am obsessed with like decorating, but until I have a classroom to call my own (I'm what I like to call a "mobile teacher", usually teaching in 3 different classrooms) I claim the hallway bulletin boards.
Here is an example of the bulletin board I created for our Grade 8 Open House. I had a few days between semesters after my exams were marked and my report cards comments were sent away to work on this. Yes... days... that doesn't happen often!
This bulletin board advertises the courses that we offer in the Science Department. Yep, that's Einstein leading the way!
He guides the students through the 3 pathways...
...and shows all of the courses they take in those pathways, and all of the units in those courses:
There are also the career opportunities, you know, "the places you'll go" if you follow that path.
I used the Grinched font I found on Dafont.com (love that site!), my inventory of bright papers, dollar store wrapping paper for the background and some dollar store ribbon for the balloon. I laminate
Grade School Giggle has some time saving tips on making bulletin boards. I love the idea of using cloth for the background. I remember reading about using dollar store table cloths too. Great ideas - got any more?
