Teachers, are you tired of spending too much money for bulletin board decorations at the teacher store?
Maybe you would make the sacrifice if you could find what you need. Most so called teacher stores have an abundance of everything except bulletin board materials. Their limited supply usually consists of a few extremes. The materials are extremely lacking in content, extremely commercial looking, and extremely costly. Then you have to decide whether or not you are going to settle for something you really don’t want. You could probably make your own materials if you just had the time.
Finding time to make bulletin boards always been a struggle for teachers. They are a must have; but teachers must have time to do them. Most teachers never have enough have time to do them. They should be fun to do. Instead they are often a source of stress. Stress comes from first of all deciding what you are going to put on your boards. Do you have the materials on hand that you need. Making the boards require tracing letters and cutting them out. A very arduous and time consuming task. You must do this at home or after school. The next arduous task is finding pictures that are appropriate for your bulletin board. Laminating the letters and cutting them a second time. Laminating and cutting out pictures and borders. I have seen teachers take weeks to get one bulletin board done. Most teachers have at least two and sometimes three bulletin boards to decorate. Over a period of days or weeks you manage to finish. You sit down and know that you are done for at least another month.
The principal comes into your classroom,admires your bulletin board and asks you if you would decorate the one in the
hallway. Well, that did it. You start to seriously think about retirement. Relax, don’t quit. Ready made, printable classroom bulletin boards are at your service. That’s right. Just go to your computer and print them out. Most of them will print out in a title banner that has to be scotch taped at the seams. Accompanying lesson sheets that match do not have to be taped. Just print them out and put them on your bulletin board. The bulletin board materials should be laminated for longer wear. Take them to your classroom(or principals office) and put them up in five minutes.
Printable bulletin boards for teachers are the best thing since sliced bread. You never have to get sick over bulletin boards again. You now have an emergency room to go to. The room where your computer is. Anytime you have a bulletin board emergency go to your emergency room to get your bulletin board prescription. You will be treated and done in less than an hour.
