My 8th year of teaching is officially underway, and I have to admit that I have a fantastic class this year. I'm so excited for this school year because when you have a great group it's easier to do projects that promote learning when you have students that don't need to be reminded to continually stay on task. I can't wait to share some of these future projects with you!
Here is one of my bulletin boards that I'm so proud of!! To start off, I have an orange wall so it's difficult to use a few colors like red or yellow. I bought a navy blue twin flat sheet to use as my background where most teachers use paper. I did this as a time saver because the lights in my room always fades the paper. The cloth can stay up all year long and I don't have to keep changing it as the year goes on.
Then, I started my search for a puzzle piece. I actually tried to make a puzzle piece by hand but you know how that always turns out...and it wasn't quite what I wanted. So, I continued my search and I found a FREE template on TpT from Creative to the Core. You can find the the puzzle template here
I printed the white puzzle piece out on different colors of construction paper and then added my students names for a great finished product. I added my name and my student teachers name so that we show right away that we are all a team and work together!
Do you have a great bulletin board design? I'd love to hear about them!
