The race car theme was one of my favorite themes. Here is a throw back post:
Some of my jobs were: Spotters(monitors), Pit Crew(Clean-up), Pace Car(line-leader), Tailgate (end of the line), and other jobs that I can't remember right now. Everybody had a job. One year my "Garage" was where students would go to "repair" their behavior. Other years it was a Pit Stop to tune up their behavior. Students carried their CAR (Communication And Responsibility) notebooks home each day. It contained homework, calendar, lunch menu, a zippered bag for money, and an agenda. You can Google Frog or Bear Notebook to get other ideas for the notebook. My AR board was a race track. Beth Newingham gave me some great ideas. http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bne...acingtheme.htm. I ordered a race driver cut-out from Oriental Trading to take of the students, for the job board and Driver of the Week Board.

Like you, I did not want Cars -the movie theme. Those were the good ol' days. It was easier for me to make so many connections with our curriculum when I had a race car theme. I've had a Hollywood theme for the past 2 years, with the hopes of using my flip to make movies, but it never happened. I might go back to my race car theme.

I hope this is helpful. Have fun!
