Thanks to Eberhart's Explorers I found out that Really Roper is having a Back to School Bulletin Board Linky Party! I am new to all the blogging and linky parties but I adore seeing other teacher's ideas out there!
Here are some of my favorites that I've used and will use this year:
"Hanging In Pre-K With Miss Holder": I created a palm tree scene with monkey's hanging all around and bushels of bananas in their hands with the students names written on them. Above is a picture!
"Look HOOOOOOO's in Pre-K!": This year I am using Owls and we'll be called Olson's Owls! To create the bulletin board I have a large owl that will be sitting in a tree. You can write the teacher's name on the large owl. Then I will have smaller owls out all around and in the tree with a clothespin glued on top with their name. This way I can hang some of their work from the first few days of school! I like to make clothespins with their names on it since we can't write our names legible yet!
"Let's MOOOOOOve on into a New School Year! or "Herding up a Great Bunch"- I did this bulletin board one year for my Mom who is the counselor where I teach at now. You make grass out of bulletin board paper and then add a paper fence (you can purchase a paper fence at school craft or your local school decor store). Then we wrote all the teachers names on cows! (Thanks to a carson dellosa cow notepad) It turned out really cute!
"Leaping into Learning with __________": In the blank spot insert teacher's name. Create a lily pad in center and put a big frog in the middle. Around the lily pad on smaller lily pads glue frogs with the children's name on it. My 3 year old teacher co-worker did this last year for the beginning of school it was great!
Happy Beginning of School Bulletin Board Creating! :)
