TEACHERS OF LIST, HELP A SISTER OUT.
Or anyone with a vested interest in bulletin boards.
- •I've got TEN bulletin boards in my classroom. Eight are in the classroom and two more are in the hallway, near my room.
- •Please, give me your best bulletin board ideas.
- •I've looked at Pinterest, but I want to hear from you all.
- •You don't have to have them all finished when school starts. Leave some blank & let the kids help decide so they own it! Ideas will come to you as the year progresses!
- •Character building stuff. 8th grade kids - yowza! Maybe laminate a poster board and have dry erase markers and have a Gratitude board or "Why I Matter" board?
- •I like the idea of book recommendations. You could do a book rec of the month or week.
- •I've had a dream of making a book bulletin board where I print a pic of book covers and next to each is a half page review by a student or two.Ive been collecting dust jackets for years but haven't used them yet. I'm jealous of your overdose of bulletin boards!
- •You can never go wrong with a bunch of maps.
- •Since you have so many, I'd suggest making a few more permanent displays. Here's my favorite one from my class. I made the dinosaur for a school-wife event and he's lived on my wall ever since.
- •First off, holy shit that's a lot of bulletin boards! How big is your classroom!? Secondly, I always take a headshot of each student the first day off class and then laminate it on the top of an extra big piece of colored construction paper. I hang those on the board closest to the door where visitors will see it and I tape up student work...Under each kids photo! (Like this pic except with actual photos of the kids instead of the emoji faces.
