I decorated my last year's classroom in a Monkey Theme. Here is a picture of one of the bulletin boards. The "Wild Words" consisted of our character words or new vocabulary words throughout the year. This bulletin board also had our Word Hunt poem to emphasize high frequency words we were currently working on. The second bulletin board was our Welcome board that we displayed in the hall at the beginning of the year. I will continue to post some pictures of our MONKEY Binders (My Own Notebook Keeps Everything Yearlong) and some other classroom resources as the summer passes. I am currently trying to decide which theme I want to have this coming school year. It would be so easy to just stick with the Monkey theme but after having the theme for a year...one starts to go BANANAS!
