Teaching is so much fun, even more so when you have a classroom theme!
And I don’t just mean your entire class theme is nautical or Dr. Seuss or rainbow, I mean each day of the week has a theme.
YES! If this idea is new to you, I definitely recommend trying it out. Start with just one day of the week, I think Friday is the best because… well it’s Friday and works as a HUGE motivator for students!
Your whole entire day does not need to be themed, just a part of your schedule. For example, when we do Fun Food Friday – we cook only in the morning before specials.
Here are a few ideas of themes you could use for each day of the week:
Motivating Monday / Monday Motivation
Make it Monday
Technology / Techie Tuesday
Task Box Tuesday
Know-How Tuesday (example: life skills tasks)
Talented Tuesday (example: show and tell)
Work Task/Box/Bin Wednesday (read blog posts here)
Why? Wednesday (example: science experiments – “why does __ happen?”)
Read it Wednesday
Wacky Wednesday (example: silly sock day, ready a silly book, learn new words)
Thoughtful Thursday (example: brain teasers or puzzles)
Thankful Thursday (example: write thank you letters)
Thrifty Thursday (example: money)
Think About It Thursday (example: brain teasers puzzles)
Social Story Thursday
Treat Truck/Tray Thursday (example: student run treat cart for teachers)
