    classroom theme

    this past year, I used a bug theme. I covered my door with blue paper for the sky and green for grass then stuck bug cut outs and flowers all over. I used a dynamo machine to put each students name on a bug. The caption read "don't bug us we're learning". I used the overhead projector to enlarge an ant pattern and used this for my days of the week. I did the same thing with a caterpillar pattern and this was used for my months of the year. I also stuck cursive alphabet onto large flower cut-outs (for over my chalkboard) with bug cutouts buzzing throughout. I found some very cute bees that I also enlarged for each bulletin board. The captions read, "bee a reader, bee ye kind, buzz into math and bee-uteful work". I also took pictures of eache student during the first days of school. These were displayed under a caption that read worker bees. The teachers loved it but more importantly, the students did.
