Book Bin Labels

Library Book Bin Labels

Book bins make any classroom library neater and cuter. Once you have the right labels, you need the right book bins. If you have a specific color scheme for your classroom theme, you should go with a muted tone like black or white. 

Or get all of your bins in only one or two colors that go with your theme. 

On the other hand, if your theme is all about bold rainbow colors, them you can have a bright mix of colors for your bins.

See all of my library labels here.

Hollywood Classroom Decor and More

Hollywood Classroom theme

Roll out the red carpet for some lights, camera, action! A Hollywood classroom theme is all about putting the spotlight on your students' strong points; their best work, their improvements, and their growing portfolio of accomplishments. Every student gets that feeling of importance and is ready to always show what they can do. If you want to focus on getting your students to express themselves more and build their confidence in communicating with others or speaking to a group, then a Hollywood theme would be an ideal choice for your classroom. Besides, students love movies, TV, and celebrities so they would definitely be excited to have all of those elements reflected in the classroom decor.

I'll be showing you things that you can use to have a quick Hollywood classroom setup. Everything is ready-made and there's little to no assembly required. Just click on the pics to see them on Amazon.

Owl Themed Classroom Decor

Owl Themed Classroom Decor

What is the typical mood of an owl themed classroom? To me, it's one of quiet study, reading, attentiveness, and wise decisions. Owls make for a great classroom decor choice not only because they are cute but because owls and teachers have a lot in common. In students' eyes, owls are wise and smart, and they always play the teacher in cartoons right? Owls on kid-shows are always reading a book or they may be the wise keeper of knowlege. Cute owl cut-outs usually have big watchful eyes that seem to see everything (even when the teacher's back is turned). There's also the option of having those adorable 'Who...' and 'Hoot hoot hooray' bulletin boards. 

You can definitely get owl themed printables from Teachers pay Teachers. Owl themed name plates, labels, lanyards and more. Borders and trims aren't really printable so I would recommend getting those on Amazon. 
Get the scalloped owl border here and the owl pennants here.

The small owl cut-outs, the table border and the welcome owls above are found on Amazon.

 More owl themed freebies for back to school will be added to this post very soon.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
