What grade do you teach? I'm planning on doing something similar (4th grade).
I am going to implement "tribes" next year (Tribes: A New Way of Learning and Being Together, by Jeanne Gibbs) so am planning a tribal/jungle/Survivor-like theme. I've got some tropical/jungle looking fake plants that will be in the room, a bamboo ladder that I plan to use for something (read a certain number of books and add your name to a rung on the ladder...reach the top and get ____), and I've got a thatch umbrella (on sale at Big Lots) that I will put in the Reading corner, etc. I'm changing the cushions on my wicker loveseat (also in the Reading corner) to look more jungle-like We can't hang things from the ceiling in our rooms, so most of mine will be on walls & floors. When my students get divided into Tribes, then their tribal flags or crests will add to the decor. I'll have jungle or tropical music playing on Orientation night as students come in...maybe steel drum music or some sort of drums/jungle music. I don't know...I'm not all there with it yet. :-)
