Peeps! I’m so excited about my new classroom essentials resource, Vanilla Sherbet classroom decor! After many, many years of the same color scheme, I decided it was time for a change.
Because my classroom, with its 30 little inhabitants and all the furniture and materials that comes with that, is feeling cramped, I changed to mostly white and bright colors, as opposed to black with bold colors.
The inspiration came from this little dessert place called Frostbites. They have the most yummy and gorgeous treats made from frozen vanilla custard and the most amazingly brightly colored and delicious icee like sherbet. When my husband and I venture out to grab one of these fantastic treats, I am thrilled just looking at its beauty!
Seriously, who doesn’t want to be surrounded by happiness everyday?!
So with that inspiration and a thirst for change, the vanilla sherbet line was born.
This bundled resource is HUGE and overflowing with décor and essential components for your classroom. The BRIGHT Vanilla Sherbet motif is inviting, kid friendly, clean, crisp and bright.
Alphabet and Phonics Cards
Like the alphabet and phonics cards in my other color options from the previously released classroom essentials series, these cards are beautiful, engaging and resourceful.
The Alphabet and Phonics Cards are a tool for student learning and phonics mastery. Each card is clear, demonstrates proper letter formation, has a gorgeous graphic visual, and displays all phonic rules that make that particular sound.
These alphabet and phonics cards assist students with reading and writing.
Alphabet and Phonics Cards are more than just the alphabet. In all, there are 45 cards! Most importantly, these cards cover all of the phonic rules in K-2 classrooms including long vowels, vowel pairs and irregular spellings. They are a fabulous reference tool.
Chants and rhymes for each card are included in the resource, too!

Numbers & More Numbers!

You guys! I’m obsessed with the number line! It was the first thing I changed and I fell instantly in love!!
Focus Wall Icon Cards
My focus wall is a key reference point in the room. I don’t like the headers to take up a lot of room. However, it is important to use them and have them easily identifiable. These eye-catching pops of color are like candy on the wall!
