Ok, so I had full intentions on making this blog post full of owl puns, you know like, "WHOO loves owls, or OWL tell you all about it," but after Mark and I threw around several bad owl puns/jokes, I just couldn't bring myself to it. So yay! You're saved from some seriously corny owl puns!
But in all seriousness owls are everywhere right now; children's clothing, party supplies, crafts, and even the classroom!
Want to add the owl theme to your classroom but not sure where to start? An owl bulletin board is a great place to get your owl theme started.
If you want to make a noticeable theme in your classroom but don't have a ton of items that fit into a particular theme, starting with a bulletin board is a good place because of its large size. A bulletin board demands attention and can help set the tone (theme) of your classroom.
With a little bit of creativity and effort, you can make your classroom fit your theme without spending tons of money.
Bulletin Board Breakdown
-I used a mirror to trace a circle onto poster board and then cut the circle out.
-The moon is made from ripped out book pages that I glued to the poster board.
-The tree limbs are made from Dollar Tree contact paper.
free here (along with some other owl freebies).
-I added stars around the moon- you could write your students' names on the stars.
- I placed pre-cut letters over the moon spelling "welcome".
So if you're thinking about adding an owl theme, or any other theme to your classroom and don't want to spend a ton of cash... just get creative! And then take a picture and send it to me! ;)
So WHO else is planning on an owl theme for their classroom this year? Sorry, I had to throw in at least one owl pun! ;)
On to the next one...
