    Hello All
    I am setting up my first classroom and I will be teach fifth grade. I have been playing with some ideas for a classroom theme. So far I have
    explorers(table hroups could be tied into the theme, id have an exploer or two of the week where the kids would share a poster about themselves, I can also tie in the names of classroom jobs etc)
    roadtrip of the us
    famous authors/ writers/books
    art(the school is an arts amd science magnet school)

    any opinions or other ideas

    Try googling "school girl style." It's a teacher decorating blog and is wonderful. She has lots of pictures of different themes. I'm doing the polka dot and daisy theme that she has.

    My favorite 5th grade theme is Americana. It ties in with their social studies so well and there are lots of materials available.

    Great ideas! This year, to keep it simple, I'm doing mostly a color theme-red, teal and brown. I'm throwing a few sock monkeys to keep it fun. I might do America in the future, though-that's a fantastic idea. I really want to dig deep into the politics behind colonization and the constitutional convention, and that would be perfect.

    Ok, Upsadaisy. You got my brain rolling with your America theme idea, and I'm going with it. You rock.

    I am sticking with Americana as I have in previous years-- with a touch of space. :) I incorporate elements from road trips I have taken over the years.
