When One Teaches, Two Learn

Jesus Gives New Life!

It seems appropriate to post this bulletin board idea on a day like today – rainy and a bit warmer than the chilly winter days.  Just as new life is springing forth outside, so can Jesus bring us new life!  This bulletin board couldn’t be easier, but it will put your children’s wing in a “spring” kind of mood!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….Easter!

If you’ve been keeping up with When One Teaches, Two Learn for a while, you’ve probably noticed that I like to be creative with bulletin boards and wall displays.  I had all sorts of ideas for Easter bulletin boards and displays, but, when I was surfing on Oriental Trading one day, I found these great posters for Holy Week and Easter Sunday and just couldn’t resist them.  They’re colorful and convey a great message!

I used the “Alleluia” poster on our bulletin board, then added a few palm branches to fill in some of the blank space.

I used this large wall space to show the journey through Holy Week – from Palm Sunday, to the Last Supper, to the cross, and finally the resurrection.  It all centers around John 3:16, though, which I thought was a great poster to include in the set.

With the remaining Easter posters, I decided to decorate a few of our doors 🙂

February Bulletin Board Idea!

I’ll admit, this board can make you go cross-eyed with color, but I don’t live anywhere near a teacher store to go get new borders or letters, so we’re just going to roll with it 🙂 I like the overall concept, though – simple and fun, yet conveying an important message.

What are you doing for your February bulletin board?

Give Thanks Bulletin Board


It’s November, which means it’s time for me to change up the bulletin board!  This board is in a particularly focal point at the top of the stairs, so I make an effort to make it different every month.  I kept the same border and background as last month (need to get as much mileage out of that pumpkin border as I can!), but gave it more of a Thanksgiving spin.  I found a picture of this turkey in a magazine, then recreated it using construction paper.  Then, after making the feathers, I wrote all of our kids’ names on them.  Such a little thing, but earlier in the week I heard one of our kids out in the hallway let out a gasp and say, “LOOK!  My name is on that turkey!  Do you see it?!”  Win.
