This blog is intended to share insights with other school librarians and was originally created while furthering my education in library media science at USF.
These are wonderful boards!! I may borrow one of your ideas for back to schools. Thanks for posting.
Great ideas! I will borrow some. Thanks.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful bulletin board ideas.
How did you make the sun?
I am sorry I did not respond sooner. We were preoccupied with a new baby in the family! Please see posted comment for creation of the sun.
First, I used poster board to create the base shape for the sun. I cut a circle out of a sheet of poster board then stapled triangular shaped poster board cut outs around the edge. The orange and yellow shapes are construction paper circles that I folded in half and hot glued to the poster board. I trimmed the circles after they were attached around the pointed edges of the sun. I used squares for the smile. The sunglasses were from poster board and construction paper. I laminated the sunglasses and hot glued them onto the sun.
Thank you for sharing your ideas! They are creative and helpful. I am in my first year in the media center, but I love it because I have been incorporating your presentation with ours. Thank you
You are welcome! The internet is a wonderful place to share and glean ideas.
These are great! Where/how do you get/make those great letters (the ones used in number of your bulletin boards i.e. There's "snow" place like your imagination)? I've seen them on a few bulletin boards and love them.
The letters are made using a die-cut machine at my school. I am guessing it is made by Ellison, but not totally sure. Construction paper is placed on the foam/wooden letter blocks and hand cranked through the machine to cut each symbol or letter.
These are fantastic! Thank you for sharing!
Great ideas! Very creative. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your kind words. Happy Bulletin Boarding!
Such wonderful ideas!!! I am so inspired to start the school year! Thank you so much for sharing!!!
Thank you so very much for sharing! I am so inspired to star decorating my library!
Love the Minnion board! Do you have patterns that you could post for making them?
I am sorry, I don't have the pattern. As you can see, I cheated and made the same set of hands, feet, and jumpers for everyone. The glasses/eyes are party supplies from a party store. I created a basic minion shape and sketched out the first jumper to create all of them. I am a big fan of a google searches on free coloring pages for patterns. I may have used the following keywords, "free coloring pages minion" during a google search and found something to help me make patterns.
