Create Classroom Panda-monium!

Before this school year ends, you should spend some time thinking about next year. I know, you're counting the days. But everything you can accomplish this spring will make the chaos of back-to-school that much easier to manage.  

Are you thinking about changing your classroom decor? If so, consider creating a little PANDA-MONIUM! I've been busy making the most adorable PANDA products. Take a peek ...

Begin with a PANDA style welcome.
In this product you will find every letter of the alphabet on a separate pennant, allowing you to spell out the welcome of your choice. The vowels are repeated on pennants of the opposite color so that you can create a colorful pattern. There are panda pennants and plain pennants to put at the beginning and ending of your message, and/or to separate words. 

Also included are small pennants to use for word wall headers. Each small pennant has the upper and lower case letters.

There are editable frames for words to be added to the word wall and editable pennants for adding students' names or pictures.

Add alphabet and color posters to the PANDA-monium:
They come in 2 sizes; full letter page and 1/2 page. Also supplied are color posters, panda-style.
Create more PANDA-monium with Number Posters. They feature cardinal and ordinal numbers with numerals, number words, ten frames, and tally marks.
Classroom PANDA-monium continues with Math Concepts. These 43 posters provide visual reminders of math concepts in numbers and operations, geometry, and measurement.
There is more PANDA-monium with these Math Word Wall components:
• alphabet headers
• 243 vocabulary words
• from Splash Math and CCSS
• most with graphics to enhance under-standing
• color coded for grades K-2
• editable word cards
Put your passion for PANDAS on your class calendar.  Calendar Icons provide everything you need for daily calendar time, including 5 complete sets of date cards.  Mix those cards to create patterns on the calendar, then challenge your class to identify the pattern and predict the next card. 
No classroom PANDA-monium would be complete without these Classroom Signs:
  • Nut free classroom
  • Fire drill procedures (editable)
  • Storm drill procedures (editable)
  • A dot is a lot (glue use)
  • Be a PANDA Student (traits of successful students)
  • Our Travel Plans (how students get to school) clip chart
  • Our Birthdays clip charts
Every classroom needs some parameters. Establish them with these PANDA-monium rules posters. There are 23 rules from which to choose and 5 bathroom rules; all perfect for display.

Stuff your pockets with pandas to display classroom jobs.  This file is editable, allowing you to personalize the student responsibilities in your classroom.

Create a Little Panda-monium in your classroom!  Editable product to post your classroom jobs.:
A behavior clip chart can help to create a paws-itively peaceful classroom atmosphere. This product contains everything you need to make a clip chart.
Combine the behavior clip chart with brag tags.  This product provides 42 brag tags in 3 categories: behavior, academics, and special events.  It also has an editable file, allowing you to personalize brag tags for your students.

Finally, you can save some money by getting all of these products in the PANDA-monium Bundle. The bundle is currently on sale!
