Back 2 School Bulletin Board Linky

I am super excited to be hosting my very first linky party!!! Many of us are getting our classrooms ready  for the first day of school and many of you are super lucky to have a few more weeks off! I thought it would be fun to have a linky party that shares all our amazing bulletin board ideas we have started to put up or get ready for our new kiddos.


I wanted to share my main bulletin board that welcomes each of my students to my class. I, of course, saw it on Pinterest. I modified it a bit, but I just love the way it turned out. My team partner made the rocket (she is so artsy) and I downloaded the words for free with the link below. This board is above my desk and the first thing you see as you enter the room. Each of the stars has two student names on it.
If you would like to download the words for free just click on this link from Venspired at TN to grab your copy. Here is the original blog link as well (Shoot for the Moon Bulletin Board) which gives directions on how to create it. 

This is my new helper board. I saw this on Pinterest as well and modified it to fit my board space. I love that each job has a description of the job expectation. Click here for the original picture on Pinterest.

We use California Treasures as our reading series at my school. This is an example of my concept board from last year. The dolphin is hand drawn by my team partner, again. (Isn't she talented) It is on the cover of our first anthology book. She also drew a swan to match our second anthology book for the last half of the year. It concludes the genre of the story for the week, the graphic organizer we use throughout the story, author's purpose, strategies, topic connections and of course the Big Question for the unit. I have the vocabulary and standards posted on a different board nearby. My bulletin boards are super small so I have to get creative with the space I have.

I hope this gives you a quick peak into my classroom, as I am setting it up for the year. I am still working on my math and writing boards and hope to have those ready by the end of the week to share with you. I would love for you to link up below and share all your wonderful ideas and pictures of some of the bulletin boards in your classrooms! Let's inspire each other!
