#2getherwearebetter: All Things Bulletin Boards!


Hi, friends!  I'm super excited to be linking up with Ashley and Angie today for the #2getherwearebetter linky!
I really believe that bulletin boards should showcase student work.  It's important to celebrate all the learning going on and show students that their hard work is valued by putting it on display.  So, here are my top 5 favorite boards from the last couple of school years!  
Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Color Pals!  

We do a unit on colors very early in the school year and this is one of our first bulletin boards.  The adorable craftivity is from Cara Carroll and can be found here.

Earth Day!

I absolutely LOVE this watercolor earth day project from Maria at Kinder Craze.  We paired it with a writing page from this unit from Cara Carroll.  And of course, the adorable clipart from Nikki at  Melonheadz Illustrating.  I just used my document camera to project it on the SmartBoard and then traced it on poster paper.


Baseball!

Have I mentioned that I love baseball?  :)  In May, we do a 3 week long unit all about baseball.  You can read more about it here.  These amazing baseball player portraits and baseballs are from the amazing Katie Mense at Little Warriors.  You can find them here.  Of course, we make our players into Giants.  They have won the World Series 3 times in the last 5 years after all.


Peace Out Kindergarten!

This was our end of the year bulletin board and I absolutely L-O-V-E-D it!  Again, this amazing craft and writing activity also comes from Katie Mense.  (Can you tell I love this girl!?!)  You can find it here.

The Pond!

This, my friends, has got to be my favorite bulletin board of all time.  Each year, our school celebrates Oceans Week.  Each grade level studies a different water habitat.  In Kindergarten, we learn about the pond.  You can read more about this unit here and here.  This board was a collaboration between all 3 Kindergarten classes.  The background was painted by my former coworkers husband who is an incredible artist.  The water was made using a blue shower curtain.  All of the animals that live in and around the pond were made by our students.  

Here is a close up of the water.
We had so much fun putting this together and the students were so proud to call it their own.  

Which board is your favorite?  Let me know by leaving a comment below!
