Cheap way to make your paper book bins match your classroom perfectly- $1 book bins from IKEA and spray paint

Behavior Chart with seven levels- owl themed

And I finally got this set up with my little owls glued on to my clothespins. I connected each paper with ribbon, which you can’t see from this far away. Also, when I hot glued it to the wall, I only put a strip down the middle; otherwise the kids won’t be able to pin their clothespin on.
