I'm starting my first teaching job in August. What are some good bulletin board ideas for the beginning of the year in a 3-5 grade classroom. I like the idea of centering the classroom around a particular theme (that would change frequently) to use with interdisciplinary units and hopefully teach my students to generalize among subjects (It's an ED/BD classroom). I thought about possibly making a large spaceship with the theme "Blast off into the new year" but couldn't decide if this would be too young for them. Then on the first day of school they would complete some sort of theme related project telling about them that we would hang up around the class. My main concern is that alot of my ideas may be too juvenile for my students, especially considering the age difference among them. What are some good age-appropriate bulletin board ideas for the beginning of the year and throughout the year. Thanks in advance...I need all the help I can get!
