Are there teachers out there who change the theme of their rooms yearly? For a few years I used a modified 'bee' theme. This past year I used 'wild about 4th grade'...a jungle theme.
Since I have been out of school for 3 days...I've had a break and I'm thinking about next year. I love the owls from kpm doodles and plan to use them in an owl theme. 'Who's Reading' is the idea I have for sharing AR points.
I have a tree where each student will have an owl. For every 10 AR points students will get a bead to put on a chain which will hang from their owl (pictures to follow this fall). The chain & beads are theirs at the end of school. I had a few students wear theirs at the end of this school year.
