    I am in need of some good ideas for outside the door to welcome the kids back to school. I know there are tons of commercial products to be purchased but I'm trying not to do that much anymore due to cost and storage space. I would be happy with a cute saying and using die-cut shapes! What do you use and what have you seen other teachers do? Any ideas are appreciated!

    "Welcome to a Beehive of Fun and Learning"
    Cut out die cuts of bees or find them on line. Color yellow or use yellow construction paper. Print names on the bees. Make a beehive out of brown paper. Decorate with your Room number. Cut out some honey pots or find them online. Sometimes you can find the pictures in coloring books and print them out.

    Here's another idea: Beside the phrase "Look Who Just Popped into _ Grade!" , have a poster board cut into the shape of a frying pan and cover it with foil. Have popcorn shapes cut out of white construction paper to write the kids' names on... one for each student.

    Cut out or find die-cuts of t-shirts. Hang them on a string that looks like a laundry line and add a washer and dryer to the display. Then the caption is, "Hangin' out in ___________ grade is loads of fun!
    I used this last year and it turned out really neat. We wore uniforms so I made construction paper uniform shirts to hang on the laundry line.
    I'd post a picture, but I can't post attachments.
    Good Luck!
