    Maggie: I teach 6th, but started in 3rd. Tie your theme into your subject matter. Birds of a feather... using birds and birdhouses; sunflowers are great to begin the year. I kept them all year and made it a seasonal theme. My door said "I picked a little sunshine this year" and had all the student's names on the flowers. I found matching desk tags and Carson Dellosa had an abundance of material to tie in all year. I the fall I had a corn patch with sunflowers around and in December, snow and sunflowers (a cheery winter in my classroom! At my luau at the end of the year... you guessed it... sunflowers. The kids loved it. They could not wait to see what my sunflowers were going to become next.
