First Day Chalkboard Bulletin Board Set – How It Works

Aug 2, 2014 | August, Back To School, Fall, June/July, September, TpT in Action | 2 comments

I get lots of questions about how my Back To School Bulletin Boards work so I thought I would do a quick post about them to explain!
The above it a Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies welcome board using this set.  It’s interactive in that the students stand in front of the bubble in the middle!

I try to make things easy for you… so it’s literally just print at home (or at school and use their ink.)
I trimmed the black as much as I could on most pages so you don’t waste ink.

I did not laminate but you surely can so it lasts year after year!

Next you cut them out.  Most of the items I trimmed the black so it saves on ink for you.
 And then you have your significant other staple on.  =)  Add border and voila (is that how you spell that really!)
I have seen them on Instagram as long, wide, square, rectangle boards.  I have also seen them dressed up with colored bunting and the look AMAZING!!!!  Possibilities are really endless!

So you can pick up my First Day Chalkboard Bulletin Board set on TpT!

I have them for most grade levels and not just kinder.  Click here to see!

    I love your bulletin board set! When I went on Teachers Pay Teachers, I didn’t see the first day of kindergarten set on your page. Any suggestions on how I can purchase the kindergarten set? Thanks so much!
