FREE owl themed nameplates for the classroom!

I put my students' names on these and keep them in the Writing Center. That way they can grab it whenever they need it: to copy their name if they don't know how to write it yet, for alphabetical order activities, for counting activities, to know how to spell friends' names, etc. 
And don't forget, we are just hours away until Google Reader is gone!!!

Classroom Decor {tons of labels}!

I have spent a lot of time redoing the labels in my classroom. A couple of years ago I was so excited to use the free labels from Better Homes and Gardens...but the colors that they come in are not what I was looking for in my classroom.
So I made my own!
Tag styled labels to organize the classroom
I am in LOVE with the 'tag' look of labels!
Tag styled labels to organize the classroom
Some are affixed to tubs, some are attached to trays using rings. Others will be tied on using twine. You could use ribbon too...the possibilities are endless!
Tag styled labels to organize the classroom
And best of all, they are black and white...which saves tons of money on colored printer ink!
Tag styled labels to organize the classroom
This pack includes labels in various sizes, because we all have tubs and containers that come in lots of shapes and sizes.

US and Canadian spelling is included!
