One of the things I did to help make planning language arts a little easier is make new binder covers and side labels. Somehow, pretty binders make planning easier.
I combine August and September as well as May and June. I realize not everyone may do that, so I also made these.
There are side labels that fit a 2 inch binder as well as a 1 1/2 inch binder. If you would like another size, please let me know. You can get a copy of the binders here.
*I completed a remake of this product. There are now 24 binder covers, side labels for 2, 1 1/2, 1, and 1/2 inch binders. All items except the 1/2 inch side labels are editable. I have learned a lot since originally writing this post. You can see these in my TPT store by clicking here.
Now, on to bulletin boards...
I have used every type of paper imaginable to cover my bulletin boards. In the past, I have used art paper, fadeless paper, wrapping paper, newspaper, student-created paper... This year, I am trying something different.
I found these fabrics at Jo Anns.
I am very happy with the way the fabric looks on the bulletin boards. I really wish I started doing this years ago.
This is the side of my filing cabinet. I use this area to post information on assemblies, etc. I just love the yellow dog. Its head is a magnetic paper clip holder. A parent gave it to me a couple of years ago.
This will be the first year I am posting bulletin boards that will stay up all year. I have mixed feelings about it. I'm sure I will be changing the hall displays more often now because I love to show my students' hard work. There are just several things that I need to stay up all year (learning targets, Leadership theme items). I need to save as much of my wall space as I can for my anchor charts.
What have you used to cover your bulletin boards?
Do you change them or keep the same ones up all year?
Thank you for reading!
