Are you as obsessed with Open House as I am?? It is literally my favorite thing in the whole world! I think it goes back to the days when I would help my mom, who taught first grade for 35 years, get her room all beautified for Open House back in the 80's!
Since I started teaching 17 years ago, I have always had a theme for Open House. For a few years I did the ocean, then I did garden and bugs, and then I stumbled upon the Rainforest about 8 years ago, and OMG!! It is AMAZING!! I have tweaked and changed it over the years, but it is hands down my favorite Open House theme ever, mostly because my kids go wild for it and they learn so so much!!
Here are some pictures of last year's Rainforest transformation...
Yup!! The rainforest literally threw up in my room! I love it!!

I also have my companion Rainforest Fun! Math Literacy Centers available as a companion to my Art and Writing Unit, to extend the rainforest fun just a little bit further! :)
Thanks for checking out my rainforest ideas! I hope you all have a wonderful Open House this year, whatever theme you choose to do! It's a such a memorable experience for our students, isn't it?? :)
