    Castles are AWESOME! :)

    I have a castle theme in my classroom this year. I have decorated around the room with large castle pillars, dragons, and I would really like to figure out a way to have a moat! I'm thinking some sort of carpet?

    I have a Royal assistant, dragon's tail (line ender), gate keeper (door holder) and Castle Pages (helpers) as my jobs. My job chart consists of small gray castle towers labelled with jobs and bright colored knight shields with student names on them.

    I have used a cute dragon that I found when searching on google images for dragon coloring book pages that I put on most of my classroom news - sort of like DIY letterhead.

    I bought a very cute dragon rug and wall shelf/basket hanger from Ikea just this year. I also have some bright green good listening chairs that work well with the Castle colors.

    Instead of a piece of paper with "Ms. D's Second Grade" peeking out the window to the public, I have a small green hill with a castle on top and a gorgeous paper (dragon of course!) with a welcome message.

    I have frog prince bathroom passes and castle tower shaped reward charts (xeoroxed on different colors for different groups).

    If you look at the stamp store you can usually find castle, sand castles, and frog prince stamps. I'm searching for a cute Puff the Magic Dragon style dragon stamp. I don't want anything too dark or scary.

    As soon as I figure out what to write on them, I'm going to make large knight shields to hang from our cieling. I'm thinking of doing number words/pictures or perhaps our class rules.

    I hope some of that helps. I worked hard to research things to go with my castle theme after I fell in love with my Ikea dragon rug! :) You can definitely do it, it just takes a bit of work.
