Superhero Classroom Theme

I really try and listen to my customers in all areas of Schoolgirl Style.  When I get a reoccurring theme request, I want to deliver, however, I love to be different and get excited when I can create a theme that hasn’t been done before.  With that said, if I do get several requests for a theme, you better believe that I want it to be nicer than anything you can currently find on the market.

I am so so so proud of my Superhero classroom theme!  I hope you love it as much as I do!


Behind the Scenes:  I bought the most amazing superhero cape for my husband and had it personalized with his initial.  I thought it would be great to wear on Halloween at school AND to be photographed in my Superhero classroom theme (although he had no idea I was planning to include him in my photo shoot)!  This particular day, Matt was home due to the snowy weather and he spent the day working around the house.  When E’lisa finished the photos, I found Matt and broke the news that he was about to be in my Superhero pictures. Needless to say, he was NOT on board…Matt was covered in paint and, well, not really looking picture perfect.  After some thinking, we all compromised and E’lisa created “action” shots and blurred his image a bit.  We did get a few pictures…see if you can find them in the post below!  Hey, it could have been worse… I could have had him wear tights, right???


How cute are these colorful masks on the lanterns?  I used black construction paper circles and inserted in the eyes of the mask…just looks better that way!:)

LOVE LOVE LOVE  the can inserts!  Use them in plastic cans from Michaels or wrap around aluminum cans to hold your supplies.


I adore the big, bold patterns in this collection…and the BRIGHT colors!


I wanted to create my superhero set without too much clip art…however, I did add some adorable superhero posters.  Add your student’s faces to create a cute display in your classroom.  Your students are sure to LOVE this!

One of my favorite designs in my collection are these really cute Word Wall labels…so colorful and fun!

2014-04-26_0025 2014-04-26_0027


The cape was purchased off of Etsy from Little Hero Capes.  Can you imagine Open House night?  You NEED to wear this!!!


I used a cake pan to hold the cans and supplies on my table.  A cake pan?  I know it’s a little odd, but it worked great and looked really good with this theme!


Who could THAT be???  Is it Superman?


I am loving this stationary set (included in the collection)!  Stationary sets include editable business cards, note cards, thank you cards, personalized stationary, Avery label templates, and monogrammed prints for your desk.


I created these super awesome prints to go along with the collection…


I created a cityscape for the backdrop of my collection.  It was so so easy!  The key to making this look great…don’t measure a thing!  Just cut and don’t over think it!  I know this may be hard for some of you…I can picture those perfectionist teachers pulling out their rulers and measuring tapes right now. 🙂  I suppose you can do that, but I love the whimsical look of this project.  Directions:  1.  Cut large rectangles in various sizes.  I used black bulletin board paper for this.  Glue to the board.  Just eyeball it.  2.  Cut yellow rectangles out of construction paper and just glue on to the black paper to make it look like windows.  Don’t worry about lining it up perfectly either.  Just cut and glue! See?  I told you it was easy!





Cape and cuffs were personalized with Matt’s initial…


Bags were from Oriental Trading.  This would be perfect for independent reading materials OR use for storing your student’s supplies and books (if they don’t have a storage area at their desk).




How about those really cute Superhero Rules above?  I can just see these adorable posters displayed in your classroom!

  1. Oh my goodness!! I am so absolutely in love and so, so confused now about what to do! I am absolutely loving all your ideas. I thought for sure I was going to use the frog theme but I loooove this one! My little learners would love it too. I think after all your themes are out, I’m going to have to pick my top choices and bring show them to my class and have them decide.. I will keep 6 of them next year as I teach a combination TK/K class. Have you thought about creating holiday resource packs to go along with your themes. ei. Superheroes holding Jack O’ Lanterns, wearing Santa hats, chasing leprechauns? 🙂 I’m in awe…

    • You just made my night! I love to hear what people think and honestly, I always feel a little nervous before a reveal…I just hope people like what I’ve done. It makes so happy to know that you really like this and my other products as well! Thank you so much!

      • This is amazing. You are very talented. Can you tell us how did you do the superhero posters with the faces on it. I would love to do this for my kiddos. Great idea!

