This one may be farfetched, but www.reallygoodstuff.com has "Gearing Up For a Really Good Year!" There is a banner (153572TJ), nameplates (153730TJ), postcards (153763TJ), letterhead (153774TJ), photo holders (153785TJ), pencils holders (153752TJ), and pencils (153808TJ).
Ok--I've officially changed back to construction. My discipline plan is the old standby of pulling slips so. . . I made a small stop light for each kid. They have red, yellow, & green circles on them and I will remove for each infraction.
Another way to do this is to make one big stoplight and move clothespins or magnets for each child.
Good Luck--send me pics when you get your room done and I'll do the same.
Thanks--my school is now the official FEMA/SRS headquarters in Coffeyville, KS so I don't know when I'm going to be able to finally get in my room to set up. I spent another $100 today on deco so I can't wait.
I'm also doing a construction theme this year and I'm thinking of calling my b-day area "Have a Dynamite Birthday" I used a rectangular planter last year and called it "Birthday Blooms". Each student birthday was on a cutout flower which I put a birthday pencil though and then I stuck it in to the green plant foam. I thought of making that planter box into a dynamite ignition box? and attaching a stick of dynamite cut out on their b-day pencil with the saying "Have a Blast on your Birthday!"
