Bulletin boards are NOT my thing. They always seem so nice looking, but they also seem like a waste of time to me. Jen shows me these crazy put together boards from pinterest. And, I just think to myself that I just don't have enough minutes in my day to spend hours redoing the boards around my room or outside my classroom (I am lucky enough to have one right outside my door). Boards that provide a dual purpose, or teach, make sense to me.
This is the board in the hallway outside my classroom. I've set it up so I can change the work as often as I want, but it only takes a few minutes to to do. Even my middle school students love seeing their good work on display!
First we placed some globes and the Liberty Bell inside circles. I wanted to make them super sturdy so we also placed them onto cardstock.
For even more durability I laminated them!
Jen got a chance to hot glue for me (she loves it). On one side we placed the circle. I used the Liberty Bell for my history students, and the globe for my Eastern Hemisphere students.
One thing I have learned is that the clothespins need two tacks on them. It keeps them from slipping on the board.
Here is how it looks without student work on it!
Here is how it looks like again with all of the work on it! The best part is, it only takes minutes to change the work on it and it becomes an all new board!
