Eric Carle Classroom Decor Ideas


Have you used an Eric Carle theme in your classroom before? His colorful illustrations will light up any classroom. The main mascot for this theme would be the very hungry caterpillar. It easily stands out and reminds you of the book that made it so famous. I feel that the value that students are getting out of this theme is an environment that encourages a love for books and reading.

All of the Eric Carle classroom ideas in this post are found at Amazon. This will be a growing compilation of Eric Carle Classroom Decor Ideas. I love to find awesome classroon decor ideas.

The ideas and paid links below are based on Amazon finds that are great for making an Eric Carle themed classroom.

 
Hang up this very hungry caterpillar (#ad) in your classroom


 
Adorn your reading nook with this Hungry for a Good Book Bulletin Board Set (#ad). Or use it to make a bulletin board like the one above by adding these dot borders (#ad) and the orange background.

 
Teachers use this bulletin board set on their classroom library wall area (pictures above).

I found these dotted curtains and they reminded me of the painted dots in The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. These curtains would fit right your hungry caterpillar classroom theme decor.

These are actually name plates (#ad) that can double as classroom labels.

 
Make an Eric Carle themed classroom calendar using these months of the year cards (#ad) and accents (#ad). Just add them to a blank calendar bulletin board. The second picture used an Eric Carle border (#ad) and accents (#ad) to dress up a previously existing calendar.

This is a birthday bulletin board with the very hungry caterpillar featured among balloons and cupcakes, all illustrated with that artistic style of the Eric Carle books.

Eric Carle Alphabet posters (#ad)


More ideas will be added soon.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
