Whooo's Looking for an Organized Owl-Themed Classroom?

I know I talked to y'all about Big Lots last week, but after hitting the 20% off she-bang, I am super excited about getting my classroom ready, and I'm sure you're at least beginning to think along those same lines.  I found kid-sized saucer chairs, chevron striped rugs, hot pink, lime, and turquoise crates (which I think I'll make into the storage bench here on Second Grade Happenings).

Any-hooo, I was inspired to make a few owl-themed classroom decorations, including a birthday set, A/R tracking set, classroom helpers board, and I'm working on more.  As I posted them on TPT, I noticed just how many owl-themed things are already there, so if you're looking for mine (the cutest hoots out there), go directly to my shop.  I included a freebie for you, too!

With my Dollar Tree locker bins, owl-personalized magazine files, and my leveled library tags, I think I have my classroom library vision, with the cute chevron rugs and saucer chairs for a comfortable spot to read.  I think I'll use the crate storage bench near my learning games station, but might use it for computer seating instead.  I'm such a computer geek, I have my classroom PDF downloaded from my district website, have it in an excel spreadsheet, "under" cells arranged to represent my floor tiles, with all my virtual furniture virtually placed in the room.  Take a looksey:

So, yeah, I have been on an organizing binge lately.  You should see my girls' rooms, their playroom, and even my bathroom drawers, closets, and cabinets!  Do you think it's the Adderall???

By the way, if you didn't get the invite, check out Second Grade Shenanigans for the Carolina Blogger Meet-Up in Cola-town (Columbia, for those of you not from South Cackalacky!).  Join us for a girls' nite out full of "teacher talk" without the hubbies politely saying yelling, "stop talking about school!"
Hope to see you there!
