Beach Theme!! I found a cheap, simple way to have color in my classroom without the expense and pain of painting the walls. I bought $1 plastic table covers in various vibrant colors and stapled/taped them to the walls. Viola!!! I also bought beach-themed decor to add more punch to the atmosphere! In addition, I transformed particular areas of the room into subjects areas: Math Wall, Reading Wall, Language Arts Wall, Science & Social Studies Wall, and The Beach.
