Class Photos or Student Drawings:
Display a Battleship Game or image of it on the door with a dry erase marker to write where you are if you are out of the room. Title it, "Our Coordinates."
Create a board with a Guess Who theme for Mystery Reader.
Use posterboard to create checkers, chess pieces, 3D dice, etc. Hang from the ceiling with fishing line.
Create locker/cubby tags that look like Monopoly Squares and title, "Jane Street, "Liam Avenue, Zoe Place, etc."
This teacher created Trivial Pursuit game pieces as a behavior plan for table points.
Even if you are not doing a Boardgame Theme, Homeworkopoly is a great addition to the classroom. I created a Homeworkopoly Board many moons ago. I thought it came out great at the time, but it didn't even compare to Kristen's AMAZING version of it. And guess what? She oh-so-generously shared the files over on her site. Don't act surprised. I sent you over there a few weeks ago with promises of awesomeness. I don't make these things up. :)
I love the idea of using carpet squares to make a life-size gameboard. I'm picturing it in the meeting area. I also had a vision of covering milkcrates to make dice seats. How cool would those be?
These would be adorable as nametags on desks.
This mom transformed her home into a Candyland Game. You could adapt some of these ideas for the classroom.
This idea would be cute with actual photos of the kids on a red/black checkerboard titled, "Check Us Out."
