But, now it is Back to School time and that means setting up my classroom. I used my owl theme again this year just tweaking some of the bulletin board boarders and themes. I did add an owl banner that my Mom purchased for me. It hangs in the middle of my classroom. I love the colors and the owls faces.

On my bulletin boards this year I am going to add to them on a regular basis fun technology facts and tips. One of the teachers last year did a Did You Know? Sign outside her door and she wrote random facts on it each day. It was fun to see what information was presented and I learned some interesting facts. So I thought it would be fun to do the same idea but use technology facts.
Here is my Did You Know version
My first fact. The first computer I ever saw was the size of my current classroom, it was a punch card computer. My how things have changed.
One other change I made this year was I added some washi tape flags to the tops of the pencils I use at each computer. I am hoping this will deter the disappearing of my pencils. (A girl can hope for a perfect world can't she.) I used some tape I purchased from the Dollar Tree. It is a little thicker than regular washi tape.
The pencils turned out cute with the flags.
There were not many changes to my classroom this year so I am thinking that next year I might do a bee or ladybug theme. I am still working on those ideas. I would love to see pictures of how you decorated your classroom. Post a comment or picture below.
