Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My!

Hey Blogging Buddies! I am totally slacking on the blogging front... I took a vacation to Florida over the Holiday and an just starting to get back in the swing of things! If you read my guest blogger post on Amanda's wall at Teaching Maddeness then you know that I promised you a blog post with BDA strategies as well as the full length document! Its coming I promise! I am not on my home computer, but I will have it for you soon! I hate to say this but I am in a classroom decorating RUT!!! I really love all the colors and polka dots in my room but I have done nothing Wizard of Oz-y yet! I really want to stick with the Oz theme. I am thinking of naming my reading groups Lions, Tigers, and Bears?? What do you think? I am going to decorate my door with a yellow brick road and Dorothy with the title "There's No Place Like Second Grade." But other than that I havent really thought of many other ways to tie in the Oz theme. I've googled and read some ideas but Havent found anything I just love... I am going to do something I saw on Pinterest as a behavior incentive called Build a Rainbow and the students add colors to their rainbow for good behavior... What else have ya got for me bloggers?????


  1. I'll have to think on that. I have some free oz cafe Posters iny TpT store though!

  2. I LOVE the Wizard of Oz theme idea, although I have to be honest that I'm still sort of scared of that movie. It scared me as a kid and I never quite recovered ;0)

  3. For behavior treats, you can make munchkin mix! I saw these little treat bags for sale when I went to see Wicked last week. It is just a bag of little animal crackers and pretzels. Nikki over at melonheadz illustrating also has a sweet little clip art bundle for sale in her Etsy shop. Just a few thoughts. Good luck!
