Red face Themes in a 4th grade class

Hi all,

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?

Thanks!

I think fourth grade is still a perfect grade to have a theme. My former team teacher does a theme each year with her fifth graders and they love it. You can check out my ideas here for inspiration:

Grrrr-try it again. The pages have been 'sticking' today when I try to load them. Maybe too many people are trying to hop on? Let me know if you still can't get on tonight.

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.

I'd love to hear more themes. I don't have one, and I'm not convinced I "need" one, but I think it'll make the year more interesting.
