I have been debating using a camping theme for the next year and I really like some of these ideas here- thanks for sharing. Would it be possible for me to also get a copy of the logo you created. I really appreciate it. Tink898@msn.com
I'd really like to have the logo also! I am a first-year teacher, teaching first grade this fall. My son (who will be in second grade) asked me to do a fishing theme in my room. I can't find much on fishing, but have had some luck with the camping idea. I love everyone's ideas here. I'd really like to get the logo also, if that's possible. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone has any more ideas on room decor, I'd love to have them! I've tried to find a camping or woodsy 'scene-setter' from the party stores, but haven't located one. I will have a small room, and may not have room for a tent, so I'm going to have to be very creative.
I too have looked for a scene-setter but have not found one.
This teacher's room has a nice camp look to it that does not involve a tent or take up much space. You could easily fold up the chairs if you needed to use the space for something else.
I found a hiking theme bulletin board set at www.teacherstorehouse.com. It has a religious theme, but one could 'cut around' the sayings without affecting the characters. You might check it out - they have a lot of different sets.
For everyone who is waiting for my CAMP LEARNALOT logo...
My computer is out of commission right now (I only have my laptop), so I can't send the logo to everyone yet. As soon as it is working again, I will send it! Sorry for the wait!! I will also resend it to the ones that I already sent it to...I don't think any of you got it because that's when the computer started messing up!
In all my LONG YEARS of teaching I've never done a theme for the beginning of the year. However, I'm quite intrigued by the camp theme. A few weeks ago I found the following website which describes Mrs. Newingham's Typing Camp for their school's third graders. I think I'm going to pursue that with my third grade team and media specialist. Check this out. It might be a great addition to your camp theme:
I've done a camp/hike theme for four years. If you go to the back to school and room tour pages, you can see pictures of things. I have some downloads too. But, beware...we are changing webhosts soon and the site might be down for 24-48 hours in the near future. http://www.smithsroom.com
Also, this site has a camping set that I bought that can be used for making all sorts of worksheets, decorations, etc. http://countryclipart.com
