Definitely a Hoot!

Well I have finished my first year as a 3rd grade teacher and it was definitely a HOOT.  3rd grade is nothing short of a marvelous challenge. I have not had a chance to even breathe let alone blog since January.  We managed to have a fabulously adventurous year jam packed with learning together as we prepared for the mysterious new STAAR test.   I am thrilled to pieces to be past that hurdle and am so ready for a relaxing summer of blogging, creating, and sharing. 

Every May it hits me!  I become obsessed with redoing my classroom.  This year was no exception.  Since my blog is owl themed it seems only fitting that my classroom follows suit.  So... I have been feverishly working on this Owl Classroom Decor pack.  I included an adorable welcome banner (just add ribbon), table numbers, locker tags (or desk plates), subject headers, calendar numbers and months. 





I got some  bright tissue paper poms from Party City and attached the table numbers to them with fancy ribbon.  Hung them from the ceiling and voila! Not a new concept but I love it!



I revamped my Word Wall and Owl Daily 5 signs as well.   I can't wait to put it all together!    Of course I had to create a freebie print for y'all.  In keeping with my mantra from last year I had to do another Keep Calm for you to frame!

I also have some name tags for you HERE.

LOVE it! Super Duper Cute! How do y'all get away with hangin' things from the ceiling? Our Fire Marshals are super strict.

I had cute Christmas lights with robins on my wall & was asked to take them down...I never had them on all day only when we worked with the lights off. I see lots of super cute decor ....I was just wondering.

Can you type on the name plates? Also, do you print your owl stuff on regular paper or card stock?

I bought it and loved it...I should have bought your word wall pack too but I bought someone else's...not as cute. I came across it on TPT and it went perfect with what I wanted this year. I wanted to do blue and green polka dot with an occasional owl and a splash of pink. I will post picks when I get it all set up in my room.

I was just wondering how you made you own theme? It's adorable! I Bought one elsewhere a few days ago and do not like it as much. I would like to change my theme every few years but that can get expensive. How did you do it? Was it a template? Or Is there a program you use? BTW I Love your blog!

I would really like to print the Keep Calm and Love Owls poster, but it says it is a Bad Request and won't load it. Could you fix it? Thanks!

I just decided on Owls as my theme and I'm so happy that I came across this!!! Thanks so much. I changed schools this year and my room is a mess, so I really need the Keep Calm sign... I might need to print the eat cupcakes one too!!!

Rebecca Hester said...

Your owl theme is so great! I have a teacher friend who has an owl theme in her classroom and I am going to send her to your blog! I know she will be thrilled to see all of your great resources!
