I am doing a western theme this year. My bulletin board will say: "Wanted, A Great Group of Kids" Reward, A Year of Learning and Fun." I have wanted posters that I will put their picture on. I'm using bandana fabric I bought at Wal-Mart as the background and using rope as the border. Good luck with your theme. This is a fun theme to work with.

http://www.teacherweb.com/mi/central.../mrsbainbridge is my site if you want to see some things I do.

I took my photos of my room down because we're doing construction in the building right now, so my room will be re-decorated in the fall, but you'll get the idea!

The dollar spot had some really cute rugs - boot and hat shaped, denim lined baskets and tin hanging. You could use some of these to cheaply decorate the bulletin board. HTH

I did a wild west theme one year and just used some "western words" to make catchy headings:
My helper chart say "Howdy Helpers." maybe you can use that as an introduction to meet you - Howdy ____ graders...
Reading Roundup could be a title above your map board or something similar. (Reading Roundup around the world, Where did you Lasso a good book?, ...)

I also used bandana print to make cut-out letters as a PP said. It looked great.

I did a western theme one year. My birthday board said: "Rootin' Tootin' Birthdays". I found a cowboy and a cowgirl (Carson Delosa) and I used die cut stars for the student's names. I used an overhead proj. to trace the cowboy & cowgirl. They turned out really cute.

Have you seen this?

Go to realclassroom.com and check out classroom themes along the left side. Click on western theme.

How about using alliteration and doing something simple like

WELCOME to the WILD WEST
Your wagon train adventure starts today.
HEAD'EM UP and MOVE'EM OUT
or
WESTWARD HO


Your letters could be cut from bandana fabric. Then you could have some kind of border that was fringed like you see on the frontiersmen's clothing. Add some pictures of wagons, horses and pioneers and you're set.

Hello! I am switching to a wild west theme for this school year. I am excited but challenged! I need two ideas for beginning of year. First, we have to have a welcome bulletin board for meet the teacher, and I don't have any theme related ideas! Also, I have a bulletin board with world and U.S. maps where students put stickers to demonstrate places they have visited in books. Any thoughts about a title for that? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
