How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I just started the 100 day countdown for my classroom (counting down to the movie release.) Today they got to watch the first teaser trailer and we got to color and the kids want to help with it. We decided we would create little tags to put on lunch trays in the cafeteria every week would be our outreach into the school building. We will also base our incentive "Fun Friday" reward time to create something Star Wars. Next week we will make mini trash can R2's. Our school nurse is making each student a beanie with a Star Wars theme (she knits)-I believe she is making me a Princess Leia Beanie tonight. The students will be making Death Star Pinatas. I want to make pool noodle light sabers but I don't think I would be allowed to so instead the kids will dip pretzel sticks into coloring white chocolate. These are just what I have set in motion in the past 24 hours :) I can't wait! They will also do some sort of writing assignment involving dialogue so they can practice using quotations and then they can put on a readers theatre (which we could tape and create one long movie...hmmmm)
