I have seen some cute bulletin boards that are made so that teachers can just switch out student work so they don't have to entirely redo their bulletin board each time. I am all about saving time. And when I helped my little sister set up her classroom she had a brilliant idea: burlap. She got some cute, reasonably-priced burlap and we draped two rows of it across her bulletin board and stuck some paper clips up for student work. I loved it.
So the logical thing for me to do was run out and purchase some burlap. My whole classroom is about the Dots on Turquoise theme so I used that with the burlap I bought at Michael's (did you know teachers get a discount there?!).
This is my end product:
I put student names on the stars and intended to leave them up and hang their work behind their stars but the stars blocked too much of their work. I think I'll use a clothes pin to put the stars back up right next to their work.
I'm stinkin' excited about just slipping work on and off the board this year.
