Capture the good vibes at the beginning of the school year by starting off with boards like the ones below that show them how important and valued they are.
Back to School Bulletin Board Ideas for the Classroom
Goal Popping Bulletin Board
Energize your classroom with powerful “I Will” statements from your students. Turn the focus inward and encourage your students to write statements that set them up for success during the school year. Cover your bulletin board with plain fabric or paper and use dot accents and a border to create a fun and colorful board. The scalloped edge trim can line the edges of the board while the 6-inch dots are the surface on which students write their statements. Use bulletin board lettering to name the board “This Year I Will…” For a different look at the end of the year, use stars and have students write “This Year I Have…” statements that list something that they have learned.
Classroom Jobs Bulletin Board
Assigning classroom jobs at the beginning of the school year is a great way to establish strong classroom procedures. In classrooms where there are more students than jobs, it can be difficult to think of things for each student to do to contribute to the classroom community. Turn a bulletin board into a solution for this classroom job conundrum by covering the board with plain, bright colored fabric or paper. Use the bulletin board letters from a classroom jobs bulletin board set to create the title and use the versatile classroom job signs to assign multiple students to one task.
Star-Worthy Work Bulletin Board
Creating bulletin boards with student-created work is one of the easiest ways to make a stunning display for your classroom walls. Celebrate your students’ creativity and star-worthy work with a display using colorful star accents to line your board covered in lime green or orange fabric or paper. Write each students’ name on a cheerful star accent and place it on their star-worthy work before hanging it on the board. Bulletin board lettering can be used to create a title that makes your students’ work shine.
