The pictures above are from 2013. This is the first year I added the fabric. Some boards stayed the same all year. For example the monkeys, we made as a class on the first day of school, stayed up all year and we added bananas for achievements (I can count to 10. I read 5 books etc.) The school behavior board stayed up as well. The rest of the boards had content that changed with lots of student work and learning targets. As you can tell, I was pretty big into the Safari theme that year!
Last year, I kept THE SAME backgrounds!!! YES I SAID THE SAME!!! But, I cleaned up the content and added these adorable banners! These were my boards at the beginning of the year. The same fabric… the same borders, but a totally different look! I also made classroom decor to match my bulletin board colors. It gave my room much cleaner look. As you can see, I am not a type A model classroom girl, and I haven’t spent thousands of $$$$ to make everything match and look like a show room ( you know, all the classrooms you drool about on pinterest). But there IS a method to my madness.

This bulletin board is from 2014 it stayed up in the hallway ALL YEAR and students were able to put up their achievements and student pride work next to their favorite superhero.
They LOVED doing this.. so each month it would look a little different (if only I had taken pictures) but the main board (and all the work) stayed the same.
