Have you seen these before? I’ve used them for a few years now and I love them!
They’re called Scene Setters…they’re these huge vinyl mural things that people use for parties.
And they are a wonderful way to add some color to your class, hide an unattractive area, or coordinate your room colors overall!
This ocean one is my favorite and has worked well with my blue classroom in the past (in two different classrooms).
This past year, I used the scene setter to cover the part above my windows…I have 6 windows with these weird, white tops, like this:
The sad thing is those white parts used to be glass as well, many years ago. That must have been so beautiful!
Anyhow, with the scene setter, the window looks like this instead:
Here are the six windows all together with the scene setters. I just hot glued them to the top…
I guess it’s kind of hard to tell now with the room all packed up, but it made a big difference in the color scheme!
I also used the scene setter in my closet where I store my math games. I think I have mentioned before how I removed the closet doors, so I could have an extra space to store games and manipulatives. Plus, with the doors off, I have to be neat and not hide any messes!
This is how the closet looks now, with the brick exposed:
But this is how it looked with the scene setter earlier this year:
As attached as I am to my ocean scene setter, I’m going to try something new next year, as I will be changing my color scheme to something new. I’m a bit nervous about the change, but we’ll see how it goes!
Have you used scene setters in your classroom before?