  2. Gorgeous Melanie! You are so correct in that your collections look nothing like anything out there. Bravo on creating inspiration! I mean that in all sincerity,

    One of the happiest days of my life was the day I walked into my first classroom over 25 years ago. It was a blank canvas just waiting to be colorized and filled with busy little people. Somehow as the years go by some of us lose that excitement and spark. I know one of my favorite times of the year is pre-planning. While everyone else laments about returning to work, I look at it as an opportunity to start fresh and create the stage on which my classroom will run for the year.

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful collections!

    • I was all teary eyed reading this…you “get it.” Decorating is SO much more…it’s about revitalizing yourself and bringing the excitement back into teaching. I plan to write a blog post about this. You said it perfectly. Thank you!!!

  3. I feel corny that I’ve been leaving a comment mostly everyday, but I can’t help it. I will take the cornball award! Decorating for me is a stress reliever. So, with test prep at school the last couple of weeks, I’ve felt overwhelmed. That led me to thinking of how to decorate next year. I saw this theme on another site and I was not completely thrilled. But, I thought of the possibilities. You have made this theme fun and classy. I still can’t choose!

  4. Oh my goodness Melanie! This collection is precious! I can’t help but think about how happy any little boy would be if this were his classroom theme and of course the girls would get into it too!

    • Hi Debbi! I also had a “Samantha Baker” one, but it didn’t show up in the photos. I’m glad someone appreciated my humor! 🙂

  5. Wow! This fall I will have my first classroom ever so I want it to be spectacular but I just can’t decide which collection to use! Every morning I think I’ve found my favorite until the next day!!! Your themes are amazing and I can’t wait to use one of them for my first classroom! 🙂

    • Awe! Thank you, Ariel! Let me know which one you picked out at the end! 🙂

  6. Oh, my stars! I have been checking your site every day since you started “revealing.” I feel like a child walking in on the first day! Makes me giggle! But…now, I’m just confused!! I love this theme, and how perfect is Greg to give this one away!!?? I’m seriously considering sending you pics of my classroom and letting you choose!! Your talent amazes me, Melanie! Thanks so much for sharing your hard work!!

  7. I love this classroom theme. What I like best about your themes is that you have thought about how each one would be implemented, and then made sure every detail was accounted for in the package. Can’t wait to see what theme is next. Having met your Superhero in person, I would have to say he was the only one that could pull this off. Learning in Bliss

  8. I am in L.O.V.E. I tried to do superheroes in my room this year after having frogs for 5 years…it didn’t pan out the way I wanted but this makes me want to try it again next year…. I am so excited about this. I will definitely be watching all your next reveals but I think I know which one will be winning! Amazing!

  9. What a FUN theme! I can see so many kids really loving this classroom decor. It lends it self to so many character building activities. Very nice.

  10. Oh this is just adorable! I especially love the bright colors. They would certainly POP in a classroom. You just keep amazing me. I’m telling you, YOU ARE SOOOOOO CREATIVE!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me yet again! ♥

  11. I fall in love with each new reveal! I should have known better than to think I would not have to create inspiration boards before I make a decision, not to mention wait out the entire reveal. Thank you for sharing your creativity!

  12. I LOVE THIS! This is my next classroom. Too many classrooms are girly and not boy friendly at all. This is a room every kid will love to be a part of!

  13. So cute and colorful! I can just imagine the kids playing superheroes at recess! I have a superhero fan myself and let me tell you, he would LOVE to be in a classroom that looked like this. The color and pattern combinations are fantastic. And your husband is a good sport!

  14. This is BRILLIANT! Our students give us the strength to endure the next day, and they just bright/challenge my way of thinking as a teacher! I would LOVE this giveaway! I know my future students for the next school year would be inspired and feel like superheros that they are in this adorable, inspiring theme! Great work! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  15. Really Melanie, my mind is going into overdrive with your Back to School themes. Love, Love, Love the Supehero Class theme. Especially because I teach an all boys special education class. To me they are all my heros. I can’t wait to get started, but I’m a little perfectionist. Where did you find the superhero comic boader trim? Got to have it ! Keep it up and I can’t wait to see more!


