I know it's an uncommon classroom theme, but shoes is my theme this year. It ties in with my last name Has anyone done this theme before? I've done a few things but am looking for some more inspiration.
walk in my shoes.... there are several shoe books on character education. Can't remember them...it was a long while ago. Even though I teach 4th grade, I taught the kids how to tie their shoes. You would be surprised how many didn't know how. We made it into a write the directions (in sequence) to tie a pair of shoes. Our animal shelter had a give a pair of shoes fundraiser at the time. Can't think of anything else right now.
You could do:
-rhyming with the word shoe (maybe as sight words)
"stepping into my shoes"
-"take a walk in my shoes"
-"taking a step toward success"
-"leaping into learning"
"walking toward success"
any cute puns like that!
