I've been looking through all the great posts on Camping theme, but nothing has caught my eye for the hallway and door. I would like something very inviting, but not too hard to do (moving schools, I won't have a lot of time for decorating). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I am planning a camping theme and outside my room I plan to have; "Look who's camping out in first grade!" I thought I would take a picture of my new students sitting in my tent. I would then place the pictures around the words.
I am also doing my room with a camping theme. Your daughter's pics of her door are too cute. Do you have pics of how she decorated her room and bulletin boards? I would love see them. Thanks for sharing.
I'm pretty sure you have to be a junior member to post a picuture (I think somewhere around 40 posts). If you have a website you should be able to link to your site with pictures, if not - keep posting! The BusyBoard and Teachers Lounge always have lots going on that you could respond to. By the way welcome - there's a ton of great info on this site!
She did her job board using cut outs of jars and used little bugs on them. The cutouts were from a notepad of paper that looked like jars. I don't remember all of her jobs,but I do remember this one!
Conservation Officer- take care of pet turtles
She also found passes to the restroom with outhouses on them!!! TOO CUTE! She had a camper of the week board. I don't have any pics of this or the job jars. OOPS! If you look at the reading area pic...the bulletin board to the right is the job jars board.
She had a little stuffed skunk that was placed on someone's desk as a warning.....for being a little stinker! They knew they were about to get in trouble if the skunk was on their desk.
Thank you so much for the wonderful compliments!!!! I have yet another daughter that teaches kindergarten and her room is adorable! It was done in the farm and has a huge barn in it!!!! Idon'tthinkI have pics of it...but I'll browse and see!
I'll keep posting so I can get to attach pictures. I LOVED the bamboo hut that you posted. I had a small child tent in my room. (second grade) But this year I'm doing a jungle theme. I would love how she made that! Too cute!
Actually I made the hut a few years ago and I purchased a new one for my room. She inherited the old one. Very easy to make....4 PVC pipes for legs and using PVC elbows and T-joints I atttached three pipes going across the top to form the roof. I use a grass table skirt to and attached it to the top using double sticky tape. At the end of the year, the legs are pulled off and they just pop back in. Go to a lumber yard like HomeDepot or Lowes and they can help you. Very inexpensive to make. I spray painted the pipe brown.
There's nothing I like more than to see other teacher's classrooms and creativity! Thanks for posting such great pictures! I love the camping themed room - so creative! And I would love to see more of the classroom behind that cute hallway display! Please keep posting! Now....is there anyone out there with photos of a travel/road trip theme??? I'd love to see that .... or a cooking theme! Thanks!
She listed her rules on the poster in the corner. They were the typical respect/responsibility type things.
Then she listed each child's name and placed a large tack by their name. If they broke the camp rules they had to move their tack. the first move was a warning and each additional move had a consequence; lost moose money ( she did a classroom econonmy); lost recess;note home; visit principal. Her students were allowed to shop on Mondays with their moose money.
We have strict rules about the types of furniture we're allowed to have. The fire marshall seems to ban everything! How does your school deal with this? I love the reading hut but I can't see our fire marshall permitting it.
I am also doing a camping theme this year...thanks for all the inspiration...and somewhere I seen a door that was decorated using tp rolls painted brown to make a cabin affect. Does anyone know where I can find that pict. again?
I am planning on using a tent this year for my fourth grade class. I was a little worried about 4th graders being in the tent as well. I decided since the tent is really a "one-man" tent, I am only allowing the helper for that day to read in the tent. We will see how it goes!
