Last week, my poor computer kicked the bucket. Yep, dead as a door nail. Sot I can still get online and check out all your cool blog posts, but I can't save or print anything. This is KILLING me! I usually spend most of my summer printing things and getting ready for the new school year. Now, we only have black and white printers at school, so I can't print anything in color. GRRRRR!
On another note, I wanted to share an idea I had while I was sitting in some
So this year, we have both a new principal and a new AP. Our theme for this year is "Wild About Reading!". To tie in with this theme, I came up with some animal ideas for the word wall. I thought I would share them with you in case you needed some ideas. Most of these are jungle animals, but I've added a few others I've thought of. Here goes:
Alligator/Crocodile: "Snapping Up Great Words" - add the words on the teeth
Lion/Tiger/Jaguar etc: "Words to Roar About" - add the words to the mane of the
lion, the stripes of the tiger, or the spots on the jaguar
Parrot/Macaw: "Colorful Words" - add the words on feathers
Monkey: "Monkey-ing Around With Words" - add words to bananas on trees
Birds: "Words To Tweet About" - add words to the leaves on trees
Owls: "Owl-standing Words" - add words to the leaves on the trees
Giraffe: "Spotting Great Words" - add words to the spots
Cats: "Purrrr-fectly Wonderful Words" - add words to balls of yarn
I hope you can use some of these ideas!
