I've finally decided on a theme for my room after thirteen years of teaching! In the past I was a cow fanatic and had some cow decor (not enough to "cow up" the room). After many years loving cows, I starting adding owls. Last year my board read "Who's in the Mood for Learning?" Who - Owl and Mood - Cow. As you can see I couldn't let the cow bit go...
Well I've decided to slowly revamp my room and do it all in stars! I even plan to put some glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. If it wasn't for the fire marshall, I would have sight words on the ceiling too. I've always wanted to secure a bunch of high frequency words to the ceiling and make a game of turning out the lights and shining a flashlight on the words. When my daughter gets older I might do this in her room!
I am so excited! I will post pictures as the transformation occurs.
Next year I want to make goodie bags that read, "First Grade All Star." I will have oodles of star stickers on the tag. I love that stars are so accessible so I can easily find decorations to continue the theme.
Some possible catch phrases:
You are STARting First Grade!
You shine in First Grade.
Shining First Grade Stars
STARt Reading Every Day to be a Star Reader!
STAR time (independent reading-Stop Talking and READ!)-Not sure if I like this one...because it is great to talk about books.
T-Try their Best
I would love feedback and ideas ... anything cute and related to STARS.
