I am a day late for this linky party but I took some pictures today and wanted to share a few of my tricks so I am linking up with Joy in the Journey and Compassionate Teacher for their new linky.
I know that it says "Bulletin Board Creation" but I am kind of, sort of doing a "bulletin board substitution".
In my class I have one set of whiteboards:
and one set of blackboards:
I use my blackboards like bulletin boards - only I don't cover them with nice paper or plastic or anything - I leave them black. I add borders to separate the areas.
I also use these markers to write on my boards. It washes off with just a little water and allows me to make anchor charts or add information and write on the board without the messy chalk look or the accidental erasing of the information.
In addition to the anchor charts I make with my class I add posters that I make of information or strategies I want them to have. I do not have my own laminator and our school does not have a laminator - so guess what, I do not do a lot of laminating. To keep my pretty posters from year to year I use this handy dandy taping trick.
I use it for my book theme signs too.
That's it, those are my tricks of the trade for "sort of" bulletin boards. Be sure to link up your ideas.
