WHY CHOOSE A MONKEY CLASSROOM THEME

Elementary students love a monkey classroom theme because it features an animal known for being very silly in many children’s books. This nature-based theme will transform your classroom into a tropical rainforest that inspires your students and motivates them to come to school each day.

Teachers love this theme because students love it so much and it’s simple to put together. There are tons of DIY ideas out there that relate to this theme. 

This theme works for both lower and upper elementary students.

BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS

BULLETIN BOARD BACKGROUNDS

Consider using brown fur for a textured bulletin board background. If you are interested in solid color fabric or butcher paper for bulletin board backgrounds, consider using the colors brown, green, or yellow.

BULLETIN BOARD TRIM

  • cut-up strips of faux brown fur
  • fake vines and greenery
  • toy monkeys hot-glued to solid color bulletin board trim
  • construction paper bananas
  • stuffed animal monkeys with velcro hanging from artificial vines
  • tree branches made out of brown butcher paper

BULLETIN BOARD TITLES

  • “(Grade) is More Fun Than a Barrel of Monkeys”
  • “Hanging Out in (Grade)”
  • “Welcome! Come Hang Out With Us”
  • “A Great Bunch of (Grade) Students”
  • When creating your own titles, use words like bunch, hang, or swing.

OTHER IDEAS FOR A MONKEY CLASSROOM THEME

  • Title your birthday board with “Born to Be Wild!”
  • Refer to your Guided Math Teams or Reading Groups as different types of monkeys.
  • Place stuffed animals or inflatable monkeys around the classroom as decorations.
  • Take photos of your students wearing a tan vest and safari hat. Use the photos as a display or as labels in the classroom.
