Polka Dot Themers: I put it together
Old 06-17-2008, 06:56 AM

Hey girlies,

I am trying to do the Polka Dot theme. I am including Ladybugs with it, so that I have a little more room to go with it. I compiled a list of most of what I could find on here and some of my own ideas. Please add ideas!! Hopefully this will get our creative juices flowing...

ps. Sorry it is long, but I am too new to put it as an attachment...

Moose Notebook
My D.O.T. Book (Daily Organizational Tools)

Find Your Spot in Mrs. –‘s Class
Find Your Spot in Second Grade
Second Grade is the Spot for a Great Year
Second Grade Hits the Spot

Get Spotted Being Good
Get Spotted Doing the Right Thing
Look Who’s Been Spotted...
Be “Spot On” in Second Grade
Which Dot Are YOU on? - Typical Color Change System
Time out - Stop Spot or Hot Spot

Student Work/Student of the Week
Spotlight on Student Work
Student Spotlight

Math is Cool and “Dots” the Truth
On-the-Spot Learning
The Spelling Spot
The Reading Spot
A Good Book Hits the Spot

Check Out this Dot... It will Tell You A LOT!
Dot Spot
The Spotlight


Cover door with black material or paper and put big red dots. Put students names on DJ Inkers ladybugs and use the saying: “Look Who’s Been “Spotted in Mrs. -‘s Class”.

Name Plates: Buy dotted scrapbook paper and glue a sentence strip to it. Cut out and the paper will be the border. Laminate.

Back to School bags - Buy solid color bags and put dots on. Include Dot Candy in the bag. (Dotted Pencils, erasers, etc.)

Curtains - Buy Polka Dot Material or Curtains

Use Dot Letters for sayings from School Supply Store

Polka Dot material for BB backgrounds

Use Polka Dot ribbon to decorate: Handles, File Cabinets, Edging on
baskets or pencil cup holders, computers etc.

Use Dots with student names on them for grouping, calling on students

Thats all for now, I am going to try to work on my room Friday, so I will try to post some pictures soon. Please do the same.
