Kindergarten Memory Book & A Decorating Theme?

Happy Sunday, Friends! I have a busy day ahead of me, but I managed to get this little Kindergarten Memory Book posted for you. It is on sale for today only for $1.00! So get over there & grab it! Let me know if you need anything changed to meet your needs. I am happy to help!

On a side note...
Does anyone decorate their classrooms with a theme? You know...frogs, monkeys, stripes, etc...
I have never really done this, but I have seen so many cute classrooms on blogs & pinterest that have me thinking of rolling with a decorating theme this next year. I absolutely LOVE polkadots, but I am afraid that they will get on my nerves after a while...
Can anyone sound off on this?!? I am interested in hearing your input...where is everyone getting the cutie pie stuff they are using to decorate? Are they making it themselves? Oh, the questions!?!?!?

I LOVE themes!!! Every year I have a different one. When the year ends, I keep everything so that if I ever want to do the theme again I can take out all of my decorations. My first year I had frogs, last year under the sea and this year owls!
schoolgirlstyle.com has lots of decorations you can purchase from and they look amazing! you could also check out reallygoodstuff.com
and with all the amazing clipart out there, you can make lots of little posters and decorations to go with your theme! :)
btw, love the polka dots idea!

I loooooooooove themes! I've done crayons "Be A Part of Our Pack", Circus "We Don't Clown Around" and "We're Nuts About Kindergarten", Frogs "Leap Into Learning", and next year I just want an overall cheery room so I'm doing over the rainbow. I buy fabric for bulletin boards because it is more fun and it doesn't fade like paper. BTW, the fabric I have up now I've used for 4 years and it's polka dots and I still love it! Everyone tells me how much they love it too!! (come check out the pics of it under some of my first posts)

We have a building theme that changes each year. Last year it was sports. This upcoming year we will have space. It is pretty fun, but we have to change it each year.

Ok...blogger will not let me reply to individual posts...go figure!
I think that I am digging this whole decorating theme idea. I had no idea that it was such a big to-do.
@Hadar- you're right! Who could ever get sick of polka-dots?!! :)

Hi Jen! So glad you found my blog and that I found you as well! I never have a specific theme. Instead, I just use a lot of bright colors. This year I have begun to sprinkle in a few polka dots. Not enough to be overwhelming, just a fun compliment to the bright colors.

You can see a little for yourself here.
