and this one is a challenge ( Amusement Park) has kind of changed to Carnival/ Amusement Park theme only because of lack of stuff out there.

see pictures of my work so far. I'm still brainstorming great titles! Any help would be appreciated.

I found some great stuff and I love searching all summer for new ideas. I'm so excited each year to see my ideas come together and the kids LOVE it!

Very cute! Check Oriental Trading Company also. They have a ton of items you can use.


http://www.orientaltrading.com/big-t...ltr?Ntt=circus Table Tent....I really like this! Use for a listening center area or something. You might be able to make this out of PVC pipe and use fabric stripes or butcher paper.

http://www.orientaltrading.com/big-t...ltr?Ntt=circus Super cute reading corner tent! Kind of pricey though.

http://www.orientaltrading.com/big-t...ltr?Ntt=circus Door Banner - funny! Put your face on it!

http://www.orientaltrading.com/big-t...ltr?Ntt=circus Directions signs....Office, Teacher's Ticket Booth (your desk), Reading, Math, etc. Get creative!

http://www.orientaltrading.com/jumbo...ltr?Ntt=circus Shoes for the 1st day.

What a fun theme!

I am doing a circus theme and these are some things that I have begun working on: newsletter, homework planner, and reading banner. Maybe they can be useful for you.

amusement Park

Clip to ScrapBook #10

I did an amusement park theme and it was very difficult to come up with ideas.

I made a BIG SLIDE and used it as my behavior chart. It said "SLIDE INTO GOOD BEHAVIOR"

Ferris Wheel was my job chart....the "Job Wheel"
Roller Coaster....I made a roller coaster and put all the kids names on the cars.....They brought in a picture of themselves and I put them in each car so it looked like they were on the roller coaster....it said:
"Learning is a thrill in Mrs.____ Room....Come Join the Ride"

Just some ideas.

I also took pictures at different amusement parks and blew them up to poster size and put them in the room with little saying to go with them.

good luck...looks great so far!

I would love to see your roller coaster with kids pics. Sounds so cute. I did purchase a ferris wheel from northstar teachers resources and plan to use for a job board. I like that title JOB WHEEL

THANKS

I do not have a picture of the roller coaster. It was really fun to do though and kids loved it. Some where upside down and they thought that was cool.
Can not wait to see your finished product!

Our school is like 2 minutes from Six Flags and I want to incorporate that a little. Maybe I'll drive by and ask for some left over free decor.

mrsjames2nd- I blew the pictures up at staples. I would think you can go to CVS or anywhere that developes film and have a poster made.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you I was not on!

You are on top of things. I am just barely getting started on planning for next year. I really like the stripes all around. They are easy to find, and really tie the carnival theme all together.
