I’ve always been skeptical of the value of bulletin boards, to be honest, or at least of their value relative to the effort they take. To me, it’s seemed like time spent on bulletin boards could be better spent planning lessons and activities. But I’m open to rethinking this, especially this year, after my two sons (grades 1 and 4) have been inspired by a hallway bulletin board to do kind deeds for others.
I’ve often used bulletin board space for maps that relate to current studies. I like to assign poster-creation projects, and sometimes display the best posters on the walls of the room; if I had a bigger bulletin board to fill I’d put the posters there.
