I’ve debated what to call this theme. I think I’ve decided to just call it a “wild animal” theme. I suppose jungle, safari, rainforest or adventure would also apply. The monkeys are my favorite part.













Go on Safari in other classrooms:
Monkey-Themed Classroom Photos: There’s lots of stuff here that would be cute with the jungle theme.

Not only is this classroom tres chic, but it gets extra cool bonus point because everything is written in French. Madame McDonald teaches 4th grade in Canada. She did an amazing job of putting her jungle-themed classroom together.

I heart 3D elements. The safari hat is a great touch!
How lucky are her students to have this great spot for reading? Granted my one year of french back in 7th grade didn’t exactly render me fluent, but I’m pretty sure that Hutte translates to hut. 🙂
It’s amazing how something as simple as adding a little raffia skirt to a plant can make such a big impact. Looks great!
