    I need nature themed titles to go around the following areas in my room:

    Reminder Board
    Objectives Area (Where I am required to post the standards?)
    Student Work Area
    Writing Wall (writing related posters)
    Word Wall/Vocabulary Area
    Science Wall
    History timeline

    I know there are some creative people out there and all I have come up with so far is __________ rocks!

    Maybe "Don't Leaf this out" for the Reminder board?

    On the write path for your writing wall
    On the Right Path(for your Objectives) or
    Destination: objective statement
    Travel Log/Journal for History Timeline

    These are just off the cuff...I'll keep thinking.

    I found a lightning border and I thought I could use the title "electrifying work" for student work.

    A Garden of ___ (Good Ideas....)
    Naturally Great Work

    Let your number line be a vine. If you have a Dollar Tree store nearby, look for the cutout wallies (shaped stick-on pieces). They have some really nice leaves, ivy, vines.

    You could draw something large to represent mother nature.

    Glad you like it.

    Do you use writer's workshop? The ideas for new writing are referred to as 'seed ideas'.

    Sowing Seeds of ________
    Branching Out

    It almost seems as though you might want to narrow down from nature - after all, you could consider weather, solar system, water cycle, geology, organisms, animals, and on and on.....

    I have a camping theme and I have a Beehive Helpers board with bees, a Beary Good Choices board with bears and I have a Reading Campout Corner but I may rename that one this year. My B. Board for the beginning of the year is "We Are Ready to Learn S'More!" with bears roasting s'mores. I also have a Leap into Learning board with frogs.

    I understand where you are coming from, but my Science curriculum actually covers all those things you mentioned. I'll be rotating it out.

    Do you teach religion? There are some cool borders out there by Trend (I think) that are photo/nature designs. One of them is pebbles on a beach or something. - HE is my rock!

    DJ Inkers has a wood theme set of bulletin board stuff and some good clip art that would go well with this theme.

    I'm not sure...It just sounded catchy for your theme.;)
    What about an interactive BB with true and false facts about weather? or some thing about hypothesis and sci. process?

    Peppermint is easy to grow and the kids love having it around. It smells amazing! There is also chocolate mint-makes me hungry ;)

    Philodendron grows very easy, also.

    Bright Ideas
    News Flash!


    Now, on the nature theme, one thing I saw last year that worked so well -- was a bulletin board with natural color burlap (the fine kind) as the backdrop, with a leaves and vine border. The burlap doesn't show staple or pushpin holes, so you can change the display all the time, and it always looked so fresh and new! I really was quite sold on the way it looked -- so natural and clean.