    • Hi Valencia! I thought I bought it from Teacher Created Resources, but I can’t find it now. 🙁

  16. So my last name is Justice and the super hero theme would be perfect for my classroom! What do you think?

  17. This set is AMAZING! Quick question though – I checked the site listed for the borders, but I can’t seem to find the comic/word border that outlines the large cityscape board. Is there another site I should check? I’m loving this theme for next year! I’m filling my cart with goodies! 🙂

    Thanks! Keep up the AWESOME work!

    • Hi Ashley! Guess what? I am going to carry it in my shop! I should have it listed soon! 🙂

  18. Oh. My. Goodness. I am in LOVE!!! I just bought your bright colors pack last year and I have loved it. I wanted my classroom to be bright and happy and it has been. I have to move rooms again next year though….and even though I am not a super heroes fan….somehow you have made me fall in love with this theme. I am going to have to buy it and I can’t stop thinking about super heroes! This theme has so much that you can do with making kids excited about learning. I just can’t wait! I hope I do the theme justice and can’t wait to reveal it to my co-workers! 🙂 (I’ve been trying to wait until payday…but I don’t think I can wait that long…I need to start playing NOW!)

    • Brooke, I LOVE it! I am the same way…I never wanted superheroes, now it’s one of my absolute favorites! My best friend is doing this one too!:)

  19. I have been logging on every day to see the “new reveal” of the day. It has been SO much fun to watch all the themes being introduced. I thought I was hooked on the Rainbow Chalkboard, but something keeps drawing me back to the SuperHeros. SuperHeros was not even on my radar, but now I can’t stop thinking about this theme. I kept waking up last night and thinking about how I would decorate my room with this. Thanks for sharing your talents and for keeping us all inspired! I’m excited for summer vacation, but I think I’m even MORE excited to get in my room in August and DECORATE!!!

    • I felt the same way, Dawn! Then, after I created it, it’s one of my most absolute favorite themes EVER!

    • I also was set on the rainbow chalkboard theme since I saw it on Kinder Kraze last year … and then I saw this! I can’t stop thinking about it! I think I am going to try out the Superhero theme this year, Hoping mine turns out as adorable as your set up is in the pics!!

  20. I absolutely love this! I was hired 2 days before the first day of school this year, and I had NO TIME to plan and prepare a themed room. Since I know where I’ll be in September already, I can begin planning! So excited for Superhero Kindergarten!

  21. LOVE this! I’m going to teach 4th grade next year and thought about a super hero theme, but didn’t know if it was too “babyish” for 4th graders….will definitely be using some of your stuff to create a SUPER learning space!


  22. I just purchased this theme!!! Squealing!!! I’m so excited! I do have a question…what font did you use? The block multi-colored one? I want the editable items to match! Thanks for your reply!

  23. OMG! I am in love!!! When I found this theme for next year I was so excited to get started!!! I’m trying to decide what is most practical, should I get the full set or buy a bunch of things separately. It doesn’t look like everything is in the set, like the superhero photos, name tags or rules- am I right?

    • Everything is in the full includes the rules and the nametags! 🙂

      • What about the superhero photos? I bought the full collection, but the superhero photos aren’t there.

        • Hi Brooke!
          Can you explain what you are looking for? I’m not sure if I know what you mean. 🙂

          • The little superhero cutouts where you can put a picture of their face on the body or they can draw a face? Does that make more sense?

  24. Would this be appropriate for 3rd graders? I love the idea of superheros, but I don’t want them to feel like they’re too old for it. What do you think? I love all the colors and patterns.


    • Hi Sarah! I think this would be one of the best grades for this theme! So much fun! 🙂 ~Melanie

  25. love this theme! i did the primary apple theme this past year and it was a huge hit. curious if you think the superhero theme might be too old for preschool??

    • Not at all, Shannon. This theme is SO universal…love it for every single grade level!!! 🙂

  26. I am so excited to find your shop!!!! I am so wore out with the same sets every year. I can’t wait to get started on my own superhero classroom! One question, is the bulletin board border included in the set?

  27. Love this theme!!! I will have all boys next year in first grade & this would be perfect for them. How much does this theme cost??

  28. I too am very excited to use this theme in my classroom, but your photos look like they come out of a magazine! Do you have any pointers for amateurs like me that will help me make my classroom look like something out of a magazine! Thanks so much for creating this theme!

