Last year my teammate and I did an ocean theme in our rooms while the other fourth grade team did superheroes. Both of the teams really liked what they did (not to mention the time, effort and money invested) so we are continuing with them this year.
I went on a hunt for pictures and I didn't have many where the actual room/theme were the showcase. I kind of had to grab assorted pictures to give you a little idea.
The focus when you head into my room was the diver hanging over the window. A couple kids thought she was a bit creepy but most thought she was cool. I have her home for the summer to fix up her hair and add some stuffing because she looked a little sickly thin by the end.

Along one of the walls when you come in there is a bulletin board, two whiteboards and our book boxes. All the boards have fish or waves around the edges. In the first pictures the boxes are empty and the bulletin boards don't have much on them. The second you can see the stuff in the boxes. The boxes had each kids' name with either a boy or girl diver (from scrappin doodles) that they could color in.

Last year I made a bunch of things for my room so I'm going to stick some down here since the pictures were already in blogger.
Wow this ended up being very picture heavy. Hopefully it didn't take forever to load :-o
What do you have in the works for this year. Be sure to go over and look at some of the other great ideas at The Applicious Teacher.
