    I am a 3rd grade teacher. I am thinking of doing a disney theme.

    Anyone do this before or have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I would be weary of Disney as a theme since it's commerical.

    I made posters one year for my high schoolers with over-used words and synonyms for them, and they had Disney characters on them. So Bad was the Malificent, Think was Pooh, Good was the Fairy God Mother, etc.

    I love your idea!!! I do know that the Disney company is terrible about unauthorized use of their characters. We had HUGE issues with them at the camp I work with in the summers. How would they find out though?

    yeah they are highly copyrighted. I would suggest maybe a star theme or just a movie them.

    Disney is very touchy about their copyrighted characters. There was a preschool in my area that had the characters painted on the walls and they received a 'cease and desist' order or there would be a law suit. I have no idea how they knew. But they do sell a lot of teacher materials with a Disney theme and that must be OK.
