May Classroom Ideas – Theme Days
I love to use Theme Days during the last week of school! Let’s be real… the last week can be hard. It can be difficult to keep kids motivated and to keep behavior on track. Having a special Theme Day every day gives kids something to look forward to and allows you and the class to make some more special memories together.
Here are some examples of Theme Days:
- Reading Party – Kids get to bring in pillows, blankets, stuffed animals and have a little reading party in the classroom.
- Game Day – Kids can bring in a board or card game from home to play with their classmates.
- Movie Day – Enjoy a fun educational movie (example – Magic School Bus) and some yummy popcorn.
- Sports Day – Throw a mini Olympics for your class to compete in with sports challenges. Could include basketball free throw challenges, races, jump rope contest, and more.
- Show and Tell Day – Students love bringing in items for home to share with the class – this is their chance to do so!
