    Bug Fun:

    Good work: "Bee-utiful Work" with bees;

    OR "Works that Glows!" with little lightning bugs

    Daily Info: "The Buzz" or "Look What's Buzzing"

    Jobs: "Worker Bees" or "Classroom Jobhive" with
    a big beehive with jobs on it.

    Welcome Board: "Look who's buzzing into ___'s room!"

    Material: Find colorful bug fabric to use as backgrounds.

    *READING CORNER: Put up green paper around the corner, and glue large silk leaves all over it. Glue tiny plastic bugs around. Put a couple of plants. "Buzz on in to read a good book!"

    *WREATH: I made a little wreath for the door that said "BEE YOUR BEST!" and I glued plastic bugs all over it.

    *MAGNETS: I hot-glued big plastic bugs to clothespins and used big magnets. These were very handy for the boards to hang stuff or post memos.

    *COMPUTER BACKGROUNDS: Put closeup pictures of bugs on your computer background(s).

    *NAMETAGS: Use clipart of giant leaves with little ladybugs on them. Put students names on and laminate.

    BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT: For a class goal, put up a large paper leaf and give students a designated goal for how many ladybugs they must earn to be stuck on the leaf. For individual behavior, put up a bulletin board with a big net or a drawing of a net. Put every students bug in the net. Make a desginated spot for students to move for each rule infraction... for example, a warning means you move your bug to the edge of the net, the next level would move to a leaf and so on. This would be title "CAUGHT BEING GOOD!"

    CEILING DECORATIONS: There are a lot of big bugs, butterflys, bees, etc. that you could get to hang from your ceiling.

    CLASSROOM NEWSLETTER: Call it "News from the Hive" or "The Weekly Buzz"
