Fiesta Classroom Theme Ideas

A fiesta classroom theme embraces diversity and uses lots of paper decorations that are vivid with a mixture of stripes and bright colors. The two main paper decorations that you will see are the popular paper fans and papel picado tissue paper banners. I'd like to see more of the papel picado being used. Especially for lettering to make bulletin boards and welcome banners. I'll be on the look out for these because I really wanted to add more ideas to this post. TpT has some here. I want to stay away from triggering elements like sombreros and tacos and you should too. These elements are stereotypical and have been really overdone.  

I found a teacher through TpT, her store is My Spanish 2 Go, check out her free video showing how you can use papel picado letters to make your bulletin boards. The one in the bienvenidos picture above came from her designs.

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!
