    I started the year with a rainforest theme. My students loved it and begged me to keep some of the decorations up even after we were finished. I did an attendance chart with a lion on it. Names are put up each day and I used the caption "Who's Li-on around in the K room?" I hung 12 bananas on a bulletin board and added a monkey. The months of the year are on the bananas and I added students' names on the bananas. The caption is "Go Bananas! Its Your birthday!" I have a safari character with binoculars on another board and it says "Searching for good work". I put student names on monkeys and used the caption "Look who's hanging out in the K-1-2 room. I stwisted brown crepe paper for vines and added some silk leaves and it looked super. I hung vines aound the door and made palm trees out of cardboard. I bought a few cheap kites made like toucans and hung them from the ceiling. In my reading corner I hung a large fish net from the ceiling. I added leaves and vines and crepe paper vines. I hung monkeys, snakes and birds from the net and used cardboard to make the thatched roof of a hut. We call it our reading hut. One of our favorite books was The Great Kapok Tree. I found a readers theatre for this and the students made masks and read the story. Good luck and have fun!
