I need some ideas, oh and I have become obsessed with owls!
Well I am going to start off backwards from my title and discuss my recent owl obsession. OK since I bought the two cute owl rugs from target (You can see the post and pics HERE) I have seen SO many cute owl things! Then of course I open up my email today and get my Scrappin' Doodles weekly email and what do I see?? They now have some super cute owl graphics!! So I had to grab them and then I started making stuff. Unfortunately I ran out of ink (which ticks me off because I JUST bought new ink today - I need a better printer but that's a whole other post topic). Anyway I made some owl themed table signs and I made an organization binder cover and instead of GO books I am going to have OWL books and my awesome daughter came up with the acronym "Organized While Learning" which I LOVE LOVE LOVE. I also found a super cute owl classroom theme on TPT that has some cute owl themed name plates and a bunch of other stuff. I am not changing everything to owls but I am going to incorporate them into my "Cute" theme, since they are SO doggone cute! I am currently working on making owl themed reading rotation cards too. I haven't made them yet but will be working on them soon.
Anyway, here is what I have come up with so far:
My OWL book cover
My table signs.
Ok now for what I need help with. I four out today that my school is doing a sort of tutoring program for all grade levels BUT they aren't calling it a tutoring program, they are calling them clubs and my principal wants every teacher to participate once a week and have a 30 minute before or after school club. The teacher gets to choose which grade level they want to work with and they get to choose the type of "club" they want to have. They want it to be a FUN 30 minutes that also has the kids learning (obviously). The suggestions were like a book club, learning games, or a smart board activity club (the upper grades have smart boards). So I want to do a Kinder or 1st grade club for either reading or math but I can't think of anything super cute and fun to do for my club. I don't want to get stud with a boring club so I was wondering if you awesome bloggy friends could give me some ideas for a fun kinder/1st grade club that would be a great way for kids to receive enrichment or remediation.
