3rd Grade Owl Welcome Sign


It's back to school for me today!  I'll be welcoming a new crop of third graders this morning, and I thought I'd share the welcome poster that's hanging in the window of my classroom.  A few weeks ago I opened up Cricut Design Space and searched for the owl images that I own.  I was surprised to see that there were more than 20 of them!  I went ahead and cut them then, using some pretty shades of Papertrey Ink cardstock.  I cut 20, since I usually have around 20 kids, and I actually ended up with exactly 20 in my class.  Perfect!


I love that every owl is different!  Yesterday I found a tag in Cricut Design Space and cut 20 of them, in a bunch of different colors.  I wrote all of the students names on them and glued them to the owls' wings.


Lastly I just had to make up my little saying for the center of the poster.  I think my new students will have fun looking for their owls!
