Today’s the day for many students across the country to go back to school. We wish summer could last forever, but fall is beautiful here on the Gulf Coast as well, and Labor Day weekend gives us something to look forward to. For all of you teachers who have the Back to School blues, why not take the beach with you? We found some really cute ideas for decorating your classroom with a “Goin’ to the Beach” theme! Check out this adorable 1st grade classroom from Teaching Happily Ever After:

Here are some cute beachy ideas for bulletin boards and charts from Miss Kindergarten:

We hope you keep a little sunshine in your lives even while you’re at school, and keep us in mind for those Fall Break and Labor Day vacation plans. Goin’ to the Beach is the perfect autumn getaway, with warm sun and cool night breezes, and a much smaller crowd than summertime. We’d love to have you here.

Have a great 2012-2013 school year!
