    Hello. I am a first year second grade teacher. I am actually looping my first graders from last year to second grade. I am very excited. However, last year my theme was stars. I don't want to do the same exact thing because I don't want to bore my students. But, I can't afford to buy all new things. So, I was thinking I could incorporate more of an outerspace theme, including astronauts, planets, moon, etc...

    However, my brain is fried and I'm having a difficult time coming up with cute phrases for certain areas in my room. Such as:

    Math Area
    Word Wall
    Writing Corner
    Job Chart
    etc...

    I would appreciate any help you may have!! Thank You!!

    Do you have a cute idea for the welcome board? :) I have these cute rockets I wanted to put up with their names on them, but I was a cute saying welcoming them to second grade. If you can think of anything I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    I'm using space for 3rd grade. My welcome BB outside the room says Third Grade is Out of this World.

    Dollar Tree has some REALLY cute die cuts that are a pack of 10 for $1, and one of them is space themed. I think there's a rocket, an astronaut, a planet, a star, and a sun... 2 of each. They're pretty flimsy but laminate pretty well. I got a set for my math board that I'm calling "Math Blastoff" :)

    In response to the cutouts from dollar tree- they do laminate reall well and iwth a little time and effort can be made into awesome stencils! I laminate them ten cut them out and use an exacto knife to cut out the smaller areas. I have over $100 worth of stnecils that i have made-- not all from the dollar store cut outs, but quite a few of them are that and they are always getting different ones so I check everytime I go there to se if they have anything new.
