Ladybug Inspiration

This was the year for ladybugs!  This classic color combo of black, red, and green is a favorite classroom theme.  If you love polka dots, this is the collection for you!

This adorable ladybug classroom was created by Andrea McKinney of Ohio.  Andrea used the Lovely Ladybug collection from Schoolgirl Style with her 6th grade students.  Andrea teaches Language Arts, Social Studies, and Reading.

Andrea explained that when you have to spend 7+ hours in a room, you want it to feel like home!  She also included her young daughter in the decorating and she LOVED it!  They were able to find so many items that coordinated with her theme including a cute polka dot fabric that was used as liners in her Longaberger baskets.

Andrea loves her classroom and I do too!

Enjoy the tour!

  1. Thank you for your wonderful ideas. I started a theme apporach in 2011, but not with decorations. It was more about motivation. I teach in SA, only black children from a poor community and it is very difficult. Learners and parents are not motivated and a lot of our children stay with grandparents that are still illiterate.
    Our schools are not renovated by the department, and are mostly in poor condition as there are not always funds to decorate, or renovate. All of that comes out of our own pockets. Our classrooms are not as nice as the pictures that I have seen. I have wondered though, how do your learners copy from the board, because some of the learners have their backs to the board???

    • Hi Celeste! I arrange my seats so that everyone is able to see the board. I also did a lot of my teaching on a portable white board – I would have the children sitting on the floor, gathered around myself and the whiteboard. I rarely used the big board in my room.

  2. Love this! What brand is the black and the white borders? Is the black and white polka dot background on the doors wrapping paper?

  3. That is actually fabric on the doors. Since lockdown drills are becoming a monthly drill, I didn’t want to scramble to always find something to staple up to the door. I wanted my door to serve two purposes: appear welcoming and for the outside not to be able to see in to my classroom. However, a co worker had a great idea of getting a shower board cut from Lowes so that it was a more protective barrier.

  4. Very nice room! Is your initial “m” hand painted or is it scrapebook paper? Thanks in advance!

  5. On the picture where it says Homework, do the days of the week and subject labels and no school labels come with the complete set of Ladybug Theme? Are these editable or are they labels on top of the decorative papers that are in the complete set?
