Owl Time (and a little give away!)

What a beautiful day we were blessed with today! Now it has turned into a beautiful summer evening. I had to go put a sweater on because I was so chilly! A chill in the air can only mean one thing...School is right around the corner!

My daughter and I got up early to work on crafts together. We decided to make owls for my classroom today. We used the awesome table in her room. Isn't this table awesome? Someone was ready to put it out for the garbage man before I rescued it!
We believe in making big messes before we are done! Just wait until you see
the finished product!
Using my Cricut, I cut out several different sized owls to make name tags out of. Then I had the idea to turn some into clocks to use for my daily schedule. I'll be able to post the scedule with the owls sitting next to each activity to help my students become more aware of time and so that they know what's coming next. 

I'll use this pocket chart, but with my owls for clocks...Hopefully they will fit!
I got a little carried away with my little owlets! It was so much fun spending time with my daughter. She is such a fun person to spend time with. She is helpful, kind and encouraging...She'd make a good teacher!!

I felt kind of sorry for this owl. He didn't fit in with the others. Look how beautiful he is. Would you be able to provide a safe home for him? He's made of paper and a little on the delicate side. You may want to laminate him to protect him. If you would like him, follow me, and leave me a comment with your e-mail.I'll have a random draw to pick a winner this owl will fly home to! You have until August 1st...Good luck!!

What kind of cricut do you have and where can I get one? Thanks for sharing. I would love to make a home for your owl. It you might want to do a flat Stanley tho.g with him. He can fly from class to class having adventures! Wow, that's a good idea. Let's set it up. "Where in the world is Ollie the Owl? --Jessica
