Next week my grade level is meeting to revamp our theme days and units. I hoped to hear from many of you about theme days in your classroom. Last year we did Polar Express Day. I think we are getting a little tired of doing the same thing every year, not to mention that so many other grade levels do something similar. We wanted to keep a themed day for the week before Christmas break, but we want something new. I thought maybe just a winter theme or snow theme of some sort would be cute. When I say themed day I mean the whole day revolves around this idea. We incorporate our math, science and reading around this theme.
We already have a great theme day for Halloween and Spring, but we need to seriously revamp our winter theme. Are there any special things you do in your class other than just a party. Are there books centered around this theme, are their centers, crafts, poetry, writing or any other subject?
