This year, I’ve seen lots of owl themed things up in classrooms. This owl theme lends itself nicely to lots of puns using the word “who”. Here are two I particularly liked:
This teacher (photo above) made her own owl using butcher paper. Too cute!
My favorite thing about these classroom rules is that they’re worded in a positive way. The tell students what to do instead of what NOT to do. Why give kids ideas of things you DON’T want them to do?! As a side note, I learned this same principle in lifeguard training years ago: We were told to yell “walk” instead of “don’t run” because half of the kids would only hear the last half (“run”) and kids who weren’t paying attention would think they’re hearing the command to run all the time. Anyway, props to this teacher!
