Birds in the woods classroom theme for upper grades

I guess a more accurate title for this post would be "Birds over a wooden board background classroom theme", but that wouldn't have quite the same appeal, would it?

The upper grades mention, however, is pretty accurate.

I've been creating this set for a while and I couldn't wait to show it to you. Here we go!


Welcome! banner - every letter displays a different bird. The triangular pieces come in editable form. Thus, you can enter your own message. How about "Welcome the Mrs. Tweet's classroom!"?

The most important thing I have to mention is that this set is editable in Powerpoint. So every piece that I'm going to show you has its equivalent editable version.

Why is that important?

Because you'll get to meet the specific needs of YOUR classroom!

The alphabet cards display the letters of the alphabet AND inspirational words. The letter "c" stands for "courage" and "d" for dedication, for example.

I've only taken a little poetic license with "x" for "extraordinary"!

But, let's say, you prefer other words or you'd like to include vocabulary you'll be focusing on, here's where the editable feature comes in handy - you can add your own words to the alphabet cards!

The months of the year come in two different versions. In the picture above, the design changes every three months (a season). The other version has the same design for all the months.
They also come in editable form so you can enter your own text and turn them into, for instance, center signs.
Here's the other version:

There are standard name plates and they match the table signs, but I'm super excited about the trifold name tents I've created for this set.

The trifolds include a place for students' names, a multiplication chart (1-12 tables), prefixes and suffixes examples, and parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns).

And the background comes in eight different colors to match the table numbers.

The set also includes table numbers (1-8), word wall headers in circular or rectangular shapes, calendar set (years, months, days of the week, days 1-31, today, yesterday, tomorrow), name tags matching the name plates/trifolds, birthday sign, and welcome poster!
