Teachers can decorate back-to-school bulletin boards with an "Up, Up and Away" with each child's name written on a balloon made of construction paper, or they can use a jungle theme with each child's name imprinted on leaves of trees on the bulletin board. A bulletin board decorated with paper stars shows students that they are out of this world when they enter the classroom for the first time.
Back-to-school bulletin board ideas also include cutting out characters from a popular cartoon, movie or television show with advice for how to succeed in bubbles, indicating that each character is engaging with the students. A teacher can also craft construction paper in the shape of crayons with each child's name on a color and post an empty box of crayons in the center to show that all students are part of the pack.
Teachers can show students that they are all part of a team with a special bunch theme. The decorating idea involves creating a green stem of construction paper on the bulletin board and adding colorful paper flowers to create a bouquet. Students can choose flowers, decorate them, and put their names on them to create one giant bouquet.
