Bulletin Boards

Bulletin boards have to be one of the most time consuming and frustrating things that I work on in my classroom, and yet, I LOVE them!  Changing bulletin boards is one of my least favorite things to do, but once I come up with an idea I like, I can't wait to put it up!  The majority of my bulletin boards don't change throughout the year, my Math and Social Studies boards will change to represent the unit we are on, but the backgrounds and borders stay the same - which is a huge time saver! 

We will start with my favorite - my social studies board

I wanted my bright colors and polka dots to continue onto my social studies board - so using my handy dandy punches I decided to make our country look a little more fun!

This is the only bulletin board that is a repeat from last year  - I worked pretty hard on this one and wanted to get more use out of it - plus it technically has polka dots!

I found this saying on Pinterest and decided to turn it into a bulletin board for next to my door.

Technically this isn't a bulletin board - but close enough!  I wanted to put something above my books, and being the math teacher, I couldn't help but incorporate a little arithmetic!

We also have a board in our hallway, and in the past I have changed it out every season, this year I wanted to come up with something that I wouldn't feel obligated to change all the time -  I am pretty happy with how it turned out!  I purchased the mirror from Goodwill for $3, I then took it out of its frame and attached it using some fun duck tape I found at Wal-Mart.



  1. I love the saying above your books...I haven't done my bulletin boards, so I will have to keep this in mind!

  2. I would love to know more about your twister math board. I just started teaching 5th math also and love your blog. Keep up the good work.

  3. I just found your blog through Pinterst. I sure hope you post your ideas on TeachersPayTeachers as you can make a fortune on your work. I just taught my first year of 5th after 25 years in 2nd! Talk about a total curriculum challenge. I'd love to learn your ideas! Thank you! sheila ")
