    I have used smiles as my theme for the beginning of the year before. I put smile faces with the student names outside the classroom with the title "Let's start this year smiling." I then take pictures on the first day of each child smiling and one of the whole class including myself. I have the pictures developed and replace the smiley faces with their smiling faces and have the class photo blown up to an 11 x 14 at Walgreen's for I think about $7 or 8. This class photo is then hung on the window of our classroom door for the rest of the year.
    I always get doubles and create a class book with the second photo. Each student gets a page to write about themselves, illustrate it and attach the photos. I then have the book laminated
    for the students to read. My fifth grade students love reading their book and the books from past students.
    For some of the bulletin board themes in the room, I have used, "Get happy about (math, reading, etc.)", "______________ makes me smile", "If you're happy and you know it, (read a book, write a story, etc.)"
