Rules of the Road
You can read about my "Rules of the Road" activity by clicking HERE.
On the first day of school, after we've discussed the four main rules, each student is going to receive a "Driver's License" that will be signed and hung on the board.
This activity idea can be found in my 30-page

  5. Excellent I really like your behavior chart. Where did you get the timeline next to the behavior chart?

    1. So glad you like the Behavior Chart - it has been really effective this year :).

      The timeline is part of our Bible curriculum (I teach at a Christian school). We read about different Christian heroes (from the Bible and beyond) and add them to our timeline.

  6. LOVING this post-- exactly the inspiration I needed for my travel themed classroom next year. I'm stumped on labeling classroom jobs. I'd like them themed as well (Special/Star Student=Pilot, Door Holder=Copilot, Paper Passer-Outer= Flight Attendant, etc.). Did you do any of that by chance?

    1. Hi Tabitha!

      So glad you like the theme - it's been soooo fun having a travel-themed classroom these past three years.

      I love your suggestion of the themed Classroom Jobs - I'll get right on that and send you a copy when I'm done :)

  7. I'm wondering your thoughts on doing a travel theme in a grade 6 math/science classroom? In grade 6 we do air and aerodynamics, space, trees and forests, etc. and so I think this theme could tie in well...I don't want to do something too young for the age group but I am thinking I could make this theme older somehow. What are your thoughts?

  8. Hi Miss Nagy,
    Thanks for stopping by :)
    Yes, I definitely think that this travel/adventure theme would work in your 6th grade classroom! Every year my 5th graders are actively engaged in the theme - especially the boys (who are tired of polka dots and owls). I'm confident that your 6th graders would love it too. Because you teach such applicable concepts, I'm sure you could have a lot of fun implementing your theme into those topics.
    Let me know if you need anything specific that I can create for you :)

  11. You have great ideas! Keep it up! Btw, have you seen the calendars from Calendar Club http://calendars.com.au/all-categories/travel-calendars.html. They have different calendars but the link I supplied are travel-themed calendars. Maybe you can gain more ideas and inspiration from these beautiful calendars. Good luck!

  13. I would love to hear more about your history mystery suitcase! How did you use that?

    1. Hi Bethany!
      Sure thing - the History Mystery suitcase is one of my favorite parts of the classroom! I used it to introduce each new unit/topic in Social Studies. On the day we were to start a new chapter, I would fill the suitcase with items, pictures, etc. that had to do with the topic. I would call students up to pull the items out of the suitcase and as a class we would make predictions about what we were going to be studying. The kiddos loved it!

  14. I bought the package and love it all. Can't wait to use it. Would you make a "how I get home" chart; bus, car, walker etc
