Hello fellow teachers! This is my first posting to the forum. I have been teaching for over 15 years. I have been on maternity leave since December, and I really need some ideas from all of you to boost my creativity. I teach gifted students in grades 1-5. I would like to implement a "city" classroom theme this year. I have already made "signs of success" like "Kids at Work," "Stop and Read," and a few street signs, but I would love to hear what ideas many of you have. I really want to make a skyline of buildings etc. with the students the first week. I have seen such great ideas posted here. I look forward to your replies. Thanks for your help!
