    Mrs. F's......

    I'm looking for something that will last a few years since I tend to go all out with it. My most recent theme was travel. Mrs. F's Fantastic Travelers. It's been fun, but I'm in need of a change.

    So far I'm leaning towards Mrs. F's Fabulous Cafe.... I feel like I need an F name in there but might just use Mrs. F's Cafe....

    Ideas? Help! :)

    Do you have to go with an 'F' word? :eek:
    There are many themes that go across curriculum that don't necessarily start with 'F':

    Sports (Fans?)
    Detectives (Forensics?)
    Ms F's Class Rocks...(rock stars, music theme...)
    Treasure hunting

    I don't need an F word. In fact, I think I may do one without. Thank you for your ideas!!!!

    Since F is the beginning of your last name, I don't see why you couldn't use F. You could rhyme with your last name instead.

    -Ms. F's Learning Jungle
    -Ms. F's Adventurous Ocean
    -Ms. F's Train Station of Education!:D You can have train tracks all over the room, with stops @ the different Learning Stations or Centers. You and the kids would have a lot of fun with this theme. Ask them for their input.

    There are so many cute things you could do with this theme!!!!!!!!! Wal-Mart has a lot of Luau stuff on sale right now and someone said Dollar Tree did too. Oriental Trading always has great things for a beachy theme.

    Great ideas! I really just wanted to chime in because every time I hear the word theme I get a giggle thinking of Ralphie's teacher in "A Christmas Story": Alright children, we are going to write.....A Theme.
    :D Carry on!

    What about pirates? Using the F, you could say fun, funny, fantastic, friendly....

    I immediately thought "fish" as well. I loved doing a beach theme. Such fun!

    Here's some pics and ideas that I used: MY BEACH THEME

    The cool thing about using FISH is that you could incorporate the "FISH philosophy" in to your classroom.

    Here is a link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/Remarkable-Boost-Morale-Improve-Results/dp/0786866020

    Although it is meant to be kind of a "business philsophy", I have actually visited a school that had its entire expectations based on the ideas in the book.

    Basically there are four rules:
    1. Play
    2. Make Their Day
    3. Be There
    4. Choose Your Attitude
