My Owl-Themed Classroom- Part II

This is the view when you walk through the door.

Gathering/Teaching Area and Reading Center

Student Mailboxes, Word Work Center, and Small Group Area
Word Work Center
The drawers will be labeled with the choices for this center.

Helpers - I purchased the large pocket card holders about 8 years ago, the helper cards are from 3rd Grade Thought's TpT store and the circles on the sticks are from Kinder Kreations TpT store.
Literacy Centers - the pocket charts are from Target and I made the center cards.
Rules - The owl themed rule cards are from Tweet Resources TpT store.
O.W.L. binders are in the student mailboxes and ready to go!

The chairs are from Sam's Club.

Small Group Materials

The back of the room - writing center and the computers.
Cursive Alphabet from Ladybugs Teacher Files.

Focus Wall (from Leslie's Locker TpT store) and Writing Center

These charts will be used the first day/week of school. I had a hard time figuring out how to hang them on the dry erase board. It is magnetic so I used small magnetic clips and the charts kept sliding down. Then, I hot glued stronger magnets to the clips, nope, that did not work either.
Finally, I used t-pins and the strip (see below) to hang them with skirt clips, which were purchased my first year of teaching 22 years ago to display class books by hanging them from the chalkboard ledge.

Here are the cubbies and a lot of my teaching materials. 
It is easier for me to access materials when they are in plain sight.
My mother made the curtains using the same fabric that is on my bulletin boards.
The math labels are from Amy Groesbeck's TpT store.

The supply bin labels are from Ladybugs Teacher Files and I made the cubby number labels.

Daily Work Drawers-Learning in Wonderland's TpT store
I hope you enjoyed seeing inside my third grade owl-themed classroom.

Have a great school year!
