Class Name Question

tiff93722 posted:
I was offered a new teaching position where I work and I accepted it! I will now be teaching preschool! I have all summer to prepare my classroom which is currently a blank slate. Each teacher usually comes up with a cute name for the class. While looking for supplies I found this really cute monster set of cut outs, boarders, etc. Since my last name starts with the letter "L" I thought it would be cute if we were Mrs. L***'s Little Monsters. Do you think parents would be ok with that class name? I wouldn't want anyone to be offended. Any thoughts, opinions?

Well, DS attended preschool at 3 and 4 and since he goes to one run by a church, they wouldn't allow Little Monsters as a theme. Even if they are "cute", they avoid anything that could be "scary". I will admit that my DS has never really liked monsters so he probably wouldn't want to be in a room decorated with them. But that is hard to say without seeing the actual decorations. I think I would look at a different theme/class name. What age kids will you have in your class?

I think it's cute. They're made for a classroom, right? So someone else thought it was a cute way to decorate a classroom :)

I thinkit's cute too.
A lot of the characters on Sesame Street are monsters- Elmo, Telly, Zoe, Rosita, etc. and they aren't scary!

Yes even though they are called monsters they resemble more of the Seasame Street characters, not scary at all. The whole class isn't decorated with it either, just one main bulletin board and a few other things (like cubbies, name hooks, etc).

I think it is really cute and it wouldn't offend me at all. BUT, I can just see the one mom who says "Are you calling my kid a monster?"

I think it's cute. I also think that maybe it there were kids who were afraid of monsters and then came to your classroom and saw how cute and friendly they are, they might get over it. Also, at Little Gym the group DD was in was called the Beasts, which I didn't like. I much prefer monsters over beasts.

Go for it, I think it would be cute! I refer to my child as a monster at times, so I definitely would not be offended.

I like little monkeys. My friend once told me that everyone she knows calls their kid a little monkey at one time or another, if not a regular nickname. Ladybugs might be a little feminine for boys IMHO, lol.
