I like your idea about "warming up to a good book." I was going to do a similar thing in my room. How about having students put books they like on stars for the sky above the campfire. You could use snowflakes in winter and bugs in the spring. I like the idea of fireflies, too!


For math I thought I would put an eagle flying above all my math vocabulary posters, and put "A Bird's Eye View of Math."

I also thought I would have a Word Woods. On each of my windows I would put a tree trunk, and then have the students add leaves that fit the prefix or suffix we are studying- example words that use pre- . This would be part of my word study literacy station. I would use green leaves in August and September, switch to orange and brown for Oct. to Nov. Use snowflakes for winter, buds for spring. I could change the titles to things like- finding synonyms and antonyms, etc..
