Bulletin Board Tips

Our Teach Starter teacher team has put up many a bulletin board over all the years in classrooms from Texas to Georgia to Indiana, so before you download your next bulletin board kit, we need to divulge a few hard-earned tips!
  1. Use a fabric backdrop. Bulletin board paper is great, but 16-year teaching veteran Randi Smith (check out her all about me bulletin board template!) was able to keep some bulletin board fabric up for years because fabric holds up and lasts forever.
  2. Don’t bother stapling all of your cutouts to your bulletin board right away. Instead, Smith suggests using thumbtacks so you can step back, eye up what’s level and what isn’t, then move things around.
  3.  Use a permanent marker to hide staples. Find a marker that matches the color of your cutouts, and poof, the staples disappear!
  4. Start hanging words in the middle. This tip comes from long-time educator and Texas-based resource manager Natalie Brown. Building out from the center helps ensure you keep things even!
  5. Use clothespins. Planning to make a student work bulletin board? Teach Starter resource creator and former classroom teacher Brittany Collins suggests gluing tacks to the back of clothespins to display student work easily on your bulletin boards. Bonus, these “student work coming” printables work as a perfect placeholder until your students’ work starts flowing in!
