Hi! I am going to be a first year teacher and I was looking for a theme for my first grade class. I love all of these ideas! Could I possibly get the logo, too? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much!
I don't have a picture of my word wall unfortunately and I've taken it down already for the summer. Bummer... And I don't have a title for it but maybe I should. I'll have to give that some thought
On my door I made a big sign out of large poster board - I covered it with contact paper that I got at Wal-mart that looks like wood. Then in big black letters I have "Welcome to Our Cabin". I hot glue fake grass at the bottom and then have some woodsy animals that I add at the bottom. You could also use "Welcome to Mr./Mrs. _________'s (grade level) cabin."
The birthday chart is another one that I am working on this summer. No ideas yet - maybe I'll get some ideas from this site.
I thought about that, but I am really limited on space so I thought I would design a poster instead.Maybe cabins? Bees- The Buzz about Birthdays! Mrs. Smith's website uses jars and bugs. Here is the link: http://www.smithsroom.com/our.room.htm
You can get some sticks and tie them together at the top and then interweave orange, red and yellow cellophane between to make the flames of a campfire. You can even get some sand and rocks to put around and under it - I've seen it and it's adorable for circle time.
