Are your bulletin boards getting you down? Last month I shared some time-saving tips for hanging
and storing your back to school bulletin boards in Beating the Bulletin Board Blues!
This time I’m back for part 2 with some easy ideas for making them POP!
Use Scrunched Paper
Fancy up your boards with butcher paper! It’s bright,
easy to work with, and readily available!
Use Fun Fonts
There are so many fun fonts out there its hard to choose
which ones to use! Don’t be limited to the lettering you can buy
at the teacher store. Customize your boards with your favorite fonts
in the colors you need. No more running out of certain letters or having to
work around pre-made lettering that is too big or too small!
Use Paper Plates
Your local party aisle has a treasure trove of resources for making
your boards POP! They’re inexpensive, easy to use, and best of all
easy to store! The possibilities are endless for what you can do with
tissue paper, balloons, ribbon, and paper plates!
Use Student Photos
It is pure kid-joy for my students to get their pictures taken!
They absolutely love seeing themselves in our displays and showing
their friends is an added bonus!
Show the Learning Process
It’s not always evident how you got your students to where they are now.
There’s a whole lot of teaching that goes into each and every
project your students create. Share that process by including prewriting,
graphic organizers, notes or journal entries in your bulletin board displays!
I hope you found some tips and ideas you can use in your classroom!
