Bulletin Boards for the Regular Classrooms
(wait is there such a
thing..."regular" classroom? *smiling*)
Oh COME ON! You know its
funny! This is an anti-bulletin board. This is
for those times when you just don't have the time to make a
"real" bulletin board. Make your own barcode
or print one out from a desktop publishing program.
WHOS In Our Room
submitted by Cathy
A quick and easy board. The Dr. Suess pictures were
from a bulletin board kit, but you could also use student
drawn artwork of WHO characters. The little books
contain the name of students in the classroom.
Variations: Look WHOS Learned their Multiplication
Tables, Look WHOS on Honor Roll, Look WHOS in Band, etc...

This bulletin board is a great way to
greet new students in your classroom or to say good-bye at
the end of the year. Each cow has the name of a
student on it. The "grass" at the bottom was
created by cutting strips in a long piece of bulletin board
Back to SCHOOL
I love punny titles and this one is too
cute. The background contains netting, which is a
great way to attract student attention. Each of the
fish has the name of a student on it. Print the fish
from your favorite desktop publishing company or buy them
premade at the teacher store.
That Use Technology
This is a board that I posted in the computer lab.
It highlights a wide variety of careers that use
technology. You could add the URLs of websites about
each career if you wanted or have students
research/brainstorm how each person might use technology and
write a short explanation. A double border adds a bit
of color and interest.
This bulletin board is used as a reference for computer
users. It contains the names and URLs of some websites
that help writers. www.dictionary.com,
Out for Computer Bugs
This is an informative bulletin board that describes what
a virus is as well as other pesky computer problems like
Trojan horses and worms. It offers tips for keeping
your computer safe. I used some creepy fonts (one is
called Germs) and clipart in Microsoft Word to create this
board. The ladybugs are actually sheets of notepad
paper. Click on the picture

Accelerated Reader Monthly Goals
(created by Sharon)
This bulletin board is used to showcase the names of
student who met their monthly Accelerated reader goals.
The leaves and apples on the tree all have student names on
them as well as the clouds.
There are many variations for this board. It could be
used to recognize almost any kind of acheivement, performance
group members or sales event high sellers.
See Birdie Close-Up!
It's made from a used ink cartridge.
||A used mouse was wrapped throughout the tree and
then attached to the side. I used hot glue to secure this to
my door. It comes off easily and doesn't hurt the
door. The caption read "Twas the nigh before Christmas
and all through the house..." "Not a creature was
stirring, not even a mouse."
The gifts under the tree are just 3 1/2 floppy disks with tiny
bows attached to them. The star on the tree is a CD.
Close Up of
Why Snowmen Should Not Drink Hot Chocolate
Although you can't see it well. there are
Internet addresses written all over the globe that are touristy or
information sites about that country.
These cameras were found in Print Shop.
The caption reads "Picture Yourself Reaching Your Typing
Goals". The little cameras have the goals for each
grade level on them.
- Hangin' Out in
- submitted by Laurie
- This bulletin board is created by cutting out t-shirt
shapes from construction paper, adding student names on
each shirt and attaching to a string with clothes
pins. Add the caption "Look Who's Hangin' Out
in Sixth Grade" (or Band or Choir or Kindergarten,
- Variations: Instead of using rope or string you
could just draw your clothes line with a marker or piece
of chalk, add the clothes pins to the shirts but then
staple the shirts to the board. You could also print the
t-shirts from a Print Shop like program with various
- Shining Stars
- submitted by Cathy
- This celestial bulletin board is fast and simple to
create. This example uses an already made kit, but
it could be easily duplicated by printing stars from a
desktop publishing program or by cutting them out of
construction paper or foil. Add student names to
the stars and the heading "Shining
- Happy to BEE in
- submitted by Phyllis
- This is a nice easy board to start the year.
Print out several bumble bees from your favorite desktop
publishing program or purchase a bumble bee notepad from
your local teacher store. Add student names to the
wings and scatter them all over the board. Add the
heading "Happy to BEE in 8th Grade" (or Choir,
First Grade, etc...).
