It is funny...I did an 80's them this year since I was born in 1981...My bulletin board on the outside of the classroom said, "Think Big In The Third Grade". I had pictures of big hair bands all over the board. Then, I let my kids dress up as 80's rockstars for Open House, and we took pictures. PARENTS LOVED IT...Kids love it because much of the style is coming back. My prize box had leg and hand warmers. Oriental Trading has a bunch of 80's things. I made a nuch of posters of 80's things (cartoons like Jem, rockstars, toys, etc). These pictures work as writing prompts for many of the kids. They think I was insane to love some of the things I did.
On my wall with the eseential questions, I have a poster that says, "WHACHU LEARNIN BOUT WILLIS".
I had to show a clip of the show for them to get it.