  29. Hello…I wanted to know which theme is your favorite for upper elementary grades…I teach 5th grade…I used the sports theme for two years now and would like to change…all your ideas are amazing and I can’t decide. Also, have you thought about a college theme? It’s never too early:)

  30. Oh my! I wish this was around a couple years ago when I did this theme in my room. So cute!

  31. I love this product and purchased the entire collection! One question… on the editable nameplates, the part that says “My name is…” is showing in a different font (Ariel, I believe). How can I fix this? Thanks!

  32. I love this theme! I teach 6th grade ELA and I think this is perfect for older kids. It’s not babyish at all and everyone loves superheroes! I hate when some middle school classrooms are so plain and boring. Not my classroom, that’s for sure. 🙂 I can’t wait to get started decorating my Super Classroom!!

  33. I can’t wait to get my roomcall superhero ready. I can’t seem to find the mask on Oriential Trading. Do you remember the name of them or have a direct link to them?

  34. I too can not find the mask on Oriental Trading. Did you use the 10″ lanterns in the picture? I LOVE your superhero theme!!!! It is adorable and I think my Kindergarten kiddos will love it. Also wanted to know the size of the superhero poster that you can put the kids picture in? Thanks

  35. I love this theme and used it all last year we even play the superman theme before coming to the rug for morning meeting. My students each found their superpower which coordinated with their table ( either the amazing table fantastics table ect. I would so recomend the theme for any grade I used it with my k class and they really rose to the occasion ( with my stuff though I admit most of my stuff was handdrawn and didnt survive 🙁 but I am so set to use this again. I love your ideas style girl and thank you so much for the share

  36. This is absolutely precious–talk about an encouraging atmosphere. The kids would feel empowered to do anything.

    Have you ever considered including behavior charts or classroom job graphics? I think that would be a really valuable addition.

    Thanks again!

  37. So .. when my principal announced this theme for this coming school year… I wanted to just ..wilt… how is this going to work… I have been looking over your site and feel like … I may find superpowers afterall! 🙂 THanks so much for the inspiration!!

  38. I love your ideas about the superhero theme. I want to know how to make the pictures of the kids with the superhero body sheets you did. I want to do that on my birthday wall and put the student birthday on the page so how do you / or where did you get the graphics for those?

  39. Hey Melanie I have bought two of your collections previously. The Rockstart and the Chalkboard. I am pumped for Superhero stuff this year!!!!! I was wondering you ever thought about putting out an editable lesson plan book to go along with your collection??? If you do I would for sure love one!! Keep up the great work

  40. I love your creations! I wanted to do the Super Hero theme years ago, but couldn’t find anything. So cute! I am now doing my classroom theme in Board Games. I teach gifted so I don’t have things like homework, desk labels, etc. My decorations are mostly in centers and bulletin boards. I have noticed that this is becoming a very popular theme on Pinterest. I realize that you couldn’t use the actual games for copyright purposes, but maybe some sort of generic design?

    I’m thinking of doing a Harry Potter theme next year. Again, copyright would be a problem, but maybe a generic wizard theme could work?

    Thanks for the great designs!

  41. Melanie,

    I love this theme! I purchased the Full Collection and I am so excited. I was wondering what fonts you used though….most specifically for the Star Number Line part of the set. I printed out numbers 1 – 30 with the intention of adding more numbers (need to go to 120) but realized that I don’t know what font you used. Can you help?

    Thanks in advance!

  42. I love the Superhero theme!! This is going to be our first year that Kindergarten is going to do the same theme and we are all super excited Can you tell me the font that you used for the star number line so that I can make more numbers? Thanks for all your hard work!!


  43. love the Superhero theme!! This is going to be our first year that Kindergarten is going to do the same theme and we are all super excited Can you tell me the font that you used for the star number line so that I can make more numbers? Thanks for all your hard work!!


  44. The bags you purchased from Oriental Trading, were they purchased with the words on them or did you use an applique?

  45. I absolutely love this theme and I am so excited about using it.

    I do have one question though. Can you please tell me what font you used for your number line? I want to keep going past 30 and I would like to keep the same one you used.

    Thank you.
