Bulletin Board Ideas for Your Classroom
After a few years of teaching, you are probably looking for some new bulletin board ideas for your classroom. There are a number of ways to use your bulletin board for student encouragement and involvement. Create an attractive focal point in your classroom with the following suggestions.
A birthday surprise
Post all of your students' birthdays to spark communication and interest in one another. Include each birthday on a cork board calendar – and do not forget to mention the students with summer birthdays.
A deserving reward
Use your bulletin board to reward good behavior. Instead of catching your students misbehaving, recognize students doing nice things for one another - a great way to use positive reinforcement. Attendance is the perfect opportunity to mention a student performing a good deed. For additional benefits, have extra push pins to let students tack his or her name onto the bulletin board.
A monthly change
Monthly themes always make nice bulletin boards. Find a variety of bulletin board decorations to focus on the topics currently studied by the class. The environment, different parts of the globe and names of the body parts create excellent educational displays.
With so many bulletin board ideas for your classroom, even the most seasoned educator can find a new theme to try.
