Some things to keep in mind:
-2nd grade classroom
-Up in Heber, UT, so kind of rural
- Our school has a large Spanish dual immersion program, and I'll probably have a couple non native English speakers, so keeping things as literal as possible, and avoiding idioms and obscure ideas would probably be good....
Ok, with that in mind here are my candidates....
1. Cooking themed classroom

2. Hats themed classroom
This one I just kind of made up because I thought it would be fun to literally have different hats and put them on for different times of day....
-"Hats off to Miss Kate's 2nd Grade class!"
3. Hollywood themed classroom

4. Theme based on a book
I haven't picked a book yet, but one of my teachers based his classroom off of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. So something along those lines, though maybe a picture book so I can read it on the first day of class so they get the decorations.
Alright hommies. Let me know what you think and help make all our dreams come true!
