    I will begin my first year of teaching in a couple of weeks. The school I will be working at has a schoolwide theme of "Learning Rocks." I plan to decorate my door using record cutouts and a small jukebox cutouts and put the student names on music notes and title the door with "Rock N Roll into the 4th Grade." But I am really concerned about using this theme throughout other areas in my classroom...I'm nervous enough as it is, and now i'm getting bogged down with the theme!! I am open to any and all suggestions!! Please Help!!!

    You don't have to use the same theme throughout your classroom -- use that theme for your door to promote cohesiveness and then do something totally different inside. Each wall or area can be different as well -- they can sort of tie in or not.

    BTW, do kids even know what records and jukeboxes are?

    Learning Rocks


    This is Beth Newingham and she did a rock and roll theme - it just made things cuter. Pick a couple of ideas - you can add on later.

    Our Accelerated Reader theme at my school was "Reading Rocks" last year. I bought old 45's at a thrift store and put each child's name on it with their picture in the middle. I decorated the room with 45's and the sleeves from the 45's (hung them from the ceiling, labeled different areas of the classroom with them). The children loved them... and they did know what they were.... they said their grandparents had them (made me feel old :haha: )
