    bulletin board

    We are going to be making leprechauns, but instead of doing the St. Patrick's Day theme with them, we are going to write pieces for "I'm Lucky to be in _________ School". The students will brainstorm things that they like about our classroom/school and describe them. You can do the lucky theme with another topic, if you want. We have also made leprechauns by folding a sheet of 12 X18 construction paper into 8 boxes. If you cut off the first box in the second row and the last box in the second row and glue them to the first row, these become the sleeves. Then, they fold in and you can cut the bottom row into pants by making a "V" slit in the middle.Add a paper plate head and a cotton beard. Students can write limericks. The limericks are glued inside the folded arms. This "8 box" technique works well for book characters, self-portraits, etc. We also have made spring bulletin boards by making vases out of wallpaper and dipping white paint in Q-Tips for pussy willows, or using puffed wheat for them and wadded up yellow tissue paper for forsythia. Students can then write haikus about spring or cinquains. Hope this helps you!
