Racing Themed Classrooms

My racing themed classroom kit is now available. It features Thistlegirl clipart and includes: planning sheets, plan book pages, deskplates, bookmarks, bathroom passes, communication covers and pages, reading logs and more. Click here to download it.

Throughout the month of June, I am going to run a Classroom Theme Series and feature a different popular classroom theme each day. Themes are a great way to tie everything in your classroom just have to be careful not to let them clutter your classroom :) Today we are going rev our engines with a racing theme...on your mark...get set...GO!

How much fun would this be as part of a classroom library?

The awesomeness below is from the theme queen, Beth Newingham:

Revvin' Up for Success!
Start Your Engines for Learning!
Racing to Learn!
Driven to Succeed
Mr./Mrs. ____________ Pit Crew
We "Brake" for Birthdays
-use go, yield, and stop as behavior levels
Our Behavior is On Track
Behavior Board
Rev Up Your Writing
On the 'Write' Track"

Racing into a New Year
Racing into _____ Grade!
On your Mark, Get Set, GO!!!
Welcome to Mr./Mrs. ____________'s Motor Speedway
Full Speed Ahead for a Year of Learning Fun
The Winner’s Circle
-checkered flags
-buy black border and use a white out pen to turn it into a road

R-Respect~ yourself and other’s
A-Attitude~ Always have a positive one.
C-Cooperate~ and always do your best
E-Excellence~ it’s the key to success!
You could also refer to your rules as “speed limits”
-student of the week could be “Driver of the Week”
-create an area for students to turn in their work called, “The Finish Line.”
-call your meeting area “The Pit”
-bathroom passes or sign out area can be titled, “Pit Stop”

These ideas are from a hotwheels birthday party, but could be used in a classroom.

If you go to this site you can make a license plate with each child's name as a locker or cubby tag or to display with a picture or work. You can even pick your own state.

The following thirteen images are from Mrs. Robertson's classroom. I also featured her wild west theme on my cowboy page. I think she did an amazing job of going all out with a theme, but keeping the room organized and neat looking.
