Welcome Back to School Bulletin Board Idea

Welcome your students back in dynamic style with this colorful board from Garden of Praise. Students are sure to love seeing their picture as they walk into the classroom. Not only that, the board acts as a "year book" of sorts, helping students get to know each other in the first few weeks of class!

Check Out This Lineup Bulletin Board

  • Background: Light blue bulletin board paper.
  • Title: "Check Out This Lineup!"
  • Border: Complimentary solid color bulletin board border or summer themed trimmer.
  • Decoration: 1) The Clothesline. Cut several pieces of string or yarn, stretching them across the bulletin board {from end to end}. Attach them with thumb tacks. 2) The T-Shirts. Create a card stock template to trace onto construction paper or find a black and white clip art print to directly onto the colored paper and cut out. Paste a student picture onto each t-shirt, scripting their name underneath, and "hang" them on the clothesline with mini wooden clothespins. 3) The Details. If you have room, add a sun cutout to the corner using yellow construction paper or scraps of yellow background paper.

Vicki writes, "I just made this today! I had all the kids color a t-shirt that I had cut out. Then stapled yarn and hung the t-shirts up with clothing pins. Their names are written in the middle of each shirt. It was quick and easy!"

Thanks again, Vicki, for sending this in!
