Sometimes I am a little slow on the uptake. I have been soooo excited that there are only 19 students on my class list. (A little nervous too, because the other 3rd only has 18. I would hope that they wouldn't combine, but you never know.) This year I have chosen to do a fairy tale theme in my classroom. In third grade they get to learn about fairy tales and folk tales from around the world. I thought it would be fun to hook a theme to that.
All summer long I have been searching for fairy tale things to decorate my room with and to use to enhance my theme. It all seemed very girly. This made me a little apprehensive how well I could make it work, but my friend assured me that it was a great theme. I get my class list on Wednesday right before my open house I put up my bulletin board with all of the students' names on crowns. It looks great.
This morning I am reading another blog and she is talking about how many boys she has on her list. I am thinking I have 12 boys on my list too; 12 boys and 7 girls. Bam! It hits me 12 boys and 7 girls. Fairy tale theme only 7 girls. Wow I think I really chose the wrong theme. I am in desperate need of a way to "dude up" fairy tale land.
