I don't do a classroom theme. I am too fickle for that kind of commitment. BUT I do like having a Back to School Week theme.... hence my Superhero Students Packet. Last year I dipped my toe into my theme, but this year I have dived in head first!
Check out my door I completed today!!! I just love it.
I got the idea here! To make the door happen....
1. I covered my door in blue paper and added the border and letters.
2. Next I googled "Kid superhero silhouettes" and THIS is the image I used.
3. I saved the image and inserted it into PowerPoint so that I could make it exactly the size I wanted.
4. I projected the image onto my Smartboard and traced.
***After a few tries I realized that if I just unplugged my board from the wall I could trace on my Smartboard without activating the screen. I am sure most of you would have thought of that, BUT it was a total ah hah moment for me!
Another aspect of the Superhero Back to School theme for me this year is my classroom binder! I know many of you know about binder systems. My students will take the binder back and forth from home every day. I will have five sections: Our Classroom, Spelling, Homework, Math, and Reading. I will get more into the details of the binder in a later post!
I also made these cute little notes to go home with my kids on the first day of school! You can snag it (I made one for Kinder through fifth) and the binder cover in my google docs!
While you are there, you can check out my Back to School Unit!!!
Wish me luck I meet my sweet SUPERHEROES tomorrow!
