    My classroom is set up like a Camping Lodge. The sign on the front door says "Welcome to Mrs. Sarten's Lodge" and on the inside of the door are "Lodge Rules". In the winter we change it to a ski lodge. I use ice chests to hold the books in "Camp Read A Lot" with a tent and small camping chairs in that area. I have flashlights for the kids to use in the tent just for fun. (I teach 3rd grade). I use the hooked idea with "Hooked on Homework". I have sticky lizards on my ceiling and plastic bugs, smokey the bear, etc. all over the room. My bulletin boards are as follows: my discipline board has a canoe for each student with their name on it. In the canoe is 3 oars, 1st oar lost is a warning, 2nd oar is missing a recess, 3rd oar is visit to principals office or calling parents. That board is called "Responsibility Keeps Our Canoe Afloat". I use a cute board at the beginning of the year as a get to know you activity that you might be able to use with Lang. Arts. called "Fishing for Compliments". You fold a piece of construction paper to make a pocket and glue the sides so it will hold notes from other classmates. The "notes" are written on fish die cuts and they have to be a compliment to someone and it has to be in a complete sentence. You could make them underline the verb, etc. as an extra lesson. I have more camping ideas that I have found along the way if you are interested you can email me.
