This bulletin board brings out the sweet tooth in everyone. Have a parent helper cut out 100 large jellybeans in different colors. A good size is one-half of a sheet of construction paper per jellybean. Cover the back of the bulletin board with recycled paper bags from the grocery store. Separate students into 5 groups and have each group come up with 20 math problems that equal 100. They can use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. After their problems are completed, share them with the class and have the students hang their math jellybeans on the paper bag bulletin board.
How Does Your Garden Grow
There is nothing like some spring cheer to make the long winter months feel just a bit better. Cover the top half of your bulletin board in blue paper and the bottom half in green paper that has been fringed to look like grass. Have students create 100 different objects to place on the bulletin board to create a sunny, spring scene. They will need to brainstorm, collaborate and delegate tasks. Depending on the grade level, you may want to break them into groups and assign each group a specific task (i.e. – create flowers, make a tree, etc.). At the end of the task, your bulletin board will be 100 items fuller and spring will definitely be in the air.
Often, as teachers, we overlook the importance of a bulletin board that does nothing more than celebrate our students. The 100th Day of School is a great, mid-year celebration that gives us that opportunity. The week before the 100th Day of School, take digital pictures of all of your students and print them out. Cover the bulletin board in colorful wrapping paper and label it “Look Who Reached 100!” Mount the students’ pictures to pieces of construction paper and label each with the child’s name. Hang them on the bulletin board and make a fuss over how proud you are of each child. For some students, you may be their only source of encouragement and praise.
