7 Ideas for an Apple Themed Classroom

  1. Round objects such as the paper lanterns or red paper plates can easily be transformed into apples by adding leaves and a stem.
  2. If you have a student of the day to help with classroom jobs you can refer to them as “The Apple a Day.”
  3. Create an interesting classroom feature by twisting brown craft paper (or even grocery bags inside out) to for the branches of a tree. Have each student make an apple to hang on the tree.
  4. Ask a local farm for produce baskets to house supplies with a ‘down-home look.’
  5. Red checkered tablecloths are readily available at party stores and can be used on an extra table to create additional storage space below.
  6. Title your student work board as “The Pick of the Crop.”
  7. Set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.

The apple classroom theme bundle includes BOTH the original version (shown below) and the newly updated version (shown above). In the newer version, we used all new clipart which includes much more diverse characters. Also, we made the entire bundle 100% editable so not only can you customize it with your students’ names and details specific to your classroom, you can now translate EVERYTHING into other languages too. This has long been a request from teachers of ELLs and immersion classrooms. Both versions are available in the Elementary Classroom Decor Collection.
