Hello Teachers! I am in Grade 5/6 this year and while I love bulletin boards, I am having a difficult time thinking of ideas. I believe partially because I want it to be perfect!:lol: We are required to have one in the hallway for the first day of school as well as in the classrooms. In the classroom, I am going to put the background and border up along with a sign on what it is. That is not a problem. It is the welcome back one! In the first or second week of school, we are going to do a Picasso style self portrait with oil pastels. Those will end up in the hallway. I would like something happy, warm, welcoming. Perhaps even a fun welcome message. I saw a cute idea with puzzle pieces... it was something like: Welcome to Grade 5. You fit in perfectly. The pieces had their names on them and they were pieced together. Ideas? What is everyone doing with their back to school boards?
