    I used royal blue fabric on one board this year and it did not fade at all. I used light blue and dark green paper on other boards and they faded terribly, but I carefully removed it and I'm just going to flip it over and use it again next year. When hanging the paper and fabric I used push pins to hold it in place while stapling. This was my first year and I kept my boards up year round. I did have to decorate the hallway board for two different months.

    In my classroom, one board is "We've caught the reading bug!" It was bugs from the teacher store with a grass border at the bottom, green border on the top and sides and a light blue background. I bought a butterfly net from Dollar Tree and used Mavelous tape to hold it up there.

    The other classroom board had a banner above it in royal blue and yellow that said star students. The board itself had the royal blue fabric with a yellow border and said Great Work! I displayed student work on this one.

    My hallway boards were for September--Make good choices--it had an apple tree and the apples displayed good behaviors.

    My simplest was the April hallway board. I used book jackets and bumble bees. The border had bumble bees reading books. I titled it "Get buzzy with a book!" (Buzzy meant busy). I literally thought of and put this together in less than thirty minutes minus the time of punching out the letters on the Ellison.

    Before starting the year, I had considered changing out one board each month, but I think four a year is plenty! I am using the same hallway ideas again this year too! Keeping it as simple as possible.

    Wrapping paper would be a different way of doing it!

    I used paper this year but it is a pain to put up by yourself and fades quickly! I am thinking of going to fabric as well.
