February Bulletin Board Ideas

Tweet a Sweet Note Cards

Warm your classroom up with these fun and inexpensive bulletin board ideas. Whether you are looking for an interactive bulletin board or a simple display, we have three great boards that you can easily create. So, break out that creativity, whip out those staplers, and make February’s bulletin boards the best yet!

You’re So Tweet

Playing off of the idea of Twitter, use your bulletin board to post messages about your students. Use the Tweet a Sweet Note Cards to have students write positive traits about one another. Cover the bulletin board in a light blue or pink background of fabric or paper. Cut a large bird from construction paper using the drawing on the Tweet a Sweet Note Cards as a template. Once all of the note cards have been filled out and you have reviewed them, hang them on the bulletin board. Students will enjoy seeing what their peers had to say about them, and you will have an instant way to show off how wonderful your students really are.

What’s Outside the Window?

This bulletin board idea is perfect for a creative writing center. Turn your bulletin board into a window with the shade closed and have students write about what they might find if they opened the shade. Use construction paper to create a window frame. Hang a real shade and curtain rod over the “window” to make it seem more authentic. Place a basket of writing journals and a cup of sharpened pencils on a table in front of the window. Instruct students to write a story, poem or other creative writing piece related to what they might find outside of the closed window.

Really Good Gazette Lincoln Birthday Edition

Gettysburg Address

With Abraham Lincoln’s birthday falling during the month of February, you have a unique opportunity to challenge your older elementary and middle school students with the Gettysburg Address. This simple bulletin board asks them to re-write the Gettysburg Address in their own words and post it for all to see. Cover the bulletin board with white paper and hang a printed copy of the Gettysburg Address in the center of it. If you have postcards or photographs of Gettysburg, hang them around the edge of the board. Use the bulletin board as a starting point for a class discussion about what the speech did and why it changed the course of the nation.

Make February’s bulletin boards a place where students can be challenged to think creatively, discuss history and share positive reinforcement. What your students see on the classroom walls makes an impact on them, so be sure you are giving them the encouragement they need. As always, if you use one of the ideas above, snap a picture and post it to our Facebook page. We would love to see how you make the idea work in your classroom.

I really enjoyed viewing these ideas. I always see Febuary bulletin boards geared towards Valentine's Day, but February is filled with so many other topics that can be featured on a bulletin board. My first grade class always get a kick out of my bulletins and my door as they are always different and they say they "learn" from it. Your ideas really help with some creative ways to reach my students. Thanks for the great ideas!

I am always looking for creative writing ideas. I have curtains up in my room so I am part of the way there. I find the bulletin board ideas interesting but with our pacing and wall requirements I have not space. There is a wall outside my room that we pass everyday that I have consider using for the "fun" board. My students love when I do activities like this but its often hard to come up with ideas when the pace is so fast. I always come here to find quick and easy things to do...thanks

I like the window idea. You could also frame a part of a real window. Tweet is great! Especially if your classroom is tweeting in Twitter, you can add an extra layer to the idea.

Tweet idea would go well with our anti-bullying program!

I love the "tweet" idea. That is so cute. I think I can easily adapt this (with a little help) to fit my kindergarten classroom. The kids would really love the praise and I would love their smiles!

I like the you're so "tweet" idea. Last February I used a "SMILE" theme that featured pictures of my students' best smiles and good dental health practices!

I really like the "Tweet" idea! I will probably adapt that to fit my Kindergarten room. As we near the 100th day of school we have been keeping track of "acts of kindness" and we are going to make a list of 100 ways to be kind. I'm going to try to merge those two together! Thanks for the great idea!!

I like the window idea. We have a very small bulletin board in our classrooms & I'm tired of the same stuff. Thanks for the idea!

I love the "Tweet a Sweet Note Cards." As a school counselor, I love activities that encourage students to compliment each other. This would be great for school counselors to implement in classroom lessons and group counseling. It would also be great to incorporate into "No Name Calling Week" which January 24-28.

I love the "tweet" idea, we set up grade-level bulletin boards in the hall, that would be really nice so everyone in the school could see them.

I love the window idea.. might have to find a way to incorporate it in the next month. I really like the tweet one also. So hard to choose with such great ideas.

These are all great ideas as always! I like to put up a board that says "Fall in Love with Reading." Then, the students can write a brief summary or short book report of their favorite book on a heart shaped paper. It's very cute!

The Tweet a Sweet note is SUCH a great idea! I might be adapting it slightly for my 3rd grade class. It's brilliant!

I love the tweet a sweet note. In my kindergarten class we are going to use this! But instead they can write and/or draw pictures of their friend, since some of my lower kids will have problems writing in their own. It will be so cute I'm very excited. I think I'll put some of the papers to tweet at our art station so they can do it throughout February!

Loving the TWEET idea! I did that (sort of) last year, but not for the bulletin board - Can't wait to try this!

I love the idea about making a window and journaling. If I did this I might actually have something behind the window shade and open it a little more each week to spark ideas in the writers who may not have as much imagination.
