Elect to Be...
This bulletin board was created several years ago when Red Ribbon Week and a major election both came about in just a few days from each other. The candidates were my principal and superintendent. The bunting ad campaign posters at the bottom at interest and a 3-D element that are eye-catching. You can use this same idea for other themes. "Elect to be Excellent"-study skills, character traits of the month, etc... "Elect to Read"-reading strategies, AR goals, etc...
Thankful for These JEANiuses
This turkey was made using a pair of my toddler son's overalls. The feathers contain the names of my band and choir students. This display could work for classrooms or any group. It would be great to create a board that celebrates teachers by putting their names on the feathers.
Our Armed Forces
I have this board in my hallway right now. It is actually 5 bulletin boards! Each of the bulletin board kits represents each of the five branches of our armed forces. The bulletin boards contain the name of the branch, their colors, motto, mission, song and lyrics, a little history and more. I used just a portion of each kit so that my board focused more on the music and less on the history of each branch. You can get them all in one bundle HERE.
Instruments of China
Any month is a great time to focus on world music and cultures of other countries. This bulletin board kind of has fall colors in it so I think it works for this time of year It is SUPER easy to display. Print and post. No cutting or trimming needed.
This bulletin board references a slightly older version of Facebook, but students will totally make the connection. It highlights a few composers who give "status updates" in the form of quotes or short narrations.
Composers of the Month
Aaron Copland's birthday is in November. Celebrate it with this Composer of the Month bulletin board set. It also comes with writing prompts.
