puzzle bulletin board idea-5th

I got a puzzle border and pieces that will go on a bulletin board with all the kids names inside my room. This is for 5th grade- hopefully not too cheesy but I thought it could say something like "We fit together" or something....does anyone have any other catchy ideas? Also, do you think this is "too young" for 5th?

The boards/posters I am planning for now are a birthday poster, calendar area, student showcase board of work, and I am debating on Star of the week or student of the week. Do any of you work with 5th do student of the week?

I'm moving from 3rd to 5th this year. I did Star of the Week with my 3rd graders. I'm thinking of not having Star with 5th grade. They probably have done it from K-3 grade. Even towards the end of the year my 3rd graders were bored with it.

Sounds good - You could have puzzles for free time/indoor recess. Expand your theme to puzzles/mystery because you have to put clues together - You have to put puzzles together!?
Read a mystery book - Chasing Vermeer
Add a magnifying glass - may be with a trivia/puzzle question of the week!

I meant that I am creating a bulletin board for the beginning of the year to "unite" the students in my room- I don't have the space on my outer door. I wanted to see if anyone had ideas about a catchy phrase that I could use- this won't be up all year but just at the beginning =). Any ideas?

FYI, Oriental Trading has a big, interlocking puzzle set, where each kid could decorate their puzzle piece and they all fit together. I considered doing this for my class before, and using it.

Each piece/part is important in making the ____ grade class complete

I know it's long, but that's what I thought of!

Puzzle Bulletin Board Idea

For my back-to-school bulletin board last year I gave each of my 7th graders a puzzle piece. (The inside rectangle was about 7 x 9 inches) in different colors (I used the neon paper). They drew pictures inside that represented them and printed their name across the puzzle piece in dark marker. We then put the puzzle together and each student described their graphic representations as they stapled the piece into place. (Puzzle pieces could all fit into each other.) It worked really well as was not too 'kiddish" for them.

I use Beth Newinghams Star Student Ideas. She has a letter that goes home to the parents and the star student does something everyday. It is a great idea and my fifth graders loved it an couldn't wait to be the star!!! Also, the puzzle I did it a couple of years ago and my students were really a team that year so because of that I am doing it again this year except I an cutting out a big 5 and giving them a piece of the 5 and decorate it with their name on it or draw something that represents something about them.
