Bulletin Board, Showcase, and a Giveaway WINNER!

I just finished this bulletin board today in our school atrium. (Click on the photo to see an enlarged version.) We all have to take turns decorating it. Well, since I am on a bird themed kick, this is what I came up with. I painted the branch right on to the bulletin board paper and the kids were FASCINATED watching me as they went to lunch. It was so cute.

Continuing the bird theme, I added these quetzal birds made by my third graders to the display boards, also in the atrium.

They drew a cage on to white tag board using a black Sharpie marker. The quetzal was drawn separately and colored with oil pastel. They were then cut out and glued to the cages so that the birds are "uncaged," or free. This was an extention of our Mexico theme.

I also added our clay projects to the showcase, all bird themed, of course.

There are owls by first grade.

There are also clay bird tiles by fourth grade.

Here is a close-up of one of the tiles.

And there are those wild and wiry birds by second grade.

Which brings us to the winner of my Wild & Wiry Clay Bird, chosen by Random.org.

And the winner is...

Congrats! I will need your address so that I may send you your prize. Please shoot me an email.

Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and kind words. I will have to do another giveaway once I reach 300 followers!


  1. these are great. i am having a "bird thing" myself this year!

  2. I just LOVE the uncaged quetzals - the contrast of the colorful bird against the black line drawing of the cage is wonderful!
