OwLs! Shopping Linky! Guest Blogginess!

Check out all this Owl stuff on my Teacher's Notebook store!!

I don't usually go with a classroom theme, only because I like waayyyyy too many things to focus on one. This year, however, I am doing.... 

There is just something about the little guys that I can't resist this year. Now if I could just incorporate mushrooms and garden gnomes I'd be set!

Fun Freebies!!

You can get the CAFE posters and Skills Cards that go along with this cutie classroom set here for FREE (Thank you Joan and Gail for your never-ending inspiration and ideas!)...

The skill cards are blank so you can either write out or print your own skills on them. I like the flexibility myself, and plan to use wet-erase markers on them. 

And here are the matching D5 cards as well....

Now for the Big Kahuna....

Check out what this monster kit includes:

Month cards (12) 4 x 10.5 in.
number cards (4 sets of 31, plus blanks) 2 x 2 in.

Desk Plates:
4 sets, 3.5 X 10.5 IN.

Letter bubbles:
26 letters, uppercase, 5.5 x 5.5 in

Exit Slip Poster:

Yes and No stick toppers:

Birthday Pencil Toppers:

I can't wait to print and lam it all and get it set up!

So what else is happening? 
Tomorrow, TOMORROW I get to be the guest blogger for Chrissy at
Could I be more excited? I think NOT. Come and check it out, and stay for the other guest bloggers this coming week while Chrissy sails away on a floating vacation! 

Also, in linking up with Kristen at LadyBug's Teaching Files....

I have made only ONE purchase for my classroom so far. It makes me infinitely happy when I look at it, though! (In case you didn't know, I l-u-r-r-r-r-r-v-e this man, in his imperfectness, humility and willingness to make mistakes).

Because, really, if you have curiosity then you have it made in the shade. Seriously. Fo' Realz. If I can give that message to my Fab 4ths then I have done my job. 


  1. I love love love that exit poster idea! Too bad I'm doing an owl theme.

  2. I love what you did with the owls for the exit poster. Super cute! Like you, I haven't done a theme in the past, but those owls are awfully convincing. :)
