate.
