I love changing things up now and then in my teaching and transforming my classroom for the day. I have done a couple of transformations in the past, and I try to add at least one new one each school year. I have been holding onto some superhero party decorations from my daughter’s birthday party a couple of years ago, and I knew that eventually I wanted to use them for something in my classroom. I started brainstorming ideas and came up with the activities for our Superhero Day.

This was such a fun day with tons of learning going on. Prior to our Superhero Day, I sent out a letter letting the students know that we would be having a Superhero Day, and they could wear superhero themed shirts if they would like. I also purchased a couple of things off of Amazon to add to our classroom including capes and masks for each student, a backdrop, blue and red plastic tablecloths, and some decorations. It took me hardly any time at all to prep our classroom for the day. I turned on some superhero themed music to add to the superhero theme.
When the students came into the classroom, they had a yellow piece of construction paper and a Superhero Coloring page on their desks. They colored the page, folded their paper, and created a folder to keep all of their completed activities in for the day. While they were working, I passed out their capes and masks.
Next, each of the students figured out their Superhero name and created their ID cards. They loved figuring out what their superhero name would be.
I explained to the students that they were at a Superhero Training Camp. They would have to work to earn their superpowers. Throughout the day, the students rotated through stations to earn their superpowers.
- Super Silence – Silent e
- Super Manipulation – Making Words
- Super Strength – Exercises
- Super Intelligence – Math Fact Practice
- Super Creativity – Writing
- Super Decoding – Mystery Codes
They were so engaged and didn’t even realize that they were still completing so many academic tasks. We also discussed some superhero vocabulary and completed vocabulary activities.
I cannot even tell you how much fun this day ended up being. So many people shy away from classroom transformations because they get overwhelmed. It is amazing what some Dollar Tree tablecloths can do to add to the excitement and engagement for the day. “This was the best day ever!” was heard throughout the day.
