    I decided to do this too!!! I teach third and have come up with some of these ideas (mostly from this board lol....scroll down and look on other pages for more ideas)

    My Welcome board is also Racing Into Third Grade. I always have the kids write a paragraph about what they want to learn in third grade. I made race car stationary on the computer for them to write on and got race car cutouts from the teacher store to put their name on and then they can attach their sheet to the car to hang it up.

    My Helper board is "The Pit Crew" I have always used a pocket chart for this to make it easier to move the names from week to week. I got race car stickers to put on the little cards for the pocket chart (it is a very small chart with little pockets on it...originally designed to be a behavior chart for pulling cards)

    My reading corner has no name, but I did get a cool black rug with white checks all around the outside edge. I also got some old tires, and my hubby washed and polished them. I made some pillows to put in the middle for kids to sit in and read. I got black and white checkered contact paper to put on the back of my bookcases and file cabinets by the reading corner.

    I got a racing bulletin board from Carson Delosa called Rev Up Your Writing. It is perfect for those tired words that kids always use. I got some great matching border to go with it too.

    I cant wait to hit Walmart and see what they have and also hit the party store to see what they have as well,

    Hope this helped. Good luck. Post any other great ideas you find too!
