My classroom theme is Crayons. We will be known as the colorful crayons.

My writing wall is called Creative Creations. My word wall is called Colorful Words.

Now as far as sports, I was wondering that you can decorate your classroom as a football field and your class and vote on a name?

I actually completely dislike football--but I have MANY family members that LOVE it! I thought it would be a fun challenge for me! Ha!

Here are some ideas that may work for you.

Teacher--Coach
Word Wall--Words to Tackle
Class Meetings--The Huddle Up
Plan Book--Play Book
Job Chart-- Team Positions (line leader, door holder, messengers and so on)
Class Name-- Moore's Marvelous Team
Instead of "class"--Team
Instead of morning songs--Team Building
Instead of "peers"--call them teammates
Student of the Week--Quarterback (and then can get inducted into the Student of the Week "Hall of Fame")
If your school does "compliments" (like your class is walking so nice in line) and so on, you can have "field goals" and have a fake football chart and they reach 10 Yards and a touchdown--for a party or reward.
A "Great Work" bulletin board--Scoreboard Superstars
Welcome bulletin board--This is a great team! (and kids names on footballs)
Class could be the "Stadium"
A Name for the Class library--this is one I had trouble with--perhaps a "Team References"?

Hope this has helped you at least a little!!

Wow!! For not liking football, you did an awesome job!! Could you help me with my theme? Our school is doing 'Wild Kingdom" with each grade level being an animal. Our Kindergarten grade level will be the Zebras!! Any help would be appreciative.

Okay, Let's see a Zebra Theme (This one is hard).....Here are my thoughts....
I had to look up some info on Zebras and this helped me.

Zebra Facts:
1. Zebras belong to the genus Equus:The genus Equus includes zebras, donkeys and horses.
2. The stripe pattern on every zebra is unique.
This unique stripe pattern provides researchers with an easy method for identifying the individuals they study.
3. Mountain zebras are skilled climbers.
4. Adult male zebras are quick to defend their families by kicking or biting.
5. Their eyes are located on the side of their head, and they have excellent eyesight.
6. Zebras live in social groups. The leader of the group is the stallion.
7. Zebras are Herbivores, which means they eat plants, grasses and roots. This makes them a very successful member of the grassland community.

Ideas:
Word Wall--Super Striped Sight Words
Class Meetings--The Herd Huddle
Job Chart-- Helping the Herd (line leader, door holder, messengers and so on)
Classroom could be called the "Grassland" where zebras live
Instead of "class"--Herd
Student of the Week--Super Stallion
If your school does "compliments" (like your class is walking so nice in line) and so on, you can have a poster of a mountain and a zebra --(since zebras can climb well)----and then you can move your zebra up the mountain and when they reach the top they get a reward.
For behavior your kids could each have a paper zebra somewhere and they can "earn their stripes" for their zebra (and when the fill their zebra they can go to a treasure box or something)---the concept is so cute in my brain!
A "Great Work" bulletin board--Top Stripe Students
Welcome bulletin board--"Herding" in the best for our group(and kids names on Zebras)
A Name for the Class library--Zebras in the Reading Zone
If you have tables you could name them the: Zealous Zebras, Zany Zebras, Zig Zag Zebras, or Zappin' Zebras

That's all I have for now. I hope that has helped some! It was fun and I learned about zebras too! --Amy
