    Western Theme
    By Virginia

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Sherry, every year I plan a western theme for my students -- in fact, I have successfully used this theme for kindergarten, first, and second grades. I like to make "Wanted Posters" for each of my students to display at open house. I glue a snapshot at the top of each poster and then type in reasons why each student is wanted.

    I might type that Johnnie is wanted for his neat printing and great listening skills in class. Lori is wanted for being kind and considerate to her classmates. I list positive attributes for each child on their individual Wanted Poster. In fact, I have enlisted the help of the entire class to list positive statements about their classmates.

    Parents and students LOVE these posters. In fact some of my former students (now in high school!) will come back and visit me and share memories of their wanted posters!

    At the bottom of each poster I sign my name as "sheriff". Good luck to you and your "cowpokes" -- have a mighty fine school year!
