    Follow the Yellow Brick Road
    By appledust

    Clip to ScrapBook
    You could put characters from the story on a bulletin board. The characters could be skipping on a yellow brick road.
    The caption could be.....
    Follow the Yellow Brick Road to __ Grade!
    OR....We're Off to See __ Grade!
    OR....a picture of Dorothy with caption....
    There's No Place Like __ Grade!
    You could decorate your classroom with hot air balloons, lollipops, a bicycle, and farm stuff.
    Other Ideas:
    Learning Center with Picture of Scarecrow --
    Caption: If I only had a brain!
    Classroom Helper Chart with Picture of Tin Man --
    Caption: Heart-y Helpers
    Classroom Rules with Picture of Lion --
    Caption: Be courageous and follow the rules!
    You could extend the yellow brick road all the way around your classroom.
    Lunch Menu with Picture of Munchkins --
    Caption: Munch on Lunch
    Idea for Displaying Students' Work --
    (Include a picture of Toto in a basket.)
    Caption: Dog-gone Good Work!
    Idea for Instruction --
    Use a wand to gently tap students before calling on them for answers. (just like Glenda, the good witch)
    Reading Area -- cardboard box decorated like a house / Place a tornado above it, or better yet, make a tornado in a bottle using a two-liter bottle and tornado tube (available at teacher supply stores).
    I'm not sure what grade you teach.
    I hope these ideas will be helpful to you.
