Board Covering Dilemma So I don't use the chalkboard in my classroom. It takes up an entire wall and it's on the opposite side of the room from my rug. It's also been destroyed by being painted over multiple times with magnetic paint (some of which is light blue) and it's really, really ugly. Last year I covered it with bulletin board paper. It was incredibly difficult to do on my own (my co-teacher wasn't hired yet) and I had to use carpet tape because the previous teacher in the room said their stuff kept falling down. It stayed for the entire year, not perfectly, but it stayed. I used it for my science and social studies classwork and word walks and then another part was used for the calendar, daily objectives, flow of the day. (Thinking of maybe squeezing the job chart there this year too, we'll see what fits.) The main problem last year was hanging up students' work. We put construction paper up that we kept up all year with tape. I tried to hang their work with magnets so that I didn't rip the paper when I changed the work, but the magnets never actually stuck to the so-called magnetic board and magnetic tape wasn't strong enough. So we just taped everything up and then had to be really careful when we took it down so as not to rip the bulletin board paper. I can't decide what to do with it this year. 1. Do the same thing, hope that it will look better with both my co-teacher and I working together to hang it. Possibly use clothes pins attached to the paper to hang their work? (Not sure if the bulletin board paper will rip due to the weight of the clothes pins?) 2. Cover it with contact paper. I'm really worried that it will be see through with a black board behind it or we'll do a lousy job of hanging it and there will be tons of air bubbles. 3. Fabric? Not sure how expensive this would be, and whether or not clothes pins could be maybe hot glued to this to hang work? 4. Corkboard- not sure how I'd actually attach this and whether or not it would stay? (Or where I'd buy it) 5. I'm open to suggestions!!! Thanks!
