I am all set and ready to welcome my parliament (a group of owls) to my classroom! I have never done a theme in my room before and I don't think I went too 'Owl Crazy'... although, my first day of school outfit is a dress with owls on it and owl earrings. So here is a glimpse at my home away from home...
Can you spot the owl stuffed animals in these pictures? They were an amazing suprise from my boyfriend. He has named them Hooty, The Duke, and Francisco. He has the imigination of a 2nd grader. My students will love our new mascots!
The banner above my board even has little owls on it. I made it with some left over fabric, rope, and a hot glue gun! Super easy!
The filing cabinent is topped with Hooty and some of my craft projects I made from Pinterest.
I made the frame the 'Keep Calm and Teach On' print is in out of an old frame and scrapbook paper.
Whoo Is Doing What?
Check out my classroom job board. I bought this bulletin board set from Schoolbox. The trees are supposed to fold up to make pockets, but in my room each kid gets a job so I needed to display more than one students' name for most jobs. Students get to pick from:
Line Leader, Door Holders, Lunch Accountants, Light Savers, Paper Patrol, Librarians, Classroom Cleaners, Caboose, Chair Stackers, and Pencil Sharpeners.
Word Walls and Materials
My little hanging garden and 'Our Behavior'
I am anxious, excited, and a tad bit nervous for my students to walk through that door tomorrow. I know everything will come back naturally to me once the bell rings.
