    I was in the same boat last year. I taught a K-1 split. I did go with a theme. I think it kept the kids involved and interested. I did the "Home on the Range" farming theme. I made a bulliten board display of a farm yard out of material but it can easily be done with poster board. The bulliten board stayed up all year but things were added seasonally or monthly. Like they added turkey handprints at thanksgiving. Our class jobs were are farm titled. I was the farmer. The student of the week was the ranch hand, the person who kept the hallway tidy was the Boot Wrangler the person who took the attendance and hotlunch order was the Pony Express. You can get paper plate shaped like animals for them to do writing samples on. The possibilities are endless. The only real cost to me was the material for the bulliten board but if you did it with poster board that would be cheap. I did have lots of house plants in the room and checkered tableclothes on the tables etc but that is all added over time or is stuff you have at home. Good luck!
