My initial idea was to create a food that went with each genre - like Mystery Meatloaf. However, I've got about 12 genres that I need to teach (or are involved in the 40 book challenge) and that might get tricky.
Now I'm wondering if I shouldn't just incorporate the CAFE board (and thereby the food theme) into my focus wall. Maybe generate a food for each section of the focus wall? Here are some ideas I played with in Paint. Can you help? (The pics are as big as I can make them to fit the blog. If you click them, they'll be full size.)

|Shrank Vocab. and added PIE|
|Added meal courses for the "School Name" Cafe|
I'm stopping myself here, even though I've still got ideas like...
- Instead of using words like "pasta" should I get more specific? Perhaps, "Spaghetti Structures" is better?
- Should I not bother? Just keep the plain and simple focus wall?
