WHY CHOOSE A WIZARD OF OZ CLASSROOM THEME

Many of your elementary students likely have seen the classic movie making a Wizard of Oz classroom theme a great choice. It’s a film filled with entertaining characters, vibrant settings, and an engaging plot. There are so many fun elements that you can bring into your classroom to create a cohesive and interesting learning environment.

Elementary teachers love this classroom theme because they enjoyed the film as a child and are happy to share it with their students. In addition, they love the colorful elements they can add to their classroom to create a cohesive and customized look.

This theme is appropriate for both lower and upper elementary students.

BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS

BULLETIN BOARD BACKGROUNDS

Consider using yellow butcher paper to create a yellow brick road bulletin board background. Another idea is to use blue gingham fabric as a background. If you prefer to keep it simple and use solid color fabric or butcher paper for your bulletin board backgrounds, we recommend going with the colors red, yellow, and blue.

BULLETIN BOARD TRIM

  • add red glitter to plain red bulletin board trim to create border that looks like ruby red slippers.
  • sponge print to make a yellow brick rove
  • green sparkles to represent emerald city
  • foil to represent the tin man
  • straw to represent the scarecrow

BULLETIN BOARD TITLES

  • Create a welcome board reading, “There’s No Place Like __ Grade.”
  • Make posters with quotes from the book and movie. 
  • Refer to your Guided Math Teams or Reading Groups as “lions, tigers and bears.”
  • Title a welcome board “Welcome to an Oz-mazing Year!”
  • When creating your own titles, use words like road, witch, or oz.

OTHER IDEAS FOR A WIZARD OF OZ CLASSROOM THEME

  • Place student pencils on tables in oil cans.
  • Accent the room with lots of rainbow decor.
  • Take photos of your students wearing a tan vest and safari hat. Use the photos as a display or as labels in the classroom.
  • Post photos from the movie around the classroom
  • Use a magic wand when teaching
