    Wild West Theme
    By Mrs. T

    Clip to ScrapBook
       
    This was my classroom theme this year so I've attached some ideas...

    The Tumbleweed Times- newsletter
    Ranch Hands- job chart
    Buffalo Bucks- reward incentives
    Cowchip Compliment Chain
    Reading Corral or Reading Ranch
    Buckaroo Reading Log
    Cowboy Chronicles- column to find out "Bits and pieces of info to make life in the wild west easier to manage"
    "Get the lowdown (can't remember if that's how I spelled it)"- information bulletin board
    The General Store- column to find our "what's happenin' aroung town"
    News from the Ranch- weekly update
    Trail Blazin' Behavior- column in newsletter commending students and volunteers
    Circle the Wagons- column in the newsletter to "find answers to your questions"
    Welcome back bulletin board- photos of kids in cowboy hat with a mustache and bandana around their necks added to "Mrs. Trieger's Most Wanted" posters. The kids added outlaw names like "The Knitting Bandit" to the signs which also included their real names.
    These are some of the ideas I used... Hope it helps.
