I have two bulletin boards in my classroom. Each one measures 1.2m x 2.5m. So they’re actually pretty big.
You know bulletin board seems boring when you just simply put the student’s work and then…nothing?
and the other one is a magic tree garden.
I’ll explain why.
Christmas simply because Christmas is coming. However I have more reasons why I made the magic tree garden. Here’s why:
1. You can put anything in the garden, from flowers, animals, things in the sky, etc. So it basically covers a whole range of themes and you can put any random things in the garden.
2. The magic tree has a wonderful power over my students. I simply told them that if they are not listening to the teachers, or basically anything that’s not very nice, it’ll make the magic tree sad.
There’s no facial expression there in the picture because I added the tree’s smiling expression after I took this photo.
Anyway, I’ll tell you how to make each bulletin board kay.
I used asturo papers for the snow on the bottom, the sky, Mr. Snowman, St.Claus, the christmas tree, and the presents. I basically just stapled it into the board. For the snowman’s scarf, Santa’s green goodie bag, and the falling snow, I used crepe paper. I stuffed Santa’s bag with crepe papers too to make it puffy. Then I put some ribbon on the presents and tie santa’s goodie bag with the ribbon too. Lastly, I put some glitters on the snow to make it sparkly and to give a magical feeling to it as well.
I asked the children to decorate some Christmas ornaments so then I can put them on the tree. I printed some pictures of the christmas ornaments (basically any christmas themed coloring page you can find on Google) and then I asked them to cut it. When it’s all done then I laminated the ornaments and sticked it on the christmas tree. DONE! :)
Magic tree Garden:
Asturo papers for the sky, the trunk of the tree, the branches (if you can see it), the grass, the road, and the white picket fence. As for the leaves, I cut a lot of crepe papers in the shape of the leaves, and staple them to make it colorful like this:
And job’s done! :)
As for the yellow mouses on the road, that’s the kids’ work that I put up on the board.
Hope that inspires you to decorate your own bulletin board ;)
