    thanks for the ideas.... and I look forward to more of your ideas...

    unfortunately we change teachers every 2 years so we can't use the teahers names

    Our center allows us to name our own classrooms. I am the Busy Bees (3 year ods), we have the Space Cadets ( preK), the Little Ducklings and PooH Corner (toddlers), Jungle Cubs (4 year olds), Bouncing Baby Bumblee Bees (infants). Other names we've had are Friendly Fish, Happy Hoppers, Monkey Shines . . .

    Pick a name that will work with the items you love to focus on, or the items that you decorate your room with, or something like that. Then it will match you.

    You might pick a common concept and use that

    Shapes: circle, triangle, square
    Colors: red, yellow, blue
    science: animal, vegetable, mineral (stretching, I know)
    insects: bees, ladybugs and caterpillars
    pets: dogs, cats, fish
    manners: please, thank you, you're welcome

    ]though I am an ECE and not a teacher....


    ECE = Early Childhood Educator? since when is that not a teacher? ECE s are definitely teachers in my book!

    Pick a theme & have them all match.

    I kind of like the Jellybeans. You could be Jellybeans, Lollipops, and Gumdrops or something.

    I also like animal names--you could do jungle animals, sea animals, or desert animals.

    Or outer space--Shooting stars, astronauts, and flying saucers (okay, I'm running out of ideas!).
