Sunflower Classroom Theme Ideas for Elementary Teachers in 2022

Teachers love a sunflower classroom theme because sunflowers give off a cheery feeling that will make your room feel happy and bright. Many teachers love a sunflower theme because it gives a rustic yet modern feel to the learning environment. It goes well with rustic and natural elements like wood and burlap. A sunflowers themed classroom promotes feelings of positivity and growth within the class community. This theme would be great for any grade level that studies seeds and the life cycle of plants. A sunflower theme is a great way to discuss the growth and how we are always learning and changing, just like sunflowers! Our sunflower classroom theme is an update to our burlap theme. When you purchase our sunflower theme, you will also have access to the burlap theme.

Sunflower Bulletin Board Backgrounds

The great thing about a sunflowers themed classroom is that a traditional cork bulletin board background looks great! If you want to get more creative and compliment the natural and rustic feel of sunflowers, use bulletin board backgrounds that look like rustic woods. If you choose to use fabric as your bulletin board background, burlap and buffalo print look great with this theme.
