Hello and welcome to the July Bright Ideas Link-Up. This month, I have decided to do a simple post on something that I end up wasting time on every year…bulletin boards! For me, they are the greatest thing to see and the absolute most annoying task in a classroom. So, I would like to introduce you to a simple strategy that will save you a ton of time.
The first thing I do is lay the set out on the floor. I lay it exactly how I would want it posted on the wall, and I measure it just to make sure the dimensions I used on the floor will work in the bulletin board space I have.
When I put the parts of the set on the bulletin board, I only put one staple in the top of each piece. If I mess up, I do not have a ton of holes in the pieces. Needless to say, I did not mess up. Laying the pieces on the floor helps tremendously.
And there you go! Flawless bulletin boards on the first try!
