    First Day Bulletin Board Ideas

    It works really well for your opening bulletin board to have your kids names on a tree with apples or fall leaves with their names. You could add photos you take on the first day. I have a rocket ship with a few astronauts (for me an my assistant) and shooting stars for their names. I found it at the Teachers store on sale. I also like using the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree, with the letters of their first name and their photo. We do CCBB the first week. I've also used leaping frogs ("Welcome to our Pad") and scoops of ice cream ("A New Scoop of Grade Ones") on brown paper cones.

    Would a rainbow work? Crayons? Balloons? ("Up Up and Away") Colored handprints? Drawings of yellow pencils ("One Sharp Bunch") with their names on? School busses, bugs, dinosaurs (A Roaring Good Year) suns or stars? You could put their names on plates or picnic baskets with a gingham cloth background, ants, and some food cutouts "Grade One is a Picnic" Don't go out and buy something, look through what you already have for shaped notepads or cute clip art, photocopy and put their names on and add a fun title. Have a few extra for newcomers just in case. Let them see how much fun its going to be having you for a teacher, and have a great open house!
