    Patriotic Theme
    By Krissy

    *Check the local dollar stores, I found tons of red/white/blue things there to decorate my room for my hero summer theme. Many of these would work well for a patriotic theme, too. I found a calendar with pictures of government, American landmarks, etc. for $1 they made great posters when cut apart.

    *I hung patriotic (red/white/blue) kites from my ceiling.

    *Jobs board: Mine was "Heroes Help Out!" But, if you want something strictly patriotic, I would use stars and write the jobs on clothespins.

    *Print out small banners with a Print Shop program that say the phrases to some famous songs like "Oh Beautiful for Spacious Skies" and "My Country Tis of Thee" and hang these above your chalkboards all around the room.

    *Have each student make a windsock to decorate your room at the beginning of school. Roll up a piece of blue construction paper and glue white stars on it, hang strips of red and white tissue from the bottom of it.

    *I hope this helps a little, I really am stuck in a "hero" mode from the summer. If you were looking for something more specific, feel free to e-mail me back.
