    This September will be my 2nd year of teaching. I am being moved down to 4th from 5th AND changing schools. In my new classroom I have the brick cement walls. How do you hang up posters, pocket charts, etc. on these types of walls? Last year I was able to use push pins.

    Hot glue works best, but will remove paint unless you're careful when removing. I use hot glue to put up clothes pins, then hang my posters/student work using the pins. I've also seen teachers hot glue those paper clamps to the wall and use them in the same way. I just like the fact that I can decorate/paint the clothespins.

    Does the glue not pull paint off the walls?

    Do you all mean hot glue applied with a glue gun? I'm so not crafty or handy so I wanted to clarify what hot glue is. Thanks.

    I use sticky tack (the blue kind, NOT the yellow), the wax backed clips, or Scotch brand sticky things that are black and spongy (I don't know what they're called, sorry!). Masking tape and even painter's tape pulls the paint off the walls.

    This is going to sound really weird, but where I did my student teaching, a lot of teachers used these stickers that you use for colonoscopy bags. There was a big plant that would give you a trashbag full of them if you were a teacher and requested some. I still have a ton 3 years later! They are great because they don't peel the paint, and the stuff can stay up FOREVER! I had stuff that I put up in September that was still up at the end of the year!

    We had brick walls in my school during student teaching. She used sticky puddy and she hung string from wall to wall.
