Bulletin Boards, Walls + Classroom Doors

Thought it would be fun to share some of the sights I've seen as I raced about at the end of the school year. It was an especially delightful romp around the Midwest, wearing my "Author/Illustrator" hat. Hope that these ideas get your creative juices flowing for next year! This could take all week, so be sure to 'pop' back through again -- if these ideas are the sort you're looking for.

Here's an ol' favorite preschool bulletin board. 
YEAH DR. Seuss!!

My last visit of the school year was to St. Paul Catholic School. 
I thought those of you in similar settings would be especially appreciative of the bulletin board portraying the rosary with the children's photos included.

You simply must take the time to read what these almost-second-graders have to tell their incoming first grade peers. These are enlargements of the sunflowers featured in the 'growing' garden bulletin board above.

This last masterpiece was also in the hallway at St. Paul. 
As you enter their building the words: 
"RESPECT- Learn it, Give it, Earn it, Get it!"
are permanently painted above the entrance hallway.
I have collage that image in with the others below. 

The 'bulletin board' of puzzle pieces of personalized creations were brightening up the hallway to the upper grades. How awesome when the whole building is in on the same theme! photo of: Bulletin Board on Respect with Student's Puzzle Artwork

Come back to see Part 2 of this collection. I will kick it off with the acrostic bulletin board for R.E.S.P.E.C.T. and I'm sure you'll appreciate seeing what they've come up with for these letters. 

Part 3 has an amazing Fill Your Bucket door decorated for Teacher Appreciation Week. Plus the best ever door for "The Lorax."
