Winter Bulletin Board
Behavior Modification Chart
The Behavior Modification Chart is one of my best tools for discipline in the classroom. The Parents are notified in the beginning of the year of the effectiveness of the chart and also reassured that their child is given ample opportunities to modify their behavior. Which simply means that if they are caught doing something "good" after their worm has been moved then they go back to the "green" apple. Positive re-enforcement is always used in
the classroom and children are encouraged to use their brain to figure out how to solve differences with each other.
Our Future Is So Bright We Need
We Are Special
On the first day of school I take a picture of each child, frame it and create a "We Are Special" Bulletin Board.
Welcome To Our Hive!
Create this hive using a piece of white poster board. Draw a hive and color it. Write children's names on small bees and place all around the hive. Place this on your door.
No Bones About It, Learning Is Fun
Draw a dog on white poster board, color and cut out. On small bones write the children's names (use bone template in templates tab above).
Fall Fun Board
Have the children paint pumpkins and decorate the walls. The back drop is made from blue and green bulletin board paper. I added a bulletin board set from my local Teaching Store.
The tattle turtle is an effective tool when you have alot of tattling in the classroom. The poem is read in the beginning of the year and lets the children know that they can "tell" the turtle anything they want.
Meet Tattling Turtle
Tattling Turtle will listen to you,
When you have something to say.
Just talk to him or write it down,
and tell what happened today.
But if you or anyone else is hurt,
Please do not delay.
Come to me so I can help,
and make sure that your ok!
sincerely, Mrs. Jones
The job chart teaches
responsibility and not to mention makes the children feel special.
Apple Wish Tree
Making Friends At Preschool
For this Bulletin Board I made the "world" using a piece of white posterboard and coloring it. Place it in the middle of the bulletin board. Connect the bears with the children's names on them. Place the words "Making Friends At Preschool." at the top.
This larger than life fish bowl coincides with our water life theme. It is made from a large piece of white bulletin board paper and colored with crayons and markers (yes it was time consuming but well worth the kids faces) I added some colored rocks, castle etc. This is an interactive board as the children create their own fish in the art center and are then put "in" the bowl!
Cot List Bulletin Board
Each year I find a creative way to display the "cot list." This serves as a visual to myself and also for subs who will need to know which cot belongs to who. The stars and sheep were cut out from construction paper and the moon was cut out from yellow posterboard. You can find the stars and sheep stencils in the template tab.
This cot list board is very simple! Use a Dark Blue poster board, cut out stars,glue them to board and laminate. Use a dry erase marker to put cot number and child's name. Add the moon to the side using yellow poster board.
We're Wild About Our School!
What A great Bulletin Board set for the beginning of the year. I ordered this from
Oriental Trading Company for $12.99 and came with the alot of letters to write
anything you want to! I decided on the above. Add a "sky" and "grass" with
bulletin board paper!
Bring some Positive Reinforcement to your classroom by making this easy fish bowl from poster Board and laminating. Add a fishing pole with yarn. When you "catch" a child doing something good like sharing, being kind etc their fish goes into the fish bowl.At the end of the day I get my "basket" of treats and have the children gather around to announce who was caught being good and what they did. Those children receive a "big" round of applause and a special treat from the basket!
Have fun displaying animals made by the children on this Farm Bulletin Board. Make the barn from red construction poster board and add green and blue bulletin board paper for the grass and sky. See templates for animals.
