Back to School Bulletin Board

I bet that most of my dedicated readers (i.e. YOU) are back at your respective schools.  When I showed up for the first time on Wednesday, I was ecstatic to learn that I was to be working out of a new room.  My old room was so small that it felt like I was working out of a converted broom closet, as it had no windows or ventilation. Pardon my exaggeration.  It wasn't that bad, but you get the idea...

My new room still needs a lot of love. For the past few days, I've been working hard to get it up to snuff.  One of my projects was to beautify my bulletin board. I was inspired by Ashley from Talk It Up. What do you think? 


Please note, I am not a crafty person at all. I just wanted to liven up the room a bit. The letters were made by me, I printed the letters on colored paper and cut them out (I'm on a budget). I purchased the cardboard popcorn containers from the dollar store, and found popcorn clip art and traced it onto file folders. To add a bit of a 3D effect I decided not to staple the containers flat onto the board and instead opened them up. I'm thinking of adding an "&"or a "-" in between "Speech Language" what do you think? What creative ways have you made your bulletin boards relate to speech and language?

Feel free to follow my Pinterest board related to bulletin board ideas!

  4. I like your bulletin board :) I work with preschool and elementary students, so I did a frog "Hop into good speech" bulletin board this year. I've been thinking of doing a popcorn board, though.

    1. Thanks! I do draw all my own pictures, since I draw most of my pictures for my students as well. :)
