I am moving to 4th after teaching 1st for the last 4 years. I am very excited, but I was wondering about classroom themes... Do 4th grade classrooms have themes? I had an ocean theme last year in my room... Anyone have great ideas?
I did the sports theme also. To give you a little more info... you can find sports theme stuff from: Really Good Stuff, Oriental Trading and Party City. The first day we made pennants, team names, and acrostics for TEAM. Teamwork was a constant theme of everything we did especially behavior. For behavior chart they got strikes 1, 2, 3, your out! Also, football to help reach a goal...10yards for everyone doing something imparticular and they get a class reward when they get a touchdown. It's endless what you can do with it.
